The movie is more scary for what you don't see and what is implied. Much scarier than slash flicks where you expect a regular stream of blood and guts.

Great story well acted and unwraps at a decent pace. Spooky throughout really enjoyed it for an older horror.

One of the all-time great haunted house films

"That house is not fit to live in. No one's been able to live in it. It doesn't want people."

The Changeling is pure class, a rare type of haunted house movie which is genuinely effective and frightening. Directed by Peter Medak, it's a horror movie short on jump scares and violence, but it succeeds because it's deftly made and insanely atmospheric. A superb mix of horror and myster... read more

"OCTOBER 2: I did not get to finish this movie. Despite there not being very many scratches on the disc, I got about halfway through the movie, before it started freezing and then jumping around erratically. It's been so long since I've watched this movie and, since I wasn't able to finish it, it's hard to write even a short review of it. From the parts I was able to watch, this movie seems more of a thriller than a horror movie. The wheelchair is definitely creepy, though, and it puts me in mind"

"7.4. Aika vaikea tästä oli paikallistaa oikeaa jännitettä, mutta kotikutoista vanhan ajan charmia (kauheaa puhua näin vuodesta 1980) sen sijaan piisasi. Laadullisesti kaikki osa-alueet ovat vähintäänkin kelvollisia, mutta jos kauhuelokuvan pääfunktion luulisi olevan pelon herättämisessä, The Changelingissa jäätiin aika kauas tästä tavoitteesta. "
