    Involving, fun, and thoroughly frightening with just enough creeps and crawls to keep you on the edge of your seat. Check it out!

    So this probably won't go in the Hall of Fame for film ingenuity, but as the modern horror film that it is, it delivers a very intriguing plot that really caught my attention. The characters were mostly pretreated beautifully, except for a couple times when their actions were a bit predictable. I honestly love this movie because it doesn't solely rely on blood and guts to So this probably won't go in the Hall of Fame for film ingenuity, but as the modern horror film that it is, it delivers a very intriguing plot that really caught my attention.

I honestly love this movie because it doesn't solely rely on blood and guts to deliver a good shiver, it creeps you out with ghosts and real life experiences that can be more relevant to people's lives (therefore more believable and creepier). I would strongly recommend for people to watch this. Expand

    I went into this expecting The Exorcism of Emily Rose part 2, in other words just utter crap, but this was a really good horror movie. As far as horror movies that make it to theatres in North America this was one of the scarier ones. It's creepy as hell and the acting and plot is good enough to make you buy in to the whole mess.

    I admit, this was a really good movie. I did jump and scream a few times. It does deliver thrills, chills and scares. I'd definitely recommend this movie.

    Amazing film, and the critics should really rate this movie higher. The jump scares are actually scary unlike most ghost movies. This film is worth the watch.

    Haunting tweaks familiar tropes enough to make them interesting. Just not so interesting as to inspire many nightmares after the credits roll.

    Long on atmosphere yet short on dramatic tension.

    In the realm of domestic horror, The Haunting in Connecticut is about as scary as a shower that suddenly changes temperature when someone flushes the toilet.
