The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia (Also known as The Haunting of Georgia) is one of those sequels we expected (because the first one was successful box-office wise), but certainly no one wanted (because that first movie was b-a-a-a-a-a--d). Probably the most original thing out of that first Haunting movie was an image floating/ghostly puke. Yeah… 

This movie's angle is slaves are haunting the main characters' family. Interesting idea, but the chances of it being silly (and having some forced "message") are raised by the concept. Not to mention the casting of once-time idol Chad Michael Murray (who co-starred w/Hilary Duff in A Cinderella Story, and Elisha Cuthbert and Paris Hilton in House of Wax) and a sort-of well-known TV star Katee Sackhoff, as well former Oscar nominee Cicely Tyson, this looks to be another one of those horror movie sequels that Razzie Members will love to hate...

I think that Murray not being a teen idol anymore is his own fault. He became famous for ONE TREE HILL, where he actually did a good job. During the first 4 seasons of the show, he stared in 3 hit movies (2 of which got Razzie nominations). He didn't do any more movies, and continued with the series, until 2009, when he decided to leave TV to focus on his movie career. After that, he was only in TV movies and short films. He's been in very few theatrical releases since his guest appearance on the final season of OTH. Coincidence? I don't think so!

I noticed that the movie is not listed on Box Office Mojo release schedule, which sadly and most likely means it is on the same boat as LOL and Stolen were last year.  


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: This movie was, however, listed in the Sunday L.A. Times as an up-coming release for this Friday, February 1 -- Meaning that, technically, it does qualify for RAZZIE consideration because it's apparently going to play at least a few theatres here in L.A.
