The Changeling is a superior haunted house thriller.
The leaps made by Scott's agile mind in identifying both victim and usurper leave logic and credence on the starting block.
If it only took craftsmanship to make a haunted house movie, The Changeling would be a great one.
The Changeling is an icily tense horror which bathes its events in an eerie and otherworldly atmosphere.
Director Peter Medak opts for exposition and atmosphere over jump-scares and other cheap dramatic devices.
Sharing much of its cinematic DNA with the type of captivating, classy horror Hollywood had been producing at the time, where it deviates from this, it does so in genuinely fascinating ways, not least in the emotionally brutal ending.
Copiado à exaustão nas duas últimas décadas, encontra-se datado, mas a ótima atuação de Scott, o roteiro bem amarrado e a direção de Medak merecem aplausos.
corny but creepy
For the most part it's imaginative, understated and effectively creepy.
Rises above convention with some fantastic acting and a careful layering of supernatural rumblings and clue-gathering that makes for a compelling two hours.
One of the very few films that truly, terribly horrifies. A classic.
...a well-told ghost story...
An engaging ghost story that deserves more credit for its twisty plot, uncomfortable atmosphere and Medak's refined direction than for being actually scary (even though it does have its creepy moments), and it boasts a very fine performance by George C. Scott.
The actual haunting of the house, where John Russell (Scott) resides, is handled with craftsmanship and delicacy by director Peter Medak. The tell-tale gothic mansion, the deep bass thuds in the house's walls like a giant's knocks, and the quiet whispering of a child's voice, make this a very ably made haunted house story. While the story behind the haunting, and the search for the truth behind it, make for a really interesting mystery, it's such a strange assemblage of scenes. In the first part of the film we see Russell widowed and he begins teaching composition at a university. When he begins to be haunted, he realizes it almost immediately, goes searching for the truth, and finds it. Russell is never frightened by the ghost, only inquisitive about its origins. He doesn't mind picking up human bones, threatening people, and talking to the ghost in question. Even big old George C. Scott must get scared sometimes, but in this film he's fully self-possessed and seems unable to approach fear. The connection between him and his dead daughter is severed once we indulge in finding out the truth about the ghost, which makes me wonder why he's widowed at all. While the film itself was intricate and complex in the best of ways, there really wasn't anything frightening about it, which is a shame when watching a film about a ghost story.
