It's surprising how many of the recent horror films are based on true events. It's like a Hollywood exec somewhere purchased a true ghost stories book and just went with it. The only catch is that most of these are so loosely based that the only real aspect left remaining is the story's location; or the fact that some sort of paranormal element once existed.
Lionsgate's The Haunting in Connecticut is the latest 'based on' horror and, to kick things off, Lionsgate has sent over the film's first poster.

In the tradition of such real-life horror movies as The Exorcist and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Haunting in Connecticut tells the astounding true story of one family's supernatural ordeal. When Sara and Peter Campbell's son Matt is diagnosed with cancer, they uproot their family to Connecticut for his treatment. As the family settles into their new home, Matt grows increasingly disturbed by paranormal activity that seems to inhabit and possess the house. At a loss to help her frightened family, his mother turns to an enigmatic priest who appears to rid the house of its ghosts-- until the boy's condition takes a sudden and unexplained turn for the worse and their lives are put in grave danger.
