The Haunting in Connecticut
“If the movie has a flaw, it's too many surprises.” CHICAGO SUN TIMES
Reportedly based on true events experienced by the Snedeker family in the 1970s, a family is forced to relocate for their son's health and they begin experiencing supernatural behaviour in their new home, which turns out to be a former mortuary.
It is 1987, and Connecticut teenager Matt Campbell (Kyle Gallner) is undergoing painful, experimental cancer treatments. Long drives to the hospital are making a trying experience even worse, so his mother, Sara (Madsen), rents an old house and moves the family closer to Matt’s clinic. Soon after moving into the house, Matt begins to have disturbing hallucinations of strange figures; but believing these visions to be unfortunate side effects of his cancer therapy, he keeps them to himself. When the visions persist, a bit of sleuthing reveals the Campbells’ new abode to be an old funeral home where séances were held in the 1920s by a mortician who also had dealings in the black arts that have left some restless spirits wandering the house.
