My kind of horror

13 years, 4 months ago at Aug 2 21:55
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

9 years, 9 months ago at Feb 23 14:27
"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

Fictional Places You Don’t Want To Visit (205 movies items)

"The Carmichael Mansion, Denver, Colorado Which is worse about this 1980 horror movie location? The supernatural hauntings that besiege it, or the unspeakable crime that gave rise to the hauntings? Most film buffs would likely state the latter. Why you wouldn’t want to visit: It’s haunted by ghosts."

"3.1. Blu-ray Kummitustarinat usein muistuttavat toisiaan. Usein ne myös menevät erityisellä tavalla ihon alle. The Changeling ei varsinaisesti ole poikkeus. Kummitustalo ei sinänsä tuota uhkaa, eikä tulevaa erityisesti jännitä, mutta välitön tunnelma ja tarinan käänteet nostattavat pelkoa väitetysti kokeneessakin katsojassa. Tarina pitää erinomaisesti otteessaan ja saa pohtimaan menetyksen monikasvoista traagisuutta ja sen vaikutuksia."

70 MORE Underappreciated Horror Movies (71 movies items)

"Despite being critically lauded and championed by its fans, this movie remains something of an forgotten gem of the haunted house sub-genre. George C. Scott turns in one of his career's highlight performances as a bereaved man who moves into a house hiding secrets that lead him down dark corridors...literal and figurative."
