Heidi seeks to find out who she keeps seeing around her.
A TV movie that never steps outside the boundaries of the medium (there are even recaps every 10-12 minutes so you can spot where the ad breaks where), A Haunting In Georgia is still reasonably effective in places because it's a pretty standard, spooky tale.
The title says it all. A family move into a new home and gradually start to experience paranormal incidents. The daughter, a young girl names Heidi, keeps seeing people that nobody else can and she feels the strangeness around them more than any of the other family members. Ghosts? The imagination of a child? Too many positive ions in the air? The family seeks answers.
Anthony Call narrates the proceedings and everything is re-enacted as it's being explained, which detracts somewhat from the building atmosphere of spookiness. Director Jeffrey Fine and writer Michael Ray Brown make sure that everything stays TV-friendly and only ever hint at even darker moments. The cast on screen do okay but this isn't about the quality of the acting throughout. Indeed, a number of people appear as themselves in both talking head moments and re-enactments of events so this is just about hearing the tale from those affected by it.
Those interested in the paranormal will find this reasonably entertaining but it's far from the best of its kind.
