The Haunting In Connecticut (2009)

Director: Peter Cornwell
Starring: Virginia Madsen, Martin Donovan, Elias Koteas
Budget: $10m
Box Office: $56m

Plot: Supposedly based on a true story (they often are), this haunted house chiller sees a family moving into a rental property in order to be nearer the hospital where their son Matthew (Kyle Gallner) is undergoing treatment for cancer. There’s some suggestion that his illness is causing him to hallucinate, until others start sharing his paranormal experiences and he starts spewing ectoplasm in plain sight. It’s unremarkable, but spooky enough, and has some caustically critical things to say about the American health system, all sly-like.

The Haunting In Connecticut 2: Ghosts Of Georgia (2013)

Director: Tom Elkins
Starring: Abigail Spencer, Katee Sackhoff, Chad Michael Murray

Plot: The marketing mentalists strike again. Faced with a hit that they’d like to franchise, studio Gold Circle Films hit on the not-too-shabby idea of an anthology series dealing with unconnected hauntings in different states, and announced The Haunting In Georgia and The Haunting In New York. So far so good, until the apparent realisations that a) perhaps nobody would realise it was a series, and b) anybody could make a ‘Haunting In…’ movie and it’d be unclear which were the official ones. Hence the adding of the Connecticut brand name to the Georgia film, despite their being several states apart. If you didn’t laugh, you’d cry.

You've obviously never been tortured... not that I have but I can imagine it would be more painful than clicking a button. More

23 Why the clicking?
Why do you think people will click through 40 pages loading? It would be much less annoying to have it as a scrolled list down a few pages. Gave up clicking at 11. Torturous. More
