The Bell Witch
The basis for the Bell Witch Haunting and fictional Blair Witch Project, the Bell Witch is believed to have haunted the Tennessee home of the Bells in the early 1800s. The angry spirit pulled the sheets off of the sleeping Bell children, whispered hymns in their ears, and slapped every family member. The ghost tormented one of the Bell daughters and her fiance until their engagement was broken off. Today, people still report evidence of the ghost around the property's farmhouse.
