An American Haunting Opens Wide: Friday, May 5 Think "The Antebellum Exorcism of Emily Rose." "An American Haunting" is based on the only known case in which official records credit a supernatural force with causing the death of a human being. Set in 1817 Tennessee, the film features Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek as responsible landowners whose daughter ("Peter Pan" star Rachel Hurd-Wood, who we're really trying not to confuse with Evan Rachel Wood) begins to experience some demonic possession, and not the fun kind. Do expect plenty of weird imagery, things that go bump in the night and all sorts of inside jokes about President James Monroe. Don't expect the marketing on this one to make a big deal about the fact that director Courtney Solomon's last film was "Dungeons & Dragons." Read Zap2it's Review
