Lionsgate Films will release on Blu-ray Tom Elkins' The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia (2013), starring Abigail Spencer, Chad Michael Murray, and Katee Sackhoff. The release will be available for purchase online and in stores across the country on April 16th.
Official synopsis: Building on the terror of The Haunting in Connecticut, this horrifying tale traces a young family's nightmarish descent into a centuries-old Southern hell. When Andy Wyrick (Murray, House of Wax) moves his wife Lisa (Spencer, TV's Mad Men) and daughter Heidi (Emily Alyn Lind, TV's Revenge) 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 (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.

I'll pass. I thought the first was really boring. And they should have just called this A Haunting in Georgia, but I guess they were afraid people wouldn't make the connection to the first. And honestly, many probably wouldn't have. Likely would have brought in a bit less money if they didn't spell it out for people. So as ridiculous as the title is I get why they did it.
Well, it's an indie horror sequel, so it doesn't HAVE to have anything to do with the original.
As one critic wrote, any new aspiring horror "franchise", after the first low-budget one becomes a hit, becomes a game of Hot Potato, as the rights to use the title is tossed from one owner or producer or spinoff storyline to the next, until whoever's left holding it has to "reboot" the original film and then the game's over.
I haven't seen the 2nd movie but maybe it's somehow related to the first movie that actually took place in Connecticut and somehow the family moved out to Georgia? Or maybe the ghosts from there moved on to Georgia? Just looking at this movie at all angles.
