Building on the terror of The Haunting in Connecticut, this horrifying tale traces a young family’s nightmarish descent into a centuries-old Southern hell. When Andy Wyrick moves his wife Lisa and daughter Heidi to a historic home in Georgia, they quickly discover they are not the house's only inhabitants. Joined by Lisa’s free-spirited sister, Joyce, the family soon comes face-to-face with a bone-chilling mystery born of a deranged desire...a haunting secret rising from underground and threatening to bring down anyone in its path.

New releases were led by Django Unchained on both DVD and Blu-ray. It sold 590,000 units and generated $10.19 million on DVD and 667,000 units / $15.47 million on Blu-ray. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 53%, which is very strong. Since then, the film has sold a total of 1.27 million units and $23.42 million on DVD and 1.08 million units / $25.23 million on Blu-ray. On the other hand, it was the only new release in the top five, or even the top ten.
A Haunting in Connecticut earned terrible reviews, but did well enough at the box office to get a sequel greenlit. Granted, the sequel, A Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia, is practically a direct-to-DVD sequel that's not even set in Connecticut, but clearly the studio thought the name had some value. In fact, they've already given a third film the greenlight. Was this a wise move? Or will people who see this film avoid any others in the franchise?
It's a weak week for limited releases with only two films that are earning overwhelmingly positive reviews. Those two films, The Gatekeepers and Koch, have something else in common, they are both documentaries. So, there are probably no breakout hits on this weeks list.
