Product Description

Supernatural horror. The Campbell family are forced to move to upstate Connecticut in order to be near the clinic where their teenage son Matt (Kyle Gallner) is being treated for cancer. When they begin experiencing disturbing events, the Campbells attribute them to their stress over Matt's illness - but they soon discover that their picturesque Victorian home has a dark and disturbing history, and that an unspeakable terror awaits them...

There sure aren't any plot surprises in this been-there, done-that haunted house thriller. Having said that, the jumps are done effectively enough, and in a dark room with surround sound and a big screen, I found it certainly creepy enough.
Plot-wise.. a family have to move into a house, for their cancer stricken son to be near the hospital where he is being treated. However, it is an ex funeral home, and their son starts to see things... So far, so Amityville. The cast are given just enough fleshing out to be interesting, and if there is something routine about the story, there is also something satisfying about old fashioned shocks instead of non-stop torture as seems to now be de rigeur in horror movies. There is a fair bit of cheap shocks using flash-cuts accompanied by dramatic chords, but for the most part this has been fairly well crafted with a decent score, served well by the blu-ray format. It just won't win any awards for originality. The `based-on-a-true-story' tag is given some credence by an interesting documentary accompanying the movie, which interviews most of the people portrayed in the movie. Interesting, because it is not one sided, showing enough naysayers to leave you genually wondering what was true and what was not.
In short, unoriginal, but old-fashioned and effective.

Seeing the trailer of The Haunting in Connecticut promised to be a truely terrifiying experenice, it had to be seen to be believed so I rented it and watched it last night (not alone, thank goodness!). Based on real events, a young family moves in a house near to the hosptail so they can take their sick son to have treatment there. But he soon sees things he shouldn't see, haunting figures and horrifying actions, at first his family dosen't believe him until the house truely delivers it's shocking secrets. This film is very creppy, the scares are constant and make you jump in places. The disturbing images are frighting to see, I warn you now put something nice and funny on afterwards as it could lead to nightmares. I didn't really know the cast but they proivded good enough pefomances for you to feel sorry for and root for them to be saved from the evil within. I highly recommened this horror to be watched on Blu-Ray, the sound is awesome especially a tense worthy scene. Worth seeing for a Saturday or Sunday night entertainment.

By Marcia TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 2 Mar. 2011
Format: DVD
The Haunting in Connecticut is a film that has a lot of elements that have all been explored before in countless other horror films. But despite its familiar themes it has a unique perspective that gives it a great credibility as a film.
This film is very well produced and directed. It has a chilling and disturbing quality.
There are many things in the film that have all been done before, but the thing that sets this film apart from the other films is that it is supposed to be based on true events. I think the key here is that it is "based on" rather than any exact account of the events. If the events depicted in the film actually happened then it is a chilling account of that story. And if it is all a lie or a part truth then it still is interesting to see a creepy story from non professional story writers.
I feel that the basic story is more than likely true in so much that the people involved actually believe that they lived in a haunted house with a lot of disturbing things going on. I also suspect that there is a bit of added sensationalist exaggeration going on in the form of artistic licence to amplify the shocks and to push the film script in line with other horror films.
I found this to be an interesting and worth while film release and the DVD has some interesting bonus features that make the whole package a good product.
The bonus features include a two part documentary about the real events as told by the real people that claim that this is a true story. Also there is a "making of" feature and a documentary about the history of post-mortem photography. There is another feature about the view point of a psychic and there is also some deleted scenes.
For a horror film with a twist this is a good film and is easily worth seeing.

A master piece in the making and with everything coming and going makes it marvellous, An ex funeral home a force to be reckoned with that crosses over through a demonic boy who's mother was a clairvoyant who owned the place. What more can you ask for based on a real life situation with a family being tormented out of their minds, sounds great and interesting. I would hate to be there and feel sorry for the family in all, this story is about their life there and what they endured. So I rated this an A grade plus for the movie and sharing their experiences with us, now it's time for the munchies and movie so get a move on so that you can try to settle down for the night warm and cosy with a terrific show that will blast you away. Enjoy!

I have to admit when i first seen this film i didn't think it was that good, and at the time i remember giving it 2.5/5, but when i borrowed it to my mum she told me she loved it, and pecked my head(like mothers do) to watch it again, and WOW! this film was beautiful.

Am not sure what happened the first time round, maybe my mind was somewhere else, but this film just blew me away, and the last twenty minutes was just stunning, with a beautiful soundtrack. Just one word of advice always listen to your mum, am glad i did.
