'Haunting in Connecticut' is Gonna Rock (w/interview)

I'm all over the map when it comes to movie genres, but if there has been anything in the past year that I've gravitated towards, it's (supposedly) real-life hauntings. I don't believe in ghosts, demons, or the supernatural on any level for that matter, but it's still scary all the same. Things you can't control, things you can't see, things you can't understand -- things that can hurt you, I'm really starting to love it, and Haunting in Connecticut sounds like it's right up my new-found alley.

One of the sites I monitor for news is shocktillyoudrop.com which is kind of an offshoot of comingsoon.net. Anyway, Ryan Rotten (like that name is real..) held an interview with Connecticut's Dan Farrands.
The movie tells the true story of a family forced to relocate near a clinic where their teenage son is being treated for cancer. There, they discover that the home they have rented is a former mortuary with a dark history that might account for the extraordinary manifestations of the boy's illness and the supernatural events that threaten the family.

I suppose that the stress of it all could have caused the family to make it up for the financial attention, or from mental collapse. Either way, it sounds like a good flick.

No information on when filming will wrap, what distributors they've lined up if any, or what kind of time frame we're looking at for release. It may end up going straight to DVD, who knows.

Just a quick gripe, I'm really disappointed with the interview. It wasn't confusing, short, and left much to be desired. No more interviews for Mr. Rotten this year.

To be a completely avid movie fan don't you need a willing suspension of disbelief? If you have that, why is it so far fetched to believe in what you can't see and sometimes what you do see but can't explain? Wouldn't that make the movies all the more horrifying-the fact that you know they COULD be real? What's easier believing that anything unexplained just doesn't exist-or that there are things that exist that are unexplained? Food for though.

"What's easier believing that anything unexplained just doesn't exist-or that there are things that exist that are unexplained?"

For me it's more a matter of not crossing the line from observation to cause without proof. There are an infinite number of things that haven't been explained, but that doesn't mean they can't be, or that they won't be.

A lack of an explanation is not in and of itself proof of a theory.
