The Changeling (1980)

The ChangelingThe Changeling (1980) This is a really entertaining and truly scary horror movie, a great one to watch late at night. It was recommended to me by a good friend who is also a movie buff but not into horror at all, so I was skeptical going into it but really loved it. George C Scott gives an awesome performance as always. Not a lot of cheese or gore like most of the movies I recommend but just a really good horror movie with great atmosphere that sticks with you. Trivia: The movie is based on events which supposedly took place at a house in Denver, Colorado, in the 1960s. The Chessman Park neighborhood in the movie is a reference to Cheesman Park in Denver, where the original haunting transpired.

  1. Truly one of the top 5 haunted house movies out there, IMHO. I love me an eerie house story.

  2. This is a great movie; it doesn't scare me very much, but its atmosphere is awesome, and so is George C. Scott.

  3. Like George C. Scott. Loved him in Patton. This one looks good. Gotta check it out!
