I have never seen the original The Haunting in Connecticut, but this is newsworthy and I do get a chuckle out of the subtitle for this sequel: “Ghosts of Georgia.” That’s like making Mississippi Burning II: The Delaware Files. Regardless, this new sequel should build up a respectable bit of buzz and it now has both a release date, a trailer, and several images released for promotion.

Due for a release on February 1st, The Haunting in Connecticut II: Ghosts of Georgia is described as follows:

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.

A southern gothic horror by way of Connecticut! To learn more, click on the following link and check out the official trailer and several promotional stills!
