Ghost story relies on creaky old clichs to generate scares.

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.

Audience Reviews

1 star

Sequel to The Haunting in Connecticut is yet another unimpressive, bland sequel that doesn't add anything new to the first film. The ideas here are strained, and it's just another one of those films that was made to make more money, without any concern of creating something truly terrifying and atmospheric. This is a forgettable film, one that has a poor cast of actors that really don't have any screen presence and seem bored in their parts. The film is dull and unimpressive. The film lacks depth, and the scares are nonexistent. There is no effort put into this film, and it's a shame because like the first one, this film had the opportunity of being a very good film, instead it wastes its potential on cheap scares that don't work whatsoever. This film is awful, and it is a lacking film in terms of horror material, and it just threads old ideas that we've seen many times before. Like Its predecessor, this film just doesn't have the goods to really be a great horror film. Don't go into this film expecting anything great, it's a waste of time. The film is just garbage, the sheer lack of creativity is apparent throughout, and overall it's a prime example of how not to make a horror sequel. I really don't know why they made a follow up, it was unnecessary as the first film was forgettable. This follow up is just boring and uninteresting, if you've seen the original, then skip this one as it never is anything truly engaging or memorable for that matter. In fact, this is lazy filmmaking, and the filmmakers clearly can't make something to really capture the viewer's interest, and the filmmakers rely too much on predictability and old ideas that makes this film pretty bad.
