The Haunting in Connecticut

The Haunting in Connecticut-2009, starring Virginia Madsen and Amanda Crew

He says-  Creaky horror picture show, purportedly based on fact, about a family that learns the hard way why they got such a great deal on a rental property with "a bit of history."  Long on spooky atmosphere, short on drama.  There's nothing here you haven't seen done better, and scarier, in other haunted house dramas.  1 and a half stars.

I say- Did this really need to be made?  Apparently it was based on a Discovery Channel special.  They then decided to add effects, add professional actors, and make it seem as though this was entirely true.  That said, I have not seen the Discovery Channel special on this house.  I felt that I had seen this movie a million times, and that the number one scare tactic in this movie was the use of loud trumpets.  BOMB
