The Changeling Movie Review

One of horror cinema's creepy cult classics, The Changeling earns an A for atmosphere but only a C for developing its plot. The story revolves around a tragic composer and music teacher (George C. Scott), who's lost his family in a freak accident, and decides to move to Seattle to start again. His enormous rented house is pretty obviously possessed by ghosts. He spends the rest of the film trying to figure out why (hint: it's all in the title), though much of this work is rote sleuthing-through-old-newspapers and the like. Obviously an influencer to The Ring, it's a fine little haunted house pic, but its revelations leave a bit to be desired.
