NEWPORT THEATRE GUILD SPONSORS NOV. 2 SHOWING OF
BELL WITCH: THE MOVIE Movie to Play at Newport Cinema 4
*****(TN) – The Newport Theatre Guild is proud to sponsor two showings of the feature film “BELL WITCH: The Movie,” on November 2, 2013 at 7:15pm and 9:40pm at Newport Cinema 4 Theater.
This special Halloween weekend showing will also offer opportunities to meet and greet some of the film’s stars, cast and crew, including co-writer and director S. Shane Marr and special guest Tennessee Highway Patrol Sergeant Lowell Russell, who was in the movie’s opening scene. Donna Pearson (Lucy Bell) Ken Porter (Deacon) and Phil Campbell (Star of Hee Haw, TNN’s Club Dance and Archie Campbell’s son) will host the event.
“BELL WITCH: The Movie” was shot entirely on location in East Tennessee and closely follows the historically documented legend of the Bell Witch of Adams, Tennessee. This feature film combines a chilling soundtrack of original and traditional Bluegrass and Americana songs with sweeping scenic Smoky Mountain images to create the perfect backdrop for this old-fashioned thriller.
“With a proliferation of ‘slasher’ films filled with sex, violence and vulgar language, it’s becoming harder than ever to find movies that are appropriate for families while still providing suspense and fright,” says director S. Shane Marr. “We wanted to make a movie that told the terrifying and true story of the Bell Witch but still remained appropriate for the widest variety of viewers.”
Executive producer Doris Ogle Marr echoes that saying, “‘BELL WITCH: The Movie’ has skipped the usual use of pervasive curse words, gratuitous sex and graphic violence and has still managed to ‘scare’ viewers.” She adds, “It’s very much a Hitchcock style of storytelling. The more you think about it, the scarier it is.”
In addition to heavy suspense and bump-in-the-night scares, “BELL WITCH: The Movie” also features a classic actress in the lead role. Betsy Palmer, best known among scary movie fans as Mrs. Voorhees on the original “Friday the 13th” motion picture, plays the voice of the Bell Witch.
A movie trailer and behind-the-scenes footage can be seen atwww.bellwitchmovie.com.
The Newport Theatre Guild was established to create a complete cultural arts organization in Cocke County to foster interest and participation in creative expression and to encourage the people of our region to explore their own culture and find the art within themselves to express that culture.

