Review :

Adam Simon and Tim Metcalfe must have brooded a thousand nights before coming up with a storyline like this. Thankfully, their dark vision is beautifully translated to cinematic brilliance by Peter Cornwell’s direction.

The Haunting in Connecticut revolves around a supernatural thriller vibe. It is the story of a family that is compelled to shift to Connecticut for the treatment of their son. Soon after their arrival, they begin to witness events that are not explicable. They assume the events to be caused due to stress but soon find out that the house really has a dubious past. To their great fear, they sit through the revelation of the house’s past. They come to know that it was a mortuary.

With a priest’s assistance, they gather that the former house owner’s son Jonah had a clairvoyant past in which he could reach out to the dead and help the spirits in crossing over. Having this been said, the home was essentially being used as a funeral parlor. Now, with a new family again populating the barren house, Jonah returns to create panic and terror in the minds of its residents. The demonic messenger wields such strong superpowers that the family simply gets blown away. They unite against the curse and somehow bring themselves to fight it.

Erik. J. Berg’s enactment of Jonah and Virginia Madsen’s portrayal Sara Campbell are riveting illustrations. The first gives the impression of a torturer and second exudes anguish. The despair and cold rage are beautifully etched out by Virginia.

The film is loosely based on the Snedeker family’s encounter with the supernatural forces, and smartly brings to light what we like keeping to the dark.

The Haunting in Connecticut is due to be released on March 27th, and shall get its deserved prize from the box office. Here is to wishing the movie all the best.
