If you’re reading this review then you probably know enough about the plot of The Changeling for me not to go into it here. Basically, it’s a ghost story with an element of the ‘whodunnit (and what did they do)’ thrown in. This description probably does the film an injustice though, as it’s much more interesting than a bog-standard ghost story or ‘whodunnit’. This is largely due to George C. Scott’s performance as a grieving husband/father. Some other reviewers have mentioned that they felt Scott was miscast here but for me he’s perfect in the part, portraying just the right amount of stoicism and pain given what has happened to the character.
Credit must also be given to the director (Peter Medak) and writers too, for refusing to give too much away early on or to go for hackneyed scares. They recognise it’s the story that’s the most important thing here.
On the downside, some of the characters in the film seem a little underwritten (for instance, I’d like to have known more about the senator played by Melvyn Douglas) and the title of the film itself becomes a spoiler at a certain point in the movie. However, these minor foibles don’t change my affection for The Changeling.
With regard to the version I bought, the Second Sight limited-edition blu-ray boxset is a superb package and the best the film has ever looked (or is ever likely to look, despite the naysayers).
