After suffering a horrible personal tragedy composer and music professor John Russell (George C. Scott?!) leaves New York and holes up in a rural mansion near Seattle (actually an amalgamation of Vancouver and Toronto). But his respite is short lived for the house has a grim history and something in the attic has started to demand his attention with loud bangs, slamming doors, and spectral moans…not to mention a persistent little antique wheelchair hidden behind a wall. Seeking the assistance of a medium (cue creepy seance scene) John begins to uncover the secret behind the haunting—a secret so horrible it stretches all the way to the offices of a respected senator… If you are willing to forgive the usual assortment of genre absurdities and dramatic stretches (this IS a horror movie after all) director Peter Medak still manages to pull off a genuinely scary haunted house tale which relies as much on darkened hallways and cobwebbed staircases as it does on ghostly jolts. Russell’s decaying manor provides the perfect setting for all sorts of macabre mischief and an old fashioned score of piano riffs and shivering strings set your teeth on edge. Scott is his usually growly self—imagine General Patton as a Ghostbuster—while co-star Trish Van Devere as his sidekick and maybe love interest manages a convincing scream or two. Spooky stuff from the Great White North.

Terrific film. A real haunted house/ghost story that gives you goose bumps throughout. Scary as hell. Highly recommend it.

Initially, I did not think that I would enjoy it since this film did begin rather slowly, albeit somewhat boring. Then it picked up and kept my interest to the end. I enjoyed how everything played out, especially the happenings in the haunted house and the seance.

This is one of those hidden little gems, a creepy Haunted House movie with lots of suspense and plenty of scares. All in all it is a pretty good movie, that is definitely worth checking out.

There are few media events that cause my body hair to stand erect with fear; one is listening to the annual state of the union address, the other is watching "The Changeling." Every aspect of this film is profound.

Minnie Huxley: That house is not fit to live in. No one's been able to live in it. It doesn't want people.
