Overview

Inspired by the frightening true-life tale of a family that moved into a converted funeral home and subsequently fell under supernatural attack, director Peter Cornwell's The Haunting in Connecticut follows the quest of a desperate mother to free her family from the grip of an evil beyond human comprehension. Sara Virginia Madsen and Peter Campbell Martin Donovan have just moved to Connecticut with their young son, Matt, when the young boy experiences a series of disturbing events that lead him to believe a malevolent force is attempting to take control of his family. Back when the home was still a funeral parlor, the original owner's clairvoyant assistant, Jonah, served as a gateway for restless spirits seeking to cross over into the physical realm. When Jonah returns to unleash a new kind of horror on the innocent family, Sara enlists the aid of enigmatic priest Popescu Elias Koteas in driving the evil out before it consumes her son's body and soul. At first it appears that Popescu has been successful in driving the spirits away, but then the terror becomes more intense than ever before.

    This was a great movie!

    Although it wasn't as scary as i had expected it to be, this movie was still great. It wasn't a stupid slasher movie, it was very complex and unlike most scary movies, it had a meaning. I would recomend this movie to any lover of scary/thriller movies, or just movies that make you think.

    The Haunting in Connecticut: Best Movie Ever!!!!!!!!!

    I love this movies so much I must have watched over more than 50 times!!!!!! This movie is really great!!! The actors are amazing too!!! Well, the movie is about a boy named Matt Campbell who has cancer. His mother decides it`s a great idea to move to a house that`s closer to the hospital that Matt goes to because it`s a very long drive plus they have to stop a couple of times for Matt to vomit. The only problem is that the house used to be a funeral home. And when they move in Matt starts to see things that he dismisses becuse of the medications he is taking and if he is seeing things the doctor will take him off the treatment.He starts to see this boy named Jonah which used to be a medium at the Aickman Funeral home. Jonah pays frequent visits to Matt and becuase of these visits his family is getting worried he doesn`t have the right "attiude" for the treatment.I won`t tell you more beacuse you should see the movie :)The end is so good too! I assure you that this movie IS NOT SCARY AT ALL!

    This One Will Leave You Pretty Wigged Out.

    Horror is not my favorite genre, but I do still enjoy a lot of them. I just saw this one for the first time and thought it was actually pretty good. Some people I know thought it was only "okay" but I thought it was just a little better than that, though not excellent. This movie left me pretty wigged out afterward, and any horror movie that leaves me wigged out is usually a pretty good movie in my opinion. Some of this was rather freaky, indeed. There are a couple of things that pop out at you in it, but most of it is psychological more than anything, after some of the things you see. I think the actors did a superb job, though not quite Oscar performances. It was cool seeing Elias Koteas in this, who I will always know as Casey Jones, from the 1st and 3rd Ninja Turtle movies. Hehe...classic! Overall though, if you like horror films, or ghost/haunting films alone for that matter, and like being a little wigged out, I would recommend buying this movie, or at the very least, renting it and giving it a watch.

    A Haunting in Connecticut

    O.K. well if you hate scary movies like me you will probally be covering your eyes half of the time. But if you like scary movies and arn't very affraid of them you probaly won't be very freaked out at all.
    I think this movie tied together pretty well in end.
    I would give it a chance and watch it though.
