I give up. I really do. There just isn’t going to be a decent horror film ever again. Is nobody capable of making a scary film anymore?
I was going to write a proper review of The Haunting in Connecticut, but frankly if they can’t be bothered with the film, I can’t be bothered writing about it. A total waste of time. Hugely disappointing. AGAIN. Comparable in awfulness with the pointless, gutless remake of The Last House on the Left, a film which totally misses the point of its muse, and which consequently ranks as one of the most appalling horror films I’ve ever seen. And keep in mind that I’ve seen The Haunting in Connecticut. Well, most of it.
I’m never going to watch another new horror film again. I’m done. I’ve got my DVDS of The Exorcist, the whole of Romero’s “Dead” series, the original Hallowe’en and the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Since nobody can be arsed putting the time and effort into making more modern contenders, I’m going to have to make do with what I’ve got: films which are, for the most part, more than 20 years old.
