Review of film: “THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT” = Think TWICE before you agree to buy a House!

Review of film:  THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT  = Think TWICE before you agree to buy a House!  =

                                      Rating: a mild 7.5 of 10 stars.

Per an advance preview:) This based-on-a-true-story film is set in 1987 & relates how a mother (VIRGINIA MADSEN) agrees to buy an old house (oddly enough, in CT) to allow their ill son Matt (KYLE GALLNER) to be close to his treatment center…

 Only the mother initially knows the place used to be a FUNERAL home and habitat of some very SPOOKY & unexplained goings-on in the past. Poor ill Matt is troubled by a bunch of increasingly strange supernatural happenings, & they soon begin to extend to the five other members of the family…

 As “fate” would have it, a handy priest (played by ELIAS KOTEAS) turns up who tries to help get RID of the burgeoning bizarre behavior, which directly involves using Matt to combat the ghosts of the past. Here, the paranormal’s NORMAL, & the eerie ISN’T cheery!...

 Thankfully, this is an “OLD”-style Horror film (meaning, NOT basically a “slasher” flick). The three leads do a GOOD job in being believable, & it’s a surprisingly EFFECTIVE film since the CREEPY isn’t sleepy!...
