Date Set for The Haunting in Connecticut

The Haunting in Connecticut (click for larger image)There’s no doubt, fact can be far more startling than fiction, and who doesn’t love it when said fact is manipulated by Hollywood and turned into a big screen haunted house spooker?!?

Lionsgate announced today that director Peter Cornwell’s The Haunting in Connecticut will be hitting theatres June 19th, 2009. Yes it’s a ways off but at least we know it’s finally coming.

Based on true events that were the subject of a few books and TV specials I’ll let the official synopsis give you the skinny:

THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT tells the astounding true story of one family’s supernatural ordeal. When Sara and Peter Campbell’s son Matt is diagnosed with cancer, they uproot their family to Connecticut for his treatment. As the family settles into their new home, Matt grows increasingly disturbed by paranormal activity that seems to inhabit and possess the house. At a loss to help her frightened family, his mother turns to an enigmatic priest who appears 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.

Color me there. I just can’t resist ghost stories!
