About the Movie
Based on a chilling true story, THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT charts one family's terrifying, real-life encounter with the dark forces of the supernatural. When the Campbell family moves to upstate Connecticut, they soon learn that their charming Victorian home has a disturbing history: not only was the house a transformed funeral parlor where inconceivable acts occurred, but the owner's clairvoyant son Jonah served as a demonic messenger, providing a gateway for spiritual entities to crossover. Now, unspeakable terror awaits when Jonah, the boy who communicated with the dead, returns to unleash a new kind of horror on the innocent and unsuspecting family.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Gives you the creeps, the giggles and the groans in almost equal measure.
Rotten: Madsen barely emotes during the ensuing flood of hokey scare tactics.
Rotten: What started out reasonably scary, if derivative, just drags on and becomes silly.
Rotten: Haunting suffers for its need to be sold as a straight-up horror film, and the fact it has been seemingly retrofitted as such.
Ignore the haters, "Haunting" is a winner.
Belying the controversial and gimicky poster, "Haunting in CT" is a top notch, character driven thriller with a powerful dramatic throughline. Going in with low exepctations, I was genuinely taken aback at how good this movie was. It is undoubtedly one of the best supernatural thrillers in YEARS and evokes memories of classics like Poltergeist and Robert Wise's original "The Haunting". Blood loving, hack 'em slash 'em fan boys will likely pan the film for the low body count and slow burn but discriminating audiences will appreciate the character development and suspense. Even if you don't normally spark to horror films I reccomend checking this one out. It's a welcome addition a genre that's been lacking and quite possibly, a classic.
Pretty good film
It is a good film to watch and it is very interesting, but the best version is the one from the Discovery channel. I only say that because it is very accurate and the film adds more for the sake of the film. There are some aspects of it that reminds me of Amityville Horror, but this is better. The acting is good and they did a great job of telling part of the real story.
