So whos seen it yet? Theres obviously no comparison to the blair-wasteofmytime-witch. At first it kinda reminded me of the Salem movie with Wynona
Ryder in it.
If even half of what happened in this movie was real, I would have definetly crapped my pants and believed in witches or demons or whatever they
thought it was. Plus it happened in 1817, so people were more apt to belive in witches.
Theres some good haunting stuff and poltergeist things that happen. Anyone thats a fan of either subject will enjoy it. I saw it in a theater where
an usher had to come in before it started and tell everyone to shut up or they'd be throw out. So as you can imagine I was in a very noisy theater
and it was hard to get into the "mood" like I would be able to at home with the lights off and no cell phones ringing and people crunching popcorn
or little kids lauging at every damn thing that happened on the screen. I wasnt totally thrilled with the movie, but im sure if I watched it at home
instead it would have been better.
*Possible spoiler alert, im gonna discuss the movie in more depth*
Anyways the camera angles pretty much made the argument that it was a poltergeist and not a haunting, plus the "entity" followed the girl. At first
I was thinking it was some type of asteral-attack on part of Ms. Batt the supposed witch. But then she says she didnt put a curse on them and the
father is one who cursed the family. I hadnt read about the Bell witch until after the movie so that I wouldnt have any preconcieved notions. And that
The story seems to be the least likely description of what actually happened. After reading about the true story, and how the ghost returned several
years later and talked to the son and prophesised and so on, it would rule out poltergiest. Im thinking it was a demon in real life. If your a fan of
the Bell's Witch "true" story - dont see this movie or the other 2 which came out recently. Usually people get uptight when a movie isnt exactly
how they imagined it. Otherwise see it in a quiet theater.
Oh and wasnt that carriage crash the coolest carriage scene ever?? In real life Andrew Jackson (pre-President) came to the farm and his carriage
stopped for no reason and was impossible to move, until he mentioned that it must be the Bell's Witch, after which he heard something and the
carriage began to move again.
