what parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia is a horror film that has nothing to do with 2009's The Haunting in Connecticut, other than the fact that they're both loosely based on "true stories." (In fact, this movie has nothing to do with Connecticut whatsoever.) It's low on gore, blood, and death, but there's lots of scary ghost imagery, including rotting faces, skeletons, and sudden jump-shocks. A small girl is in peril in a few scenes. Language is light, with a couple of uses of "s--t" and a few other words. Characters drink beer in a few scenes. Horror-crazy teens may want to see it, but it's unlikely to have much of a shelf life.
