Haunting In Georgia Scares Up A Trailer
Get ready for a lynchin'

Back in 2009, psychological horror Haunting In Connecticut didn't set the world alight, but it was a reasonable enough ghost story and did enough business to make a sequel worth investigating. Opting for an anthology approach, the next entry in the nascent series was announced last year as The Haunting In Georgia, and here's the trailer and a poster.

Except... Apparently we're no longer to call it The Haunting In Georgia: it's now The Haunting In Connecticut 2: Ghosts Of Georgia, just to make sure you get the connection with the first one. This despite the fact that Georgia and Connecticut are several states apart. Those marketing folks, eh? If you didn't laugh, you'd cry.

Understandably, given the location, this instalment's aiming for the Southern Gothic vibe, with a story - once again supposedly true - based around Georgia's slavery-heavy history, and the "stationmasters" who saved lives by helping slaves escape.

Potentially quite rich material if handled right then, although the modern-day part of the story, of course, involves a family moving into a new house, and a child that can see dead people. The poster meanwhile, seems to be channeling The Last Exorcism.

Tom Elkins, editor of Connecticut, is the director of Georgia, and the cast is a TV roster comprising Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill), Abigail Spencer (Mad Men, although she's since been in Cowboys & Aliens and Oz: The Great And Powerful), and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica's Starbuck). A mid-level horror sequel is kind of coming full circle for Sackhoff, since pre-BSG her most visible role was in Halloween: Resurrection, where we got to see her severed head roll down the stairs. Hopefully she'll come out of this one intact.

The Haunting In Connecticut 2: Ghosts Of Georgia is out in the US on February 1. We don't have a date in the UK yet. If all goes to plan, the series' next haunting will be in New York.

RE: Stop!
That, or horror fans can continue to watch horror and you can ignore it and watch stuff that you like. Y'know, just a thought like. And Scream ain't all that. More

Stop!
please just stop now, enoughs enough, thank you. Time for a horror shut down like we had in the late 80's. then a scream like movie can bring us back in 10 years time when it might feel fresh again. More
