70's or 80's movie where a young girl (colonial era I believe) falls into a hole or well under a house. Anyway, the story is actually set in the 1980's and she is reincarnated and is somehow adapted/ supported by her relatives (no one knows tho). Towards the end of the movie, she is running and almost falls in the same hole/well but this time is saved somehow. All of the people see the remains of her previous skeleton. I know it sounds weird but I remember seeing this movie as a kid in the early 80's and it scaring me. I'm pretty sure it was on HBO a few times.
I doubt that this is your movie ... but .... in the movie The Ring, the girl Samara fell into a hole (an abandoned well) many years ago; but her skeleton remained in the hole where the abandoned well used to be. When people play a cursed video tape of the skeletal corpse climbing from the well, Samara's ghost is reincarnated and haunts the unlucky victims, who are cursed to die in 7 days.
Watcher in the Woods, maybe?
