Absolutely Horrifying.
The first time I saw this film, I was about four years old. I’m not sure if I have slept right since, I am now twenty four and it still haunts me.

The tale of a lonely musician, who loses his wife and daughter in a terrible accident, and then decides to rent an old mansion in the pacific norhtwest, only to find the house has a history of it’s own. The film is paced well, set perfectly, and reveals a darker side of the bourgeouis than most are willing to explore. A masterpiece.

Spooky seventies slow burn
Peter Medak has one of the most all over the places IMDB credit pages ever. He’s directed everything from the Peter Sellers Satanic farce The Ruling Class to the made-for-TV movie The Babysitter to Zorro, The Gay Blade; The Krays; Romeo Is Bleeding; Species II and episodes of The Wire and Carnivale. Here, he made a “based on true events” tale inspired by the book by author Russell Hunter, who alleged that these events actually happened to him.

John Russell (George C. Scott, bringing the A list talent) has moved from New York City to Seattle in the wake of the deaths of his wife and daughter. He’s moving into a huge Victorian mansion all by himself, thanks to love interest, real estate agent and local historical society member Claire Norman (Scott’s wife Trish Van Devere, The Hearse).

The strangeness starts right away, with loud sounds every morning at 6 AM, a hidden room complete with an ancient wheelchair, his daughter’s rubber ball bouncing all over the house, an awesome seance scene, rumors of a girl killed by a coal cart and the conspiracy that powerful Senator Joseph Carmichael was really a replacement child adopted to keep his father wealthy.

Just because this movie tries to keep it classy doesn’t mean it isn’t effective. The scene where the mirror explodes and reveals the police detective’s dead face before his accident is really effective. And the scene where the Senator climbs the flaming steps is perfectly shot.

Medak wasn’t the first choice to direct this. Originally, Performance and Demon Seed director Donald Cammell – who claimed to have bounced on Aleister Crowley’s knee as a baby – and Tom Jones director Tony Richardson both started work before leaving due to creative differences.

In 1988, Lamberto Bava directed a made-for-TV film called Until Death that was marketed as The Changeling 2. It was written by Dardano Sacchetti and is one of the reasons why Lucio Fulci stopped working with him. Fulci claimed to have written the story based on The Postman Always Rings Twice. His claim was that Sacchetti used the Fulci name to get the script to seen by producers and once they did, he took his name off it.

Regardless, this is a great movie. It’s a bit slow by today’s standards, but you can see its influence in all manner of haunted house films. According to Mendak, “I was in London at the BAFTA Awards and Guillermo was screaming, ‘You’re my mentor! You’re my mentor! I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ He said, ‘Your movie The Changeling is just a masterpiece.’ It’s just nice to hear that from fellow directors whose work I love and respect.”

I’m always amazed that the entire front of the house is a facade. That’s moviemaking magic at its best, really. I’m also amazed that Mendak came onto the project with only a month’s lead time, yet was able to rely on his experience of watching the making of The Haunting.
