In 2009, we traced the steps of the Campbell family in “The Haunting in Connecticut.” On February 1, 2013, we travel to Georgia where the Wyrick family discovers they aren’t the only ones living in an historic home in “The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia.”
“Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia” introduces us to the Wyrick family. Andy Wyrick, his wife Lisa and their daughter Heidi, move into an old home in Georgia. Lisa’s sister, Joyce, soon joins the family in the home.
The family begins life as usual, until they discover they aren’t the only ones living there. From deep underneath the ground comes a secret discovery that threatens anyone who gets in the way.
The family will have to relive injustices from the deep southern past. Will they have to pay the price for them as well?

Emily Alyn Lind plays the role of Heidi Wyrick in “The Haunting in Connecticut 2.” Her young age shouldn’t fool viewers, as she has a long list of television and movie roles behind her. “Movie 43,” released in theaters in 2013, “All American Christmas Carol,” released in 2013, “Mockingbird,” is in post-production and an untitled Larry Dorf and Ben Falcone project for television is in the works. This is merely the top of the list of roles Emily has finished.

Behind the Scenes
“The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia” is written by David Coggeshall. David was the head writer for television series episodes, such as “Watch Over Me” and “Desire.” David is currently working on a project titled, “Solo 2,” that carries no information at this time.
Director Tom Elkins rounds off the cast and crew titles. He is known for his role as announcer for the 1985 film, “Vision Quest.” Elkins takes on a new role as director for “The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia.”
The film, “The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia” is under new management. “The Haunting in Connecticut” was directed by Peter Cornwell and was written by Adam Simon and Tim Metcalfe. The first film received reviews that didn’t put it in the best light.
“The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia” has a chance to succeed where the predecessor failed with a new writer and director. The actors can only reflect what the writing presents, so we’ll see how the new movie fairs.
The first film hailed a $77.5 million paycheck and I guess this merits another try in the franchise. Look for “The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia” in theaters on February 1, 2013.
