The Haunting in Connecticut

Some things cannot be explained.


The Haunting in Connecticut
A young boy is being treated for cancer. Mom has to drive him many miles for each treatment, so they decide to move closer to the hospital, and buy an old house which seems perfect ... except for its ''history''. The cancer patient soon starts seeing things, but mom writes it off as a side effect of the treatment. A fellow patient, who happens to be a priest, suspects something else, and so they start investigating ... and the closer they get to the truth, the closer the truth gets to them...

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconSo. A preposterous story, so many scares they threaten to grow monotonous, good acting and filmmaking credits and what else? Oh, what's with the ectoplasm? Didn't Houdini unmask that as a fraud? And didn't the Amazing Randi? And what's it doing still being treated as real in the true story?

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconMatters culminate in a climactic sequence so brazenly schlocky the movie should be followed by an apology from Count Floyd.
5
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconIt's just more of the same old, same old haunted house style material, botched by ham-fisted direction, bad/uneven pacing, and far too many flashbacks to explain the genesis of all that goes bump in the night.

Tomatometer quote iconThough it features a few scares and some creepy atmosphere, The Haunting in Connecticut ultimately relies too much on familiar horror cliches to achieve its goals.
