Sean Kelly

My Thoughts on The Haunting in Connecticut

That haunted house film is probably one of the hardest subgenre of horror to do. How do you portray ghosts on film without it being cheesy?

This film was a mixed bag for me. I found that I was very passive for most of the film, with scenes that were supposed to be scary getting pretty much no reaction.

However, when the hauntings intensified towards the end, I was able to get into the film a bit more (there was even a single scary shot).

In the end, The Haunting in Connecticut was not bad, but there are better haunted house films out there.

7/10
