I just saw the movie, American Haunting last night....and it left me confused??
Apparently the story is based on true events, but which events are true??? The haunting or the rapping?? Or both?? I had my parents over for dinner so
I didn't get to pay full attention since we were chatting a lot, but it left me with so many different conclusions.
Was the girl haunting herself b/c of her father molesting her?? Or was it a curse that the lady put on them b/c the land?? Did the entity possess evil
in the father?? It's clear in the movie that the father was rapping the daughter...but they also made it clear that an evil-like spirit was torturing
that poor girl.
I know don't much about the true story other than it happened in Tennessee and someone wrote a book about it. Also, it claims to be the only report
of a spirit killing someone...which I find hard to believe.....
To me...It appears to be a family tormented by a father molesting his daughter and these claims of hauntings they made sound like excuses for dealing
with such a sensitive situation esp. around that time era. Also, it not uncommon for rap victims to have "haunting like" nightmares and terrors
where they claim feeling like they have been pinned and held down to the bed leaving them to feel like a ghost or spirit is responsible. The little
girl most likely poisoned her father herself and the family claimed it was "the evil spirit"
The movie was unclear though.....It's like they didn't really know what was true and just threw in all the possibilities’...leaving it up to the
viewer to decide....
So, what was it?? Anyone into or familiar with this legend?
