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.

The rotting corpses, projectile insect vomit, and creepy geezers in black arrive pretty much on cue, as does the great Cicely Tyson as the obligatory old blind woman who "sees" more than most people with two good eyes.
Ultimately nothing more than a decrepit vehicle for the moldiest of scary-movie clichés: screechy specters, inane character behavior and jump scares that a toddler could anticipate minutes ahead of time.
Some decent scares are provided in this refreshingly low-key ghost story.
This sequel in name only is a superior pic in almost every possible way, and deserves better than the half-hearted dump -- limited theatrical exposure day-and-date with VOD release -- it's been given by Lionsgate.
The filmmakers trot out slavery as a general sins-of-the-past signifier and then have no idea what to really do with such a painful real-world issue.
With such a ridiculous title, I was all prepared to make fun of the ridiculousness the movie surely contained, but I was pleasantly surprised by the surprisingly creepy and robust scare-fest.
Much like Toni Morrison's acclaimed novel Beloved, this horror film explores the legacy of slavery and -- just kidding.
The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia is a good time killer and perfect for a rainy day inside
The Haunting In Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia is just as tired a haunting film as its predecessor, failing to signify itself as a uniquely entertaining horror experience.
I'm not sure why the producers even bothered to dramatize the story if they weren't going to keep tight on the details, but I suppose there are greater mysteries in play here. Top of that list: What happened to Connecticut?
Credibly acted and hardly much worse than the original, but just as bereft of atmosphere and by-the-numbers.
Besides having one of the worst titles in recent memory, this formulaic horror flick doesn't have much originality to boot.
