Ratings Key



★★★★
= Excellent. The best the genre has to offer.
★★★
1/2 = Very Good. Perhaps not "perfect," but undoubtedly a must-see.
★★★ = Good. Accomplishes what it sets out to do and does it well.
★★1/2 = Fair. Clearly flawed and nothing spectacular, but competently made. OK entertainment.
★★ = Mediocre. Either highly uneven or by-the-numbers and uninspired.
1/2 = Bad. Very little to recommend.
= Very Bad. An absolute chore to sit through.
NO STARS! = Abysmal. Unwatchable dreck that isn't even bad-movie amusing.
SBIG = So Bad It's Good. Technically awful movies with massive entertainment value.

Changeling, The (1980)

...aka: Enfant du diable, L'

Directed by:
Peter Medak

George C. Scott is a composer traumatized by the death of his wife and daughter after a tragic auto accident. He moves into a large, rented home to get some peace and quiet and finds out the place is haunted. It's a stylish, subtle and well-plotted ghost story... and I still need to write a decent review for it! The Changeling 2 is a re-titled Lamberto Bava movie originally called Fino alle morte ("Until Death").

★★★1/2
