The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia in theatres & on demand February 1
Lionsgate releases this production from Gold Circle Films, a sequel to 2009’s THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT. Tom Elkins ( who edited the first film) takes to the director’s chair, working from a screenplay by David Coggeshall. The cast includes Katee Sackhoff (BATTLESTAR GALLACTICA), Chad Michael Murray (HOUSE OF WAX), Abigail Spencer, and Cicely Tyson.
According to the press release, THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT 2: GHOSTS OF GEORGIA “traces a young family’s nightmarish descent into a centuries-old Southern hell. When Andy Wyrick (Murray) moves his wife Lisa (Spencer) and daughter Heidi to an historic home in Georgia, they quickly discover they are not the house’s only inhabitants. Joined by Lisa’s free-spirited sister, Joyce (Sackhoff), the family soon comes face-to-face with a bone-chilling mystery born of a deranged desire…a haunting secret rising from underground and threatening to bring down anyone in its path.”
By the way, we will assume that the film’s claim to be “based on a true story” is a reference to the back story regarding the Underground Railroad (which helped escaped slave get to the northern states before and during the Civil War).
The film opens on February 1, putting it in direct competition with WARM BODIES.
