The winner of the worst title for a film is The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia. Why even go with a sequel name when this film has nothing to do with the first? I think it is an intriguing enough ghost story to not need the first part of the title. Just call it Ghosts of Georgia or another more suitable name. It is a film that can stand on its own.
This is a ghost story that deals with a haunted house and its surrounding haunted land in rural Georgia. It was part of the Underground Railroad, but apparently somebody from that period decided to stick around. The film stars Chad Michael Murray, Abigail Spencer, Emily Alyn Land, and Katee Sackhoff. Tom Elkins directed the film and this is his directorial debut after editing films like Wanted, The Da Vinci Code, and the original The Haunting in Connecticut.
“Building on the terror of A Haunting in Connecticut, this horrifying tale traces a young family’s nightmarish descent into a centuries-old Southern hell. When Andy Wyrick (Chad Michael Murray, House of Wax) moves his wife Lisa (Abigail Spencer, TV’s “Mad Men”) and daughter Heidi to an historic home in Georgia, they quickly discover they are not the house’s only inhabitants. Joined by Lisa’s free-spirited sister, Joyce (Katee Sackhoff, TV’s “Battlestar Galactica”), the family soon comes face-to-face with a bone-chilling mystery born of a deranged desire…a haunting secret rising from underground and threatening to bring down anyone in its path.”
The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia is in theatres February 1, 2013.
