The Haunting in Connecticut

As followers of Tech-MBA have realized, I have been watching a lot of movies lately. My latest trip to the theater dropped down a notch. I had a choice between Fast and Furious and The Haunting in Connecticut (Haunting). I decided on the horror movie as I wasn’t in the mood for a loud action flick.

As it turned out, Haunting had quite the soundtrack and had me jumping out of my seat a little bit. The premise of the movie has been overdone, but the movie itself was entertaining. It is loosely based on a “true story.” A family ends up renting a house in Connecticut that has a history (as a closed down funeral home). The price is right, but the home’s history starts to present itself to the various family members.

For those interested in the paranormal, the homes history for séances will prove intriguing. Other than that there is not much more than weird goings on for a dysfunctional family struggling to function with an alcoholic father, a child with cancer and having two nieces living with them. I would not recommend this film, unless you are looking for a suspenseful horror film that is more creepy than blood and guts.
