Better than most new horror films...,
This review is from: A Haunting in Connecticut (DVD)
Though the DVD quality wasn't as good as the original Discovery Channel broadcast, this documentary was still good enough to make me keep the lights on for a few nights. I saw the original episode a few years back, just out of luck I happened to catch it in it's entirety. Now, I'm already a coward who jumps at my own shadow, but I can't help enjoying horror films and paranormal programs. Most scary movies today don't move me at all. There's a jump here or a gasp there, but nothing like what I experienced from this documentary. This was enough to scare me for a few days. I honestly slept with the lights on for about three nights straight, possibly longer! I don't think I've been that shaken from a film in my entire life. Coincidentally my best friend and I had been discussing the television show "A Haunting" a year or so later and it happens that he too had seen this documentary and found it just as disturbing as I did! We both still remembered the fine details, even though we both had only seen it once. That's unheard of for me. So of course, I had to buy the DVD. It's not as scary the second time around, but maybe that's because I know when to cover my eyes. Hahaha.
Even my parents enjoyed this DVD, and they usually can't stand the horror movies or paranormal programs I like.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good deep down scare that will stay with you for a while.
