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"
