Connecticut’s First Haunting

Someone has been doodling!Where have all the good haunted house movies gone to? The Messengers was tame and full of holes; The Grudge was meh and I honestly cannot remember the last time residential ghosts gave me the shivers. It’s not that some of us horror junkies have become desensitized … there’s just nothing good in the past year or two.

Thank Buddha’s shaved round thingies Fangoria has the first pictures and a set report for the Peter Cornwell directed The Haunting in Connecticut. The film is based off of a true story, and please … PLEASE don’t let this one be a total let down like American Haunting. ::shudder::

The story involves a cancer suffering teen and his family moving to Connecticut so the parents may retain the services of the same doctor who was previously treating him. The out-of-towners soon realize that their new home is not just some old house but was once a mortuary, and the dead aren’t resting in peace.

Lionsgate has ahold of this movie, and we should be seeing it sometime in 2008. With a cast including Virginia Madsen and Elias Koteas, we should keep pretty high expectation that this won’t be another ho-hum haunted house flick.

    I was going to mention something about the Discovery Channel version. It was pretty scary, and the story was great. I hope it’s a good film for what Discovery made it.

    I think it was the Discover channel that did a one-hour show on this particular haunting. And it was scary…even for the Discover channel. This is a GREAT story for a movie…as long as they don’t screw it up and water it down to a PG rating.
