When their son (Kyle Gallner) is diagnosed with cancer, Sarah and Peter Campbell (Virginia Madsen and Martin Donovan) relocate to a house closer to his treatment center. But if they thought the move would improve his health, they are sadly mistaken. Instead, the unsuspecting family discovers their new home has a dark past, which is about to haunt their future.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Haunting In Connecticut...

This haunted house film has all the usual elements of the horror genre, but also serves up some disturbing visual images and themes. There are frequent depictions of a man mutilating corpses and a living teen is shown with graffiti carved all over his skin. Several scenes depict bodies (including children) in various states of decay and some that have been severely burnt. During séances, people are shown with “ectoplasm” coming out of their mouths. A man drives home late at night in a drunken state, and then verbally threatens his family while removing and breaking all the lights in the house. A young man pours flammable liquid on a pile of bodies in a home and then sets the place on fire, presumably with the intent of killing himself. A young woman is seen in a shower (no nudity is shown) and is “attacked” with the shower curtain by an unseen force. Frequent “jump scenes” are included. Language includes four terms of Christian deity along with a single mild profanity and a single scatological expletive.
