New film 'The Haunting in Connecticut' tells the chilling story of a family who in 1986 rented a house in Connecticut that turned out to be an old funeral parlor, the series of paranormal events that followed were both terrifying and mystifying. But while the movie claims to be based on true events, how much truth is there to this claim ?

Allen and Carmen Snedeker moved in with their daughter and three young sons. While exploring their new home, Carmen found strange items in the basement: tools used by morticians. "

To be fair, is there proof to support any supernatural event? well supposedly mind you , voices can be recorded , there are videos , and what about those thermal scanners ??? and the fact that not before nor since has anyone reported anything should be a tip off. “True Story” claims Promotional material for the movie claims that it is based on the "true story" of paranormal activities experienced by the Snedeker family in the 1980s.[4] The Snedekers moved into a house in Southington, Connecticut., and would later claim that it was plagued by some manner of demonic presence. Carmen Snedeker des... [More]

The movie is BASED on a true story. Actually its a butdher of the true story. The whole movie is nothing how the true events happened. Hollywood really killled this movie. A load of crap if you ask me, the movie that is. Any movie BASED on true events is just that. BASED. I hate when they say that.

"based on true events" can encompass any amount of reality. Examples: Was the house really there? Of course. Did this family live there? Why yes! These are in fact true. As mentioned before, the words invoke a lot more than their actual truth roots would cover. However, in Hollywood they don't use statements such as: " Based on true events as per the following facts". They're in the business of selling tickets. If this were a documentary then they wouldn't have the same carte blanch. I've always had trouble believing these tales mainly because there's always some issue/s involved that dispel t... [More]

I'm not going to go tit-for-tat with you over the Bible. How about the Titanic movie? Show there was the ship. Many of the characters in the movie were based on real people. But I doubt Decapria's character was a real person on the ship. Nor was the girls. And I never heard of "the eye of the sea" gem. But pretty much all else was real. It's a movie in the theater. Why do people like you have to spend so much useless energy taring things like this apart?? Good point & good analogy.

To be fair, is there proof to support any supernatural event? Do you mean this haunting or the bible?

my friend lives 2 minutes away from the house she was creeped out when she saw the movie. The people living there must get pranked upon often for living in that house

That is the winning sentance right there. These people stayed living there for years while this stuff supposedly happened. I'd have packed up and moved my family as soon as I thought my kids were acting weird, much less waited to be sodomized by demons for night after night. Actually, they only lived there for about 3 months. The held an exorcism and then left before it started all over. I have on disk a copy of the actual documentary that was on the discovery channel. The movie is an exageration of what really happened. They need to make the movie longer than what it actually was. The Parker ... [More]

The Parker family knew what it was BEFORE the events started happening, however the parents did not believe in the paranormal and disregarded what the kids had told them as an over active imagination because of the past history of the house. I know someone who lived on the block when th... [More]

I thought it was a stupid movie. I loved the Amityville Horror. I actually believed it was true when I saw it. When I went to see this I didn't believe it to be true I thought it was another Amityville Horror but I love a really scarey movie. Not bloody, gorey stuff, just really spooky, scarey. I was extremely disappointed. It was just stupid. Completely unbelieveable. So much so I wasn't in the least bit scared. What a waste of money and time.
