I saw the
Discovery Channel documentary on this
alleged "haunting" a few years ago, and it totally
creeped me out! I actually stopped watching it
half-way through and waited for my husband to come
home so we could finish it together. The image
of that demon on the stairs ... you just have to
view it to see what I mean.
If this movie is anything like the
documentary, it's going to be one scary movie.
Here is an
updated synopsis for “The Haunting in
Connecticut” by director Peter Cornwell.
Synopsis: Based on a chilling true story,
Lionsgate’s THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT charts one
family's terrifying, real-life encounter with the dark
forces of the supernatural. 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 powerful dark forces of the
supernatural, returns to unleash a new kind of horror on
the innocent and unsuspecting family.
The Haunting in Connecticut hits theaters March 27th.
