If you're a big fan of creaking floorboards, sudden jolts, and abandoned funeral homes, go nuts.

A run-of-the-mill spooker that often opts for Dolby jolts and Avid farts over character investment.

Una supuesta historia real sirve de base para un drama familiar enmarcado en un cuento de fantasmas. Nada nuevo. Previsible y efectista.

The movie works hard for your money and should theoretically be scarier than the cut rate television production. But it's not. Not by a mile.

After about the 35th boo scare in as many minutes, the unfailingly cheesy "The Haunting in Connecticut" joins a growing legion of 2009 films offering self-reflective commentary on their own crappiness: "We're bored," shouts a baby brother.

Virginia Madsen and Kyle Gallner give their all to at least anchor some emotional reality to the fairly routine enterprise.

Woe be to you if you don't see this film in a theater packed with back talking New Yorkers. Because then you might be forced to concentrate on what's on screen.

Call it a Lifetime original movie made for Halloween. Call it a Sci-Fi Channel Saturday night thriller. ... and keep waiting for something that might actually scare you.

To its credit, the movie seems to understand that the primal appeal of these stories lies as much in the appearance of solemn dead people as in the possibility of domestic horrors.

In the poorly paced and ineptly edited Haunting in Connecticut, Matt is surrounded by dark shadows, ooky male choruses, and reflections of tortured corpses in dirty glass.

With Virginia Madsen leading the cast, The Haunting In Connecticut tells a good ghost story.

A blasť horror cocktail that has one or two good scares but mostly is a way to lay waste to time you never really wanted back anyway.

...a disposable horror film, made in hopes that some reputable actors might breathe life into the material.

Haunted-house movies would be nothing without the odd frisson of scepticism. This is the best in quite a while.

It's as if the spirits rented DVDs of The Others, The Shining, Poltergeist, The Exorcist and roared, "We'll have some of that!"

The latest in a long line of duff Amityville Horror rip-offs.
