"Haunting In Connecticut" DVD

Watched the DVD of "Haunting in Connecticut" last night and really enjoyed it. One of the rare paranormal films out the past few years that wasn't some fast food hack job designed to make a quick buck then fade into obscurity.

Peter Cornwell did an excellent job directing, especially considering it's his first live-action feature. He managed to avoid too many predictable shock scenes and build some fine suspense. Writers Adam Simon and Tim Metcalfe also did an impressive job. The story had some nice twists and characters I actually cared for (i.e. I didn't want to see them get hurt vs. rooting for them to get knocked off quickly).

Skip all those over-rated Asian horror flicks (and their American remakes) littering the theaters and DVD shelves. Rent this one instead.
