THE MARK OF THE BELL WITCH Docudrama Reminds Us of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT (Trailer)
Releasing December 15th on VOD, The Mark of the Bell Witch is a docudrama that's a "dramatized retelling of the Bell Witche's reign of terror". Check out the trailer for yourself below!
Absolute Blair Witch vibes with a dash of Unsolved Mysteries re enactments and you've got yourself an interested party here! The film comes from documentarian Seth Breedlove of The Mothman Legacy. According to the press release, "The Mark of the Bell Witch is the first attempted documentary of the famed piece of Appalachian folklore. The story of the Bell family who encountered mysterious sounds in their home, eventually becoming a full-blown apparition who terrorized them for almost five years, is still taught in Tennessee schools today. Considered to be one of the only known cases of murder committed by a “ghost” in American history, the story of John Bell’s poisoning at the hands of the witch has been the subject of numerous television shows, books, songs, and even a horror film."
Ahem. Sorry about that. I was getting flashbacks from a few weeks back when we watched the entire Blair Witch filmography with our buddy Eric from Pretty Much It (Video below). Be sure to check out The Mark of the Bell Witch (which is actually NOT about J's marriage, surprisingly) on December 15th and subscribe to our newsletter below for more spooky news!
