Lionsgate just sent over the first poster for The Haunting in Connecticut, the upcoming film that’s supposedly based on a real story.
Shouldn’t be any questions about what to expect from that one, right? The name and poster says it all, it’s the almighty demoni possession/ poltergeist film. Indeed, the synopsis further pushes through the point of what subgenre it is.
In the tradition of such real-life horror movies as ‘The Exorcist’ and ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose’, 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.
The film stars Virginia “I was awesome in The Prophecy” Madsen and Elias Koteas, and is set for release… well, sometime next year. It sure has been in production for a long time- we first reported on it almost 3 years ago (in an early, embarrassing CC article). But there’s always room inside you for more possession films.
