The Haunting in Connecticut

The Haunting in Connecticut tells the creepy story of one family's supernatural ordeal in a house with a mysterious past.

Sara (Virginia Madsen) and Peter (Martin Donovan) Campbell's son Matt (Kyle Gallner) is diagnosed with cancer.  To get closer to the hospital where he is being treated, they move to Connecticut.

While adjusting to their new home, Matt experiences disturbing paranormal activity, particularly in the basement.  The family begins experiencing violent, supernatural events that the parents first blame on stress from the illness, but they later discover that their new home has a dark secret.

The family turns to Reverend Nicholas Popescu (Elias Koteas) who attempts to rid the house of its ghosts-- until the boy's condition takes a sudden and unexplained turn for the worse and their lives are put in grave danger.

I saw the Discovery Channel documentary on this alleged "haunting" a few years ago, and it totally creeped me out!  I actually stopped watching it half-way through and waited for my husband to come home so we could finish it together.  The image of that demon on the stairs ... you just have to view it to see what I mean.

If this movie is anything like the documentary, it's going to be one scary movie. 




Here is an updated synopsis for “The Haunting in Connecticut” by director Peter Cornwell.

Synopsis: Based on a chilling true story, Lionsgate’s 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 powerful dark forces of the supernatural, returns to unleash a new kind of horror on the innocent and unsuspecting family.

The Haunting in Connecticut hits theaters March 27th.
