The Changeling (1980)

So finally got around to watching this, one of the few horror films I've been looking forward to. The concept and cover art really had me intrigued.

Now it wasn't as good or scary as I was hoping but it was a good watch. I thought they could have gone a little scarier and toned down how much story there was and just make it creepier. There were a few parts that had me ready to be scared but fell short. Although I did jump a few times (laugh).

This was a good movie for it's time and era and definately worth a watch if you like ghost stories. The Sentinel (1977) is still superior to all ghost stories of that era. Another film worth watching for sure.

Synopsis taken from IMDb
It was the perfect family vacation for composer John Russell and his family when a freak automobile accident claims the lives of his wife and daughter. Consumed by grief, John, at the request of friends, rents an old turn of the century house. Mammoth in size, the house seems all the room that John needs to write music and reflect. He does not realize that he is not alone in the house. He shares it with the spirit of a murdered child who has homed in on John's despair and uses him to uncover decades of silence and deceit. With the help of Claire Norman, the one who aided John in procuring the house, they race to find the answers and soon learn that a devious and very powerful man guards them.

Check out The Changeling and enjoy. I give this film 2 1/2 stars. Trailer below.
