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.

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 mystery, the film builds slowly and steadily, relying on tension and character development rather than lazy scares or gore. Due to this, mainstream horror fans may not be willing to give The Changeling a shot, but any genre connoisseur worth their salt needs to check out Medak's horror master class, as it's hands down one of the all-time great haunted house flicks.
