Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia is a horror film that has nothing to do with 2009's The Haunting in Connecticut, other than the fact that they're both loosely based on "true stories." (In fact, this movie has nothing to do with Connecticut whatsoever.) It's low on gore, blood, and death, but there's lots of scary ghost imagery, including rotting faces, skeletons, and sudden jump-shocks. A small girl is in peril in a few scenes. Language is light, with a couple of uses of "s--t" and a few other words. Characters drink beer in a few scenes. Horror-crazy teens may want to see it, but it's unlikely to have much of a shelf life.
One adult female character wears short skirts and sexy outfits.
Though the movie doesn't have much in the way of death, gore, or blood, it does have plenty of scary, ghostly images, including skeletons and rotting faces, sudden shocks, and creepy, spine-tingling moments. Characters are shown vomiting maggots and roaches, and one character is hung from the ceiling with needles and thread (not as gory as it sounds). A 5-year-old girl is shown to be in peril during various moments. Flashbacks include a lynching and a hanging. Family members sometimes argue with one another.
"S--t" is used twice, but otherwise, language is mild. Other words include "oh God" and "Jesus" (as exclamations), "ass," "hell" (several times), and "damn."
The movie brings up the issue of slavery in American history and how certain people attempted to do the right thing in the face of it. The movie has a tricky twist surrounding this -- a character who was supposed to be a good person actually isn't -- but the modern-day characters understand that slavery was wrong.
Miller Lite beer is shown in a few scenes.
Drugs / Tobacco /
The father character is shown drinking beer in a few scenes. In one scene, his wife playfully tries to steal his drink from him. The mother takes prescription pills to prevent her from seeing ghosts.
