Movie Preview: The Haunting in Connecticut

This movie doesn't open until sometime next year, but someone must have wanted to take advantage of the Halloween spirit by releasing the trailer for it now. The Haunting in Connecticut is a based-on-real-events movie in which a family moves to a spooky old home, only to be haunted by the terrible things that happened there years ago. Turns out, their new home used to be a mortuary.

It does look frightening, though most of this comes from jump-scares and glimpses of things that look like they might be really gross, but you don't know for sure so your mind fills in the blanks with gross things anyway. It's too bad this isn't coming out for a while; I'd be all for making this a Halloween-time must-see.

Yeah, I've seen all the episodes of Discovery Channel's "Hauntings", including this one. I'm with Coco Chic. This is definitely a NetFlix-er, but it'll be interesting to see what other "things" they add to make the story scarier.

I completely believe in an after-life (thanks dad for giving me a book by the Warrens when I was only 10 and telling me about some of out families "experiences". Scared the sh*t out of me...) so there is no way I can watch this film. Bothers me far too much. However I'm glad to hear a film was made, I accidently let myself watch that Discovery Channel episode and the story is perfect for a film. Hopefully it is made well.

I saw this on the discovery channel too. What a freaky house! I'll probably Netflix this because I know the story.

Yes, the story was the subject of a Discovery Channel series. Same story, just as a feature film.

Wasn't this a show on the Discovery Channel? The sons make their basement into their bedrooms and then the older son is terrorized by the ghost of the man that died in the mortuary in the basement. The parents don't believe him until he starts acting weird.
