RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

The star of Don't Look Now and the star of Carrie appearing in a film as weak as this - now that's scary.

On more than one occasion...a girl scrapes her fingernails across a wood floor as an invisible poltergeist attacks her. The wood floor may not be a chalkboard, but it's close enough.

Writer-director Courtney Solomon can't decide what kind of movie he's making.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Whatever really lurks behind the story of the kinda-famous Bell Witch remains hidden in "An American Haunting," a murky script that only makes us wonder all the more: What the heck?

This is one of the more annoying, irritating, obnoxiously un-scary scary movies in recent memory.

Solomon's flimsy fright fable An American Haunting couldn't scare a lobbyist from a Washington D.C. politician's picnic...a sluggish period piece boofest.

If you're a believer in ghosts and spirits you might enjoy this film. It just made me want to find out what really happened in that house.

Despite . . . general bumpings in the night, not to mention several rounds of people getting smacked around by unseen hands, [it's] just a whole lot of nothing going on

One Guy's Opinion

The only real mystery about this nineteenth-century Exorcist is what could have possessed Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek to agree to star in it.

Great scary atmosphere, but the film's loud sound effects, repetitive thrashing-about scenes, and overpowering music just about drove me nuts.

a cross between "Masterpiece Theater" and "The Exorcist."

Someone should call The Ghostbusters to make An American Haunting disappear from movie theaters like a ghost is expelled during an exorcism.

This is the type of movie that you should be getting for free on television.

Throughout the film, doors slam, windows shatter and poor, battered Betsy wakes up screaming with tiresome regularity; even Sutherland appears bored by it all.

There's thunder and lightning and wall-to-wall music. But it still doesn't add up to much of a movie.

The dark force behind this movie is the relentless power of cliche.
