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

  • There are jolts galore in a movie stuffed with the basic tricks of the evil-spirit trade - banging noises in the attic, slamming doors and windows, spinning clocks, shaking beds, rabid beasts, disappearing children and the occasional moment of eyeball-rolling possession. show more

  • Solomon crafts a quality horror piece from strong performances and effects. The chief disappointment of An American Haunting is that it doesn't exploit more opportunities for the sublime subtlety of performances by Sissy Spacek and, especially, Donald Sutherland. show more

    Can\'t believe how stupid this movie is. Stupid script and stupider investors. Completely without an ounce of logic or reason. The people in the movie are completely useless and clearly too stupid to live. No wonder they are haunted. How dare the writer and creator and director take money for this crap.
