A&E NETWORK PRESENTS ‘CURSED: THE BELL WITCH’
FOLLOWING ONE MAN’S QUEST TO REVEAL A LEGENDARY AND DEADLY CURSE THAT HAS PLAGUED HIS FAMILY FOR GENERATIONS
BEFORE IT REACHES HIS ONLY SON
NEW SERIES PREMIERES MONDAY, OCTOBER 26 AT 10PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 12, 2015 – A&E Network presents a new original series following the personal journey of John Ceallach, a direct descendant of the Bell Witch curse; one of the oldest and most legendary ghost stories in America. Ceallach believes that this curse has befallen several generations of his family and he is on the hunt to reverse it before it reaches his only son. “Cursed: The Bell Witch” premieres Monday, October 26 at 10PM ET/PT on A&E.
Legend has it that in the early 1800s, a Tennessee landowner named John Bell had a child out of wedlock with a local witch named Kate Batts. To cover his tracks, it is believed he murdered her and in turn she cursed his family bloodline from her grave; the first-born male of each generation would either be driven insane or suffer a mysterious, untimely death. Since then, five Bell men are reported to have suffered this fate and today, John Ceallach, a direct descendent of John Bell, finds that his 14-year-old son could be next in line.
Ceallach and his best friend Chad Higgenbotham, both armed with expert military experience, will embark on a haunted investigation as they enlist the help of psychics, shamans, paranormal investigators and demonologists to get to the bottom of the curse that has plagued John’s family for generations. In the end, they hope to find the origin of the curse and the closure needed for this long-standing spell to be broken.

You don’t know anything about the Bell Witch. The writing for this show is awful. Honey Boo Boo is a better actress. I am writing a book about the truth. I am direct descendant of Kates brother John. What I am writing is hotter than 50 shades of Grey. Publishers are seeking me out. You wish you had a writer as hot as me. How long can you last? You went up against Monday night football. My family watched the game. Only 8 people living in Adams watched the show. The clock is ticking tic toc tic toc. Yep your… Read more »
