Based on true events.
A love story turns tragic when entangled with a legendary haunting in BELL WITCH: The Movie. After stumbling across an ancient burial (in what is now known as the Bell Witch cave), brothers John Jr. (Jeff Kunard) and Williams Bell (Cody Newton) bring a strange curse home to their family. Now their father, John (John David Hart), and sister, Betsy (Hope Banks), experience phantom attacks in the night and strange visions during the day. It is the Bell Witch. Nothing enrages her more than Betsy's relationship with her loving fiance, Joshua Gardner (Todd Geren). Their only hope of escaping is death...and the Bell Witch is more than happy to help. Betsy Palmer (Friday the 13th) serves as the voice of the Bell Witch.
Bell Witch Movie Closely follows the historically documented legend of The Bell Witch of Adams, Tennessee, BELL WITCH combines a chilling soundtrack of original and traditional Bluegrass and Americana songs with sweeping, scenic images to create an eerie backdrop for this 200 year-old legend.

“With a proliferation of ‘slasher’ films filled with sex, violence and vulgar language, it’s becoming harder than ever to find movies that are appropriate for families while still providing suspense and fright,” says Director / Producer S. Shane Marr. “We wanted to make a movie that told the terrifying and true story of The Bell Witch and that stayed appropriate for the widest variety of viewers.”
As with any motion picture, parents should review BELL WITCH: The Movie before allowing their children to watch so that they may decide what is most appropriate.
