The Haunting in Connecticut 2: The Ghosts of Georgia

Postby sherbetbizarre » Thu Dec 13, 2012 1:03 pm

Formally The Haunting In Georgia movie...



A young family is tormented by the horrors of the past in The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, a chilling new film based on a true story from the producers of The Haunting in Connecticut.

Building on the terror of A Haunting in Connecticut, this horrifying tale traces a young family’s nightmarish descent into a centuries-old Southern hell. When Andy Wyrick (Chad Michael Murray, House of Wax) moves his wife Lisa (Abigail Spencer, TV’s Mad Men) 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 (Katee Sackhoff, TV’s Battlestar Galactica), 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.

Been waiting for this movie. The underground railroad and slavery aspect of the story is clearly made up and was never part of the real story. Clearly was added for Hollywood entertainment and dramatic purposes.

The truely creepy part of this story is some of the messages the real Lisa Wyrick leaves Mr. Gordy on his Find-a-Grave website.

For those not familiar with the story behind the haunting in Connecticut, here are documentaries on the story.

Discovery Channel - A Haunting:

Unsolved mysteries:

There some differences between these two stories, though there was a decade of time between the Unsolved Mysteries and the Discovery Channel features.

Andy Hyrick passed away this past April at the age of 45.

The original Heidi Wyrick case (Haunting in Georgia) was one of my favorites. That seemed truly believable. A Haunting in Connecticut movie (the case that is) seemed like a definite farce. I'm very confused as to why they are intertwined something that happened in Georgia with Connecticut for a sequel that is based on a "true story".

Hmmm... perhaps someone is in need of some dough badly enough. If so, kinda sad....it'll take away from the original Haunting in Georgia thing a lot.

Gosh, I had no idea that Andy passed away!! That's sad news!! I loved the documentary and I read the book. I kind of think this movie will stray too far away from what the truth is supposed to be.

Couldn't they come up with a better title? Why does it have to be a sequel?

Just call it "THE GHOSTS OF GEORGIA." As it reads now: "THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT THAT DOESN'T ACTUALLY TAKE PLACE IN CONNECTICUT!"

It reminds me of the amityville horror 2005 remake...

Aside from the beginning making reference to the Defeo's murders,
The house with the quarter moon windows, the names of the main
Characters being Kathy and George lutz... It was a completely different
Movie altogether IMO.

It's the same with 'war of the worlds' with Tom Cruise in it.
Aside from the title and the tripods, it is a completely different movie!
The real war of the worlds is set in London, has thunder child, the artillery man... Etc etc...
The remake is like a modern day war of the worlds.
It is better to return a borrowed pot with a little something you last cooked in it.

Variety liked it...

Despite its transparently exploitative title, "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" has nothing whatsoever to do with the 2009 supernatural thriller about spirits on the loose in the Nutmeg State. And that turns out to be a very good thing: This sequel in name only is a superior pic in almost every possible way, and deserves better than the half-hearted dump -- limited theatrical exposure day-and-date with VOD release -- it's been given by Lionsgate.

First-time feature helmer Tom Elkins (who served as editor on the original "Haunting in Connecticut" and co-edited this pic) and scripter David Coggeshall do a fine job of grounding the story's fantastical elements in something strongly resembling mundane reality. The Wyricks come across as everyday working-class types (Andy clearly is employed as a prison guard, though his occupation has no bearing on the plot) who behave as though the ability to see ghosts isn't so much a supernatural phenomenon as a troublesome malady. To hear Lisa and Joyce talk, it's simply something that runs in the family and requires routine preventive care.

Elkins shies away from explicit mayhem even when decaying corpses start to shuffle out of the shadows and make nuisances of themselves. Instead, the helmer generates suspense with shrewd pacing, deft emotional manipulation and efficient use of familiar tricks -- jittery editing, flickering lights and unsettling sounds -- common to haunted-house pics.

Overall tech package indicates smart choices were made by production personnel while working on a limited budget. Incidentally, "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" actually was filmed in Baton Rouge, La.

No theatre within 100 miles had this movie this weekend. I wonder will it be a limited release and then go to video.

Cant understand why they chose Baton Rouge cause Georgia is tax free for film makers. Which is why theres so much filming going on here. So many movies and so many shows. ie; The walking dead, Vampire Diaries (filmed right here in town), Rob Zombies Halloween (filmed right here in town), Fast and the Furious 5 and so many others along with older ones like The heat of the night and The Dukes of Hazzard ( first 3 episodes) both filmed right here in town along with 928457388352788776 others. lol They would really have some effects if it was filmed down in Savannah because that city is loaded with paranormal activity!

I have not seen this movie anywhere in my area yet. Must have gone on to direct view on the internet.

Here is a couple of recent interviews with the director and Lisa Wyrick.

I recently watched the movie and wasn't impressed. I found the documentary much more interesting than this movie and was surprised that, Lisa Wyrick is endorsing it.

Looking at that findagrave site I'm not sure Lisa Wyrick is a very mentally balanced person.

I think I must've seen the documentary at one point because the whole "Mr. Gordy" thing sounds very familiar.

I'd like to see the Haunting of Summerwind because the family is probably distantly related to my husband.

So you found those birthday wishes for Mr. Gordie from Lisa Wyrick.

Yup, and she's also the one who leaves all those flowers under another name because there's another comment from her where she says, "I hope you like the flowers I leave you." It's just weird.
