Writer and director Courtney Solomon has made a spine-chilling script and the effects in addition the cinematography is smooth. In case your wondering, this is based of a book by Brent Monahan ("The Bell Witch: An American Haunting") if your interested in reading the book go a head it's probably better then the movie.
