31 Days of Halloween - Day 31 Movie

The fact that I had to resort to a scan of the DVD cover for this post, shows just how underrated, and pretty much forgotten, "The Changeling" (1980) is. The truth though is that this is one of the best haunted house movies of all time. The cast, led by husband and wife team of George C. Scott and Trish Van Devere is excellent. The house, the music, photography, editing, direction and screenplay all form a chilling whole.

I just saw it for the first time this year, and I'll be buying it. I love to be badly scared, but not scarred for life by movies like Saw or Hostel. Movies like this -- with good plots, twisted, horrible crimes against humanity (avenged horrifically, of course!) and great scares yet no gore whatsoever are my favorite kind of horror movie. I wish they'd make more like this.
