The Haunting in Connecticut was a great big pile crap. Plain and simple. The “scares” were dreadfully obvious, poorly staged, and the whole story was dumber than a sack of hammers to begin with.
Of course it made a bunch of money, and now those bastards at Gold Circle Films want to bring us another one: The Haunting in Georgia.
It’s the same story of a family who move into a house that’s haunted by piss-poor ghosts, only to discover there’s a “secret” attached to the place. Hollywood Reporter claims Chad Michael Murray, Abigail Spencer, Katee Sackhoff and Emily Alyn Lind have all signed on to be the family tormented by the spirits, and if that cast doesn’t get you excited I don’t know what will.
The synopsis from Gold Circle:
“Shortly after moving into their ideal new home, a couple grows concerned when their young daughter begins encountering mysterious strangers that no one else can see. The couple’s greatest fear is realized when they themselves begin to witness terrifying phenomena in and around the house, providing clues that could unlock a chilling mystery that has remained a closely guarded secret for generations.“
Filming begins later this month with director Tom Elkins in Baton Rouge, which is definitely not in Georgia. Plus, a third entry is already in the works (The Haunting in New York)…
