The truly scary thing about this movie was that it actually happened.Other then that, it really wasn't scary at all.Basically just a boring movie with a ending that'll make you go What the .......!

The film is based on the poltergeist story involving a family in rural Tennessee in the early 1800's. The story is filled with the garbled and incoherent dreams of seemingly possessed Betsy Bell, played by Rachel Hurd-Wood. In a movie built around a ghost story it was disappointing to see cheap scare tactics instead of making the movie all around eerie. I am not sure wh...
