Unfortunately, that slight potential is underused, and we end up instead with a repetitive abduction flick.

The Haunting in Conneticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia (2012) It wasn't until about halfway through the film that I realized this sequel, in a bold/confusing/weird move, has absolutely nothing to do with the original, aside from the very tenuous plot connection of a family moving into a house where they experience the paranormal consequences of the actions of the previous tenants.

The story is really routine and kind of boring though and the filmmakers acting like it's based on fact kind of cheapens the whole movie experience in my opinion.

A slight improvement over the boring first part, that is to say this is slightly less boring.

What a waste of time .

Overall, "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" was an above-average horror sequel, with many exciting twists and turns.

There's really no plot, just one scene after another.

The film had tiny moments of creepiness and intrigue with grotesque imagery but the pacing was slow, it was scare free for the most part, didn't take advantage of the back-story and was mostly an unoriginal affair.

This is a lot of effects, both in what you see and hear, but it is all tiresome instead of scary.

Not much else to say, except really enjoyable and worth a second watch

Chad Michael Murray plays the father Andy Wyrick and gives a pretty bland performance and doesn't have much of a part.

It is just too confusing to be really good.

Problem is this movie plods along through all the plot and throws in a few scares to keep the viewer happy (or bored, take your pick).

I feel the story simply wan't compelling and not that interesting, and in comparison to the prequel - guess what.

Jordan talking to little girl ghosts, Heidi continuing to see the hooded figure, the terror they felt was all compelling.

Watched this out of boredom planned on doing Homework while watching it and I stopped my homework and got into it!

It was pretty suspenseful at times and I liked the historic feel to it!!!

It's always kinda confusing and not very interesting with decent performances and amateur direction.

The script was predictable, the acting was hit and miss.

It was made tedious by the constant labored efforts to tickle our startle reflex -- efforts that are purely mechanical in nature (the images themselves were not interesting or scary).

Here's another yawner with so many loud bangs and "this is the time to freak out or jump" cues (the soundtrack is quite noisy and never- ending), it doesn't have time to breathe.

Even the interview I heard with them on Darkness on the Edge of Town made no mention of the events in this film.

It just jumps about a bit and also gets pretty repetitive.

Those ghostly encounters, all hidden away in the woods around their home and centered around the main tree in the backyard are all quite intense and make for some truly chilling moments as the supposed peaceful nature of their behavior is contradicted by their startling appearance, and as there's more and more of them spread throughout it really deepens the mystery quite nicely by generating more and more back-story to tell what originally happened.

i mean it was so boring it was like watching paint dry.

Fans who are entirely undemanding of where or how they receive their ghostly chills may enjoy it a little, but the rest of us will be bored by the too-dark cinematography, which turns everything blue (like 99% of similar films); the bland cast members, who can bring no life to their thankless roles; and the entire lack of decent characters.

And, indeed, THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT 2 is an entirely predictable addition to the usual genre of modern haunted house movies.

boring and slow moving .

Mr. Gordy, Khan (Lon), The faceless hooded figure were all creepy and made for an entertaining story.

) and is relatively enjoyable.

The Cliché in Connecticut.. .

Chad Michael Murray was completely pointless, giving an unconvincing and lacklustre performance.

Although no one can ever explain that they get to look at chad Michael Murray for over an hour, that's certainly enjoyable.

Far too many non-scary ghost scenes, poor acting and a very cliché plot.

By no means is this a great movie, but it is certainly enjoyable.

Likewise, the fact that this one keeps going back-and-forth about the history of the main ghosts' behavior as being either good or bad gets a little confusing with all the switches as it's hard to keep track of whether we're rooting for him or not by switching it up all the time, never focusing it on one specific viewpoint until it's past the point of caring.

wow this film was just so boring and slow moving!

This movie is so overwhelmed with so many ghosts that it becomes quite boring to the viewer, pretty fast.

But yeah, she's on drugs to deny what she knows, with the entire gift versus curse issue being played out for far too long.

Interesting, startling at times, and very engrossing.

Sometimes decent but mostly bland and uninspired non sequel .

Don't waste your time.

It was so boring and I almost fell asleep while watching it...

This turned out to be quite the enjoyable and exciting effort that has a lot going for it.

An unnecessary and pointless sequel that isn't really a sequel.

Among the better qualities here is that at it's heart there's a rather impressive and enjoyable mystery that slowly gets unraveled here which makes for quite the enjoyable time here.
