The Haunting in Connecticut (2009)
Director: Peter Cornwell
Main Stars: Virginia Madsen, Martin Donovan, Elias Kotea, Amanda Crew, Sophi Knight, Kyle Gallner
Storyline: A family move to due to their son’s health and they move into a disturbing haunted area.
Review (Spoils): The Campbell family move due to the sickness of their son Matt (Kyle Gallner). They move into this charming Victorian home that was once a funeral parlor. They make a rash decision and rent the place because it is closer to his treatment center. After the first night of being there the presence of others can be felt within the house.
We have dark shadows, some disturbing black and white pictures, and visions of dead people, burning hands, family conflict, skin carvings, eyelids and some good old fashion cult fun!
Rating: This film is kind of like a more modern day Amityville Horror film. It’s your typical haunting films with some of the normal scares like bodies behind people and mirrors. Some story as other horror films of this nature as it is supposed to be based on a true event but really think about it… way to many clichés. But for it times the movie is not horrible.
