Cookie Cutter Jump Scares

This is a pretty standard jump scare haunted house movie. The acting isn't horrible but it's nothing to write home about. The movie plays up the based on the true story angle but if you watch the special features on the DVD you learn that the vast majority of this movie is fiction. The biggest example being the burning of the home at the end. It never burned down... ever, yet the end of the movie says that the house was " rebuilt and resold". Somebody does live in it now but it never burned to the ground or had the dead no decomposed bodies built into the walls. So taking that in to effect we see that the movie isn't really based on the true story making it just another cookie cutter haunted house film full of predictable jump scares. This is a good movie for middle school and high...

It won't give you nightmares, but see it anyway

To be honest, I really found this movie more sad than scary.
A teenage boy, stricken with cancer, and his family rent a home to be closer to the hospital where the boy is receiving his treatments. It soon comes to light that the house was once a funeral parlor where seance's and other not-so-pleasant things once took place. Before long, many strange things start happening in the house, and Matt, the teenage boy, is most affected by this. At first, his parents think the treatment he's undergoing in a clinical trial is to blame for his hallucinations, but it soon becomes apparent that something is very wrong in their hell house.
This movie is pretty much your standard things pop up and scare you type of flick. The story is interesting, but hard to follow at some times because it's somewha...

The Haunting in Conneticut.

The Haunting in Conneticut.

A story revolving around a family with a son who suffers from cancer, they move into a cheap rented home. a dream for ther family, but there's a catch - it's a former funeral home. Matt Campbell, who suffers from the cancer, takes thge basemnt as his room whilst undergroing radical treatment for his disease. BIG MISTAKE. A series of increasingly errie and terrifying supernatural events occur, with Matt delving into the houses history with his rather attractive carer, Wendy and learning that back in the 19th century, a mediuym by the name of Jonah helped a necromancer scientist (indeed) named Ramsey Aickman in his research of necromancy. The event sof the past show uis Jonah is a friendly, if not grotesque and monstrous, ghost who wants to warn Matt about the...

Needed to Tone Down the Score

I was surprised by how much this film was grounded in reality even though the trailers sold it off as a typical ďbased on a true storyĒ demonic possession. Virginia Madsen and Martin Donovan star as the parents who choose to move in a house with a creepy history because their sonís (Kyle Gallner) cancer treatment facility is nearby. Itís not long until spirits start to get themselves known to Gallnerís character in truly horrifying manners. I really admired the first thirty minutes of this horror flick because things that most people would consider as supernatural are things that can happen to cancer patients going through various therapies (i.e. hallucinations). I wish Peter Cornwell, the director, decided to keep straddling the line between science and the supernatural because itís very...
