The only similarity between this movie and the original 'Haunting in Connecticut' is the title. Two totally different movies.. Ghosts of Georgia actually takes place in Georgia and nothing about Connecticut is ever mentioned.

The story is based on a couple and their daughter, who just moved into a new home in the countryside of Georgia. Their daughter begins seeing people or ghosts, and the story of who lived on this property years ago begins to unfold. It has to do with the underground railroad, slavery and is supposedly 'based on a true story'.

Overall it's a good film. It has a pretty good story-line and manages to keep you interested throughout, with constant ghost scenes. The movie really strives on it's good acting by Chad Michael Murray, Abigal Spencer & Emily Alyn Lind.

A true ghost story, and very well done. Definitely worth a watch!

Although I thought the movie was decent for what it is the makers of this film should not have claimed that it is based on true events, because for those of us who know the original Wyrick story this movie is no where close to their story. Well, let me take that back. There is a Lisa, Andy, Joyce, Heidi, and yes a man named Mr. Gordy, but that is where the true details end. There was never mention of the Underground Railroad in their original story, and Pine Mountain to my knowledge does not have a connection to the Underground Railroad. And the house they lived in was not centuries old like the movie, but a ranch style cinder-block home. I could have enjoyed this movie much more, if they left the Wyrick backstory out of it. And for future films, which I know they'll make, leave "The Haunting in Connecticut" out of it. This was "A Haunting in Georgia".

First off, let's just get something out of the way. "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" never had a chance to succeed. With a paradoxical title like that, audiences are given a red flag immediately. If the producers of a movie can't decide on a better name for a film, then how could they make bigger decisions during production? Just pick a name! Was "Ghosts of Georgia" any more generic than "The Haunting in Connecticut?" The reason I sound so frustrated is because it deserves better.

The Wyrick family moves into a country house in Georgia. Their daughter, Heidi, soon begins telling her parents she talks to a man who warns they're in danger. Upon investigating, they find out their house is located on land once owned by a stationmaster of the Underground Railroad. The souls of the slaves are restless and begin haunting the family for unknown reasons.

Director Tom Elkins and writer David Coggeshall put together quite an impressive ghost story with "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia." While "based on a true story," it's obvious some creative license is utilized to spice things up. However, there are some genuinely frightening moments that will resonate with viewers. Let's just say Elkins and Coggeshall know our innermost fears and exploits them.

The entire cast of "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" put forth their best efforts and embrace their individual characters. You can tell they took the material seriously and ran with it. Chad Michael Murray plays the father of the family. Abigail Spencer takes on the role of the mother. Katee Sackhoff portrays Spencer's free-spirited sister who comes to live with them. Emily Alyn Lind is perfect in as the little girl Heidi.

Let me preface this by saying I remember watching the real life documentary of this movie years ago. I was completely intrigued by the story and the documentary really gave me some frights. When I heard they were bringing the sister documentary Haunting in Connecticut to the big screen, I was hoping Georgia would get a similar treatment. Flash forward and here it is! All in all, Ghost of Georgia is a decent scary movie. The actors were all enjoyable and I knew a lot of them from various TV shows. Even the plot is decent and easy to follow, without any gaping holes to speak of. My issue was that there weren't enough frights! Haunting in Connecticut scared the bejeezus out of me, but Georgia didn't really make a blip on my scare meter. At times it got a tad too preachy when discussing slavery and the events that occurred on the Underground Railroad. It wasn't a great film, but it's worth a rental! While you're at it, check out the original documentary too! That's the real scary story!

Aside from the ridiculous title which is an obvious ploy to cash in on the marginal success of " The haunting in Connecticut" the "Georgia" sequel lacks the ingenuity and creepy structure of the original - and it does so in spades.

Another film supposedly based on a "true story" leaves much to be desired - especially for horror film buffs. However the effects are quite decent but alas predictable in the very real sense that there's nothing here we either don't see coming or haven't seen before.

Abigail Spencer and Chad Michael Murray do their best with the convoluted script and fractured dialogue. Young child actress Emily Lind at only four years of age actually turns in one of the more compelling performances. Director Tom Elkins creates a dismal and spooky enough atmosphere but again the story line is fractured - and even the best of the scares are unfortunately forgettable.

One shinning jewel is seeing the great Cicely Tyson who does indeed turn in albeit brief an excellent performance and perhaps for these positive points alone the movie is well worth seeing. However I recommend waiting to see it for free - which should be any time now.