WALTER STATE COMMUNITY COLLEGE TO OFFER SECOND ANNUAL SHOWING OF BELL WITCH THE MOVIE Oct 17, 2009
***** Sevierville (TN) – After last October’s successful showing of “BELL WITCH: The Movie” at Walters State Community College, the family-friendly horror movie is once again scheduled for this October in what is becoming an autumn tradition. The free showing of “BELL WITCH: The Movie” will take place at 7pm on October 17 in the theater of the Judge William H. Inman Humanities Complex on the Morristown campus.
In addition to seeing the full motion picture, attendees will also have an opportunity to meet stars from the motion picture including Bev Jones (Kate Batts), Emily Brobst (The Specter) and Donna Pearson (Mrs. Bell).In addition, the motion picture’s co-writer and director S. Shane Marr will be on hand as well as Dr. Larry Clifton, a consultant on the movie who also teaches film classes at Walters State Community College.
BELL WITCH: The Movie is based on a Tennessee legend about a historic haunting in Adams, Tennessee just north of Nashville. Co-writer and director S. Shane Marr says he focused on staying true to the legend and really playing the legend out as a family-friendly horror movie. “I tried really hard to use an older style of movie-making with a focus on suspense instead of ‘slasher’ techniques. I like to say that the result is Poltergeist meets Little House on the Prairie.”
In addition to heavy suspense and old-fashioned scares, BELL WITCH: The Movie also features a classic actress in the lead role. Betsy Palmer, best known among scary movie fans as Mrs. Voorhees on the original Friday the 13th, plays the voice of The Bell Witch.
The movie was recently released on DVD in America and is currently being shown as a feature film in the United Kingdom. While this marks the East Tennessee premiere, dress is casual; no red carpet activities are planned. For more information about the viewing, call the college’s Division of Humanities at (423) 585-6922.
WALTER STATE PRESS RELEASE OCT 17, 2009 SHOWING OF BELL WITCH THE MOVIE -OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
***** The Bell Witch is making an encore appearance at Walters State’s Morristown campus.
“The Bell Witch: The Movie” will be shown at Walters State Community College at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17, in the theatre of the Judge William H. Inman Humanities Complex on the Morristown campus. Admission is free.
The movie made its East Tennessee appearance to a standing-room-only crowd last year at Walters State.
Director S. Shane Marr and Dr. Larry Clifton, assistant professor of speech communications, will be on hand to answer questions. Clifton served as a consultant on the movie and teaches film courses at the college.
The movie is based on a true story that has captured the attention of ghost hunters for more than a century: the Bell Witch of Tennessee. The ghost tortured the Bell family of Adams County for a generation. Family members even blamed the Bell Witch for the death of family patriarch John Bell. She supposedly poisoned him.
The movie was recently released on DVD in America and is showing as a feature film in the U.K. “The Bell Witch: The Movie” was produced by Cinemarr Entertainment of Sevierville. The movie was filmed in parts of Sevier County and in Adams County. More than 300 cast and crew people were involved in the production.
During the early 19th century, the Bell Witch first appeared as a strange beast or a ghostly figure. She eventually began making noises and speaking, even dictating family decisions. Daughter Betsy broke off an engagement because of a barrage of attacks from the spirit. At her last appearance, she promised to visit John Bell’s most direct living descendent in 107 years.As the movie’s marketing materials claim, “she’s way overdue.”
“We were able to find quite a bit of documentation to support the legend,” said Clifton, who helped with research, writing and promotion of the film.
“Andrew Jackson was even scared of this ghost. There are so many books and documents that refer to the Bell Witch. This movie follows those details.”
To scare fans, the movie relies more on suspense than the violence that is part of many horror films.
“With a proliferation of ‘slasher’ films filled with sex, violence and vulgar language, it’s becoming harder than ever to find movies that are appropriate for families. We wanted to make a movie that told this terrifying and true story that was appropriate for the widest variety of viewers,” said Marr.
While the Bell witch isn’t seen in the movie, she is heard. The voice is Betsy Palmer, who established herself as a horror film icon when she played Jason’s mother in the original Friday the 13th movies
Legend holds that the Bell Witch is the spirit of Kate Banks, who felt she was cheated out of land by Bell. Banks is seen early in the movie and is played by local actress Beverly Johnson. Johnson is also planning to attend the Walters State screening.
Clifton spent time filming in Adams County on sites near the property that was haunted. So, does he believe in the Bell Witch?
“I would not want to be on that property after dark,” is his simple answer. While this marks the East Tennessee premiere, dress is casual; no red carpet activities are planned. For more information about the viewing, call the college’s Division of Humanities at (423) 585-6922.

I received my copy and watched it last night. Thank you so very much. I eagerly waited 3 years for this film to come out. The picture was chrystal clear and the sound a outstanding. It was really nice to see a horror movie that's safe for the whole family to enjoy. No language, no nudity, etc....It was very well done. It's already perfect for TV broadcast....They wouldn't have to edit-out not one thing! The story was well written and well acted-out, and it was much better than the Donald Sutherland movie "An American Haunting"! The Bell Witch Lives! (Thanks to you guys). Have a good one.

*****The DVD looks great! Awesome sound track and visual FX. Congratulations.

FAMILY FRIENDLY & FRIGHTENING?
BELL WITCH: The Movie Combines Both
That’s Perfect for Families
Burbank, CA - Big River Pictures LLC, in association with Cinemarr Entertainment and Digital Films Distribution, announce the official release of the long awaited BELL WITCH: The Movie, a family-friendly movie that scares up thrills for the family.
The motion picture, which was shot and mastered in High Definition, stars Betsy Palmer (Friday the 13th) as the voice of the Bell Witch.
Closely following the historically documented legend of The Bell Witch of Adams, Tennessee, BELL WITCH: The Movie combines a chilling soundtrack of original and traditional Bluegrass and Americana songs with sweeping, scenic images to create an eerie backdrop for this 200 year-old legend.
The motion picture is described as a love story turned tragic when entangled with the legendary haunting of the Bell Witch. After stumbling across an ancient burial (in what is now known as the Bell Witch cave), brothers John Jr. and Williams Bell bring a strange curse home to their family causing their father, John, and sister, Betsy, to experience phantom attacks in the night and strange visions in the day. Nothing enrages the spirit of the Bell Witch more than Betsy’s relationship with her loving fiancé, Joshua Gardner. Their only hope of escaping the witch’s torment is death…a fate the Bell Witch is more than happy to deliver.
“With a proliferation of ‘slasher’ films filled with sex, violence and vulgar language, it’s becoming harder than ever to find movies that are appropriate for families while still providing suspense and fright,” says Director / Producer S. Shane Marr. “We wanted to make a movie that told the terrifying and true story of The Bell Witch and that stayed appropriate for the widest variety of viewers.”

The more you think about it, the scarier it is.”
