Haunting in Connecticut was actually a pretty decent horror movie. It had a good plot and enough spooks and scares to keep me intrigued. Does that mean it garner a sequel? Not really, but it’s Hollywood and if a movie makes any money at all it pretty much means that they will make the franchise until it dies. Especially horror.
Below is a synopsis and trailer for A Haunting in Connecticut: Ghosts of Georgia that takes the series from New England to Georgia? Yeah, I’m not really sure how that works but I know I’ll end up seeing this film despite the ridiculous plot.
Here’s the official synopsis:
A young family is tormented by the horrors of the past in The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, a chilling new film based on a true story from the producers of The Haunting in Connecticut.
Building on the terror of A Haunting in Connecticut, this horrifying tale traces a young family’s nightmarish descent into a centuries-old Southern hell. When Andy Wyrick (Chad Michael Murray, House of Wax) moves his wife Lisa (Abigail Spencer, TV’s Mad Men) and daughter Heidi to an historic home in Georgia, they quickly discover they are not the house’s only inhabitants. Joined by Lisa’s free-spirited sister, Joyce (Katee Sackhoff, TV’s Battlestar Galactica), the family soon comes face-to-face with a bone-chilling mystery born of a deranged desire…a haunting secret rising from underground and threatening to bring down anyone in its path.
The film is set to open in a limited theatrical release and VOD on February 1, 2013.
