The Haunting In Connecticut (2009)

At a glance:
Supernatural horror of an alleged true story in the 80s, led by Virginia Madsen, starrin some pasty-faced teen from TV (known for Smallville I think) and gigi jongang Amanda Crew from Sex Drive. Some interestin visuals. Story about a cancer kid and his family who moves into a house with a history bla bla bla. Sound poster, though.
Bad news on the doorstep:
Quickly deterioratin after the half hour mark when sharp, loud noises started tryin to drown out the poor, uninspired story. A waste really - it has all the horror elements that could've made it a more interestin and endurin watch. I also read that the true story from which it is based wasn't too much of a sensation either.
Perennial wonderment:
How many ways can you spin a haunted house story?
Reminds me of:
Donny Darko because of that ectoplasm shyte. Would love to see me some of that. My mate's dad is a medium - I should ask him if he's seen such cinematic discharges before. It really is an arrestin sight.
Watch out for:
The scenes from the past. Interestin but came too late.
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?Disappointin two and a half but hope may lie in the supposed several versions that are out there. Still, don't think it would've made much difference unless there's really a lot more meat to the connectin story.
