When is a sequel not a sequel? When the characters, the setting and the plot are totally unrelated to the original film, that’s when. Is it just me, or is this annoying?
And my geography isn’t great but a quick Google shows that Georgia is bloody miles away from Connecticut. FFS! I don’t know about you, dear reader, but I find that pretty annoying too. It’d be like having a film called ‘The Haunting in London: Ghosts of Barcelona’. It’s just stupid!
Anyway, this one is about a family that moves into a haunted house [groan]. The little girl can see dead people, as can her mum who for some reason refuses to believe anything the little nipper says.
The woman has a wild sister who can also see dead people, but she’s all kooky and free-spirited so she embraces it, and implores her sister to pay attention.
So anyway, the new house is haunted (it was part of the underground rail-road) and some bad shit happened way back when and now some haunting things are happening, and who really cares because we’ve seen this a million times before, but done better. The word that springs to mind is ‘generic’. Oh, and apparently it’s based on a true story. Urgh.
