...An American Haunting (2005)

An American Haunting is a short movie based on a tall legend from the 1800s in which a spirit murders a man - the only time in U.S. history, according to the film, that this has happened. Well, that's not what I saw in the movie and the historical portion was bookend-ed by a ridiculous present day mirror because, from my perspective, the producers didn't think the movie-going public would be able to sympathize with someone from the 19th century. The movie was watchable and it wasn't boring but the ending was transparent and ultimately the whole was a lot less than the sum of it's parts.
