A Haunting in Connecticut

Shouldn't it be subtitled, "Based on Total Bullshit."?

There was an article in our local paper about it. Ray Garton, who investigated it, even said it was total bs. Don't have time to go into the whole article right now but maybe I will later.

Well, if there ever was a haunting that was proved to be real, then that would be wonderful.lol.

I read an article about it recently...it said that the lookie-loos were making the current owners of the house miserable. And that is BEFORE the movie came out. How bad is it gonna be once the movie is released?

It's not based on true incidents? Well, maybe now I can see it. If I think it's fiction - I am good. Nonfiction = nightmares.

Matter of fact I dreamed last night I was playing with two ghosts, they were dogs and friendly and I was still scared to death.

Oooh...that's weird, TG. Are you afraid of dogs? Or just ghosts? I have to say I've been going through a phase of weird dreams for the last couple of weeks.

Regarding the house in Conn., I read where the family that lived in the house when these events happened say they're true. I don't know...I always take this stuff with a grain of salt. They said that the fact that the house is no longer haunted is due to the fact that they did a "spiritual cleansing" and got rid of the ghosts (or whatever).

Not afraid of dogs, just ghosts. Never encountered a spirit or anything awake - A lot of my dreams consist of them and I am usually afraid. Sometimes not.

I assume not. I *think* they don't believe in any form of life/existence after death.

It has a lot of those "BOO! Made you jump!" moments in it but overall, I much preferred the version done on the Discovery Channel's show "A Haunting." Caught that late one night when the hub and son were both asleep and I was watching in the dark. That version scared the crap outta me!

Maybe because I liked that so much was why this was just ok to me.

It's worth seeing and the effects are good.....some of the visuals are very arresting, especially the very beginning scenes. (snapshots.) They make a broader appearance later on...very creepy. (Good-creepy. To me. )
I actually have one like it in my Gramma's box of pictures.

The guy who played the main character was very good, he has an unusual face and I liked looking at him. Not in a cougary way, lol. There's just something compelling about him....reminded me a bit of a young Ray Liotta.

The Dad or StepDad was completely unnecessary and has a ridiculous scene that should've hit the cutting room floor. Imo.

I didn't like the abrupt ending.

Oooooh LK!!! I just saw that DC show! It sure was creepy. I really, really wonder about this stuff sometimes...especially when I watch those shows like "Paranormal State"...etc. I don't know what I believe about this stuff.

I think some of it's real and some of it's fake. Some people want to believe so badly that they manufacture 'things' to believe in. Others want so much not to believe that they wouldn't acknowledge a ghost if it bit them. :)

I just believe. I've had some experiences.

Good question. I would think that the answer would be NO!! but, if one was to ever see a ghost, would they still be an atheist?
