    unusually creepy, this film gives some high-profile J-horror remakes a run for their money, it is scary, the cast is rather fitting, and it has a relatively solid plot. Full Review »

    Not a typical horror flick, An American Haunting gives a creepy interesting look at hauntings in the 19th century. Despite being heavily cut short, Sutherland and Spacek both give more than adequate performances. Full Review »
