A very well-made film with solid writing and powerful acting, 9 April 2009
Author: ASpiralingRedDream from United States

If you are looking for a horror film to entertain you, look away. I was pleasantly surprised at The Haunting in Connecticut. I expected it to be just another horror story, and while it is a ghost story, I do not think it really succeeded at scaring us. It did have the usual scares and bumps, and they are well done, but we have already seen all of the possible things to scare us. That is why I think the film might get hate. But instead of just focusing on the ghosts, I found myself really invested with the characters. The screenplay is very well written, it plays out a little bit like a family drama. There is the son with cancer, and I felt that the story really was strong in that aspect. Virginia Madsen is very powerful as the mother, and Kyle Gallner is very effective as Matt Campbell, the son with cancer. I found the acting in this film to be probably it's strongest aspect. There were a lot of scenes I did not care for, mostly the scenes trying to lead scares and goosebumps. Some of them did work, however, thanks to the genius editing. The editing was very creative and added to the suspense, even when the actual scary moments were really not scary. What I mean is if the film was just trying to be a very scary, very suspenseful film, than it really did not do justice all that much. However, what I really liked about it was the very well developed characters, the realistic simplicity between the family, the tension between the son and the rest of his family who were really scared of him. Not to mention the really strong acting. That is why I think the film is worth seeing, and why I found myself really liking it. Usually, films like this have a lot of gore, a lot of clichés, and a lot of bad acting and writing, but have 'entertainment' for the young people. That is why this film is the opposite. It is not very clichéd, besides the obvious scares, and is a strong film, mostly when it depends on the normality. It did not scare me, but it sure provoked emotion and a powerful ending.
