Voltiando al terror…
Pues no habia entradas para SAW V. Solo conseguí en un megarincon del cine y no era la manera de ver esta pelicula. Asi que me quede viendo otras opciones. Termine viendo “An American Haunting” que para nuestros mercados latinos fue traducida como “Apariciones” (¡¡¡????).
La bruja de Bell (conocida asi por atacar la familia Bell de Tenessee entre 1.817 y 1.820) tuvo gran reconocimiento en su tiempo. Ha sido la fuente de estudio de muchos libros y se comenta que también ha servido de inspiración de peliculas como “The Blair Witch Project”. Su fama es ta en el floklore popular del Missisippi que muchos investigadores aseguran que el mismisimo General Andrew Jackson (septimo presidente de USA) presenció hechos paranormales al respecto.
En Internet se consiguen muchos sites con informacion de la investigacion paranormal, incluyendo los libros que han sido escritos hasta el momento. Es muchisima informacion proveniente muchas fuentes que es dificil recopilar sin sentir algo de miedo asi que solo me limitare a colocar un par de interesting facts.
Another instance; while the family and guests were at supper, the subject of a wedding that was to take place at that hour came up. Father stated the names of the contracting parties, which I have forgotten, but remember the circumstance very distinctly, as it impressed me at the time. However, some one remarked that the hour for the marriage had about passed, and the parties were no doubt then man and wife. Another remarked that Rev. Gunn performed the ceremony. The witch then spoke, exclaiming, “No, he did not marry them.” “Yes, but you are mistaken this time,” replied one. “Brother Gunn was engaged to tie the knot, and he never fails.” “He failed this time,” returned the witch. “Brother Gunn was taken very sick and could not go, and the wedding was about to be a failure, but they sent off for Squire Byrns and he married them.” No one present believed it possible for the witch to know the facts so soon, but this was ascertained on the following day to be the truth of the case in every particular. Regarding the authorship of these very singular exhibitions, father thought it absurd to charge it to any of the Bell family. They were the sufferers, and suffered greatly; moreover, they were every one afraid of it; that was clear to any observer. He was there one night when several strangers rode up and halloed ever so long, and not one of the family could be induced to go out, because they were afraid, and he got out of bed, dressed, and went out himself.
