The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia on DVD and Blu-ray in March

20 January 2014

Andy Wyrick (Chad Michael Murray; House of Wax) and his wife, Lisa (Abigail Spencer; TVs Mad Men) are over the moon when they find what seems to be the ideal location to bring up their young daughter Heidi (Emily Alyn Lind) – an old house situated deep in the woods of rural Georgia that used to be a staging post for escaping slaves on the underground railway. But soon after the move, as Heidi begins to witness a number of disturbing supernatural events, the ghostly spirits of the house’s past return to unleash terror on the present owners.

Allegedly based on a true story (seriously, does anyone actually buy into that?), The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia is from the same team behind the 2009 The Haunting in Connecticut, and stars Abigail Spencer (Cowboys & Aliens, Oz The Great and Powerful), Chad Michael Murray (House of Wax, One Tree Hill) and Katee Sackoff (Riddick, Battlestar Gallactica) and featuring a strong performance from child actor Emily Alyn Lind.

Whether it's actually any good or a rehash of well worn creepy old house clichés is another matter. The horror community seem,s a little divided, though some do claim that its better than its tacky sequel title suggests, with Horror News.net calling it "an above average ghost tale that should not be blindly tossed aside; it deserves consideration."

The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia will be released on UK DVD and Blu-ray on 3rd March 2014 by Lionsgate at the RRP of £15.99 for the DVD and £19.99 for the Blu-ray.

Special features will include:

  • Seeing Ghosts Featurette

  • Outtakes

  • Deleted Scenes (with optional filmmaker commentary)
