Tis the first Friday in the month, which means I talk about which horror movie I’ll be live-tweeting! Join me in watching the 1980 film The Changeling!
On a quest to find all the horror I’ve missed in life, I scrolled through Shudder TV, found this movie, and wondered why I hadn’t seen it. You read correctly, I have not seen this movie. I’m also shocked.
The Changeling, a 1980 Canadian supernatural/psychologcal/horror movie, directed by Peter Medak, story by Russell hunter, and screenplay by William Gray and Diana Maddox, sounds like a fun ghostie tale.
Composer John Russell’s wife and daughter are killed in an accident, which wraps John in grief and sends him running to hide in a secluded place in Seattle.
Only he’s not alone.
My favorite types of stories! A ghost. A mystery. And hopefully plenty of spooky stuff.
I haven’t seen it, so here’s what I’m looking for. An old house always provides serious atmosphere, so give me all the shadows and dark hallways and creaky doors. A search for how someone died means plenty of creepy clues, as the ghost tried to tell all the secrets in their odd way, and dipping into the sorted past, an accident…mayhem…MURDER? Overall, I’ll hope for emotional links to John Russell and his ghost, for healing and moving on, for a grand journey of the soul, all set in the wonderful realm of scary.
That’s not asking for much. The Changeling won numerous awards, which makes me super excited.
Mark your calendars! Friday, March 20th at 9 pm EST, find me on Twitter at #MidnightSocietyMovieNight and #TheChangeling as I post all my thoughts and reactions to the movie.
Enjoy reading my tweets, or watch with me! SERIOUSLY WATCH WITH ME AND TWEET ALONG IT’S FUN I SWEAR AND THEN I WON’T HAVE TO HAUNT YOU LATER…
*ahem* Sorry…see you in the Twittersphere!
Cheers and nightmares,
