Storyline Heading
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 dead, returns to unleash a new kind of horror on the innocent and unsuspecting family.

Thriller Suspense - This is a supernatural horror film based on a true story. While there isn't much in the way of graphic gore, there are numerous intense scare sequence too intense for children. Fans of star Virginia Madsen should be pleased.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Boring and uninspired, this movie gives ghost stories a bad name. Director Peter Cornwell's film is so bankrupt when it comes to generating atmosphere and scares that an inordinate number of "boo!" moments are needed to keep viewers interested. It's hard to imagine ghost story fans being impressed by this, much less anyone who's not a card-carrying horror movie lover.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average "The Haunting in Connecticut" is a technically proficient horror movie and well acted. Every door, window, bedroom, hallway, staircase, basement area, attic and crawlspace is packed with Surprises, so that it's a rare event in the house that takes place normally. A preposterous story...

USA Today Full Review
Average The movie relies too heavily on sepia-toned, super-fast flashbacks. While some of these images are terrifying at first, the procession of lightning-quick edits is numbing. Over-the-top visuals assault the audience: Ectoplasmic blobs emanate from orifices, ghostly bodies sport scary calligraphy-style carvings and a monstrously charred guy makes repeated appearances. ...reasonably well-acted and offers a few certifiable jolts, feels awfully familiar. It might as well be Amityville.
