"The Changeling" Blu-Ray Review (Severin Films)
Written by MrParka
Severin Films brings one of the most respected and revered ghost stories to the states on Blu-Ray for the first time ever. One of the most anticipated films to land on the format, Severin handles it terrifically. Peter Medak's legendary film is presented in a remastered edition with plenty of features.
Movie star George C. Scott plays John Russell, a music teacher and composer whose family dies in a tragic accident. Filled with grief John moves into a large mansion to mirror his mourning and emptiness, but soon enough John realizes he isn't alone. Inhabiting the house is the ghost of a child who lost their life violently and mysteriously. John becomes a man obsessed in finding out the truth and neither he nor the spirit can rest until it is exposed.
“The Changeling” benefits greatly from the performance of George C. Scott. His acting and fine detail facial movements take a B-movie storyline and turn it to high class. Not only is George’s acting top notch, but the entire cast delivers; from veterans like Melvyn Douglas to Mr. Scott’s wife, Trish Van Devere. The set designs are just as impeccable as the cast and shot the same. The array of wide and high angles creates a chilling atmosphere, placing characters in certain parts of the frame builds amazing tension. The score is as classy as the lead and just as haunted as the character. The main theme reflects not only the aurora of the lost child, but John Russell’s grief. “The Changeling” has all the right beats placed at the right times, it truly sets a precedent for all other ghost stories. Without a doubt a great ghost story with a good mystery that keeps the audience invested.
Severin has done a knock up job yet again with a bigger property than usual. Hopefully we see more big titles come Severin’s way. The extras on the disc include a commentary with the writer and director as well as interviews with one of the set designers and the composer. The last few items include a location now and then featurette with some familiar horror faces and an interview with an expert who knows the true story of Cheesman Park, the material “The Changeling” was based off of.
THE 1980 HORROR CLASSIC
FULLY RESTORED IN HD
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN AMERICA
Peter Medak’s classic ghost story THE CHANGELING has been out of circulation for years on home video but now looking better than ever in a new HD transfer created from a 4K scan of the inter-positive film element.
It is perhaps the most chilling supernatural thriller of our time. It remains a career peak for star George C. Scott and director Peter Medak (THE RULING CLASS, THE KRAYS). Now the film that Martin Scorsese calls “one of the scariest movies ever made” finally comes to Blu-ray: Academy Award® winner Scott delivers “one of his greatest performances ever” (BloodyGoodHorror.com) as a Manhattan composer consumed by grief after his wife and daughter are killed in a shocking accident. But when he moves to a secluded Victorian mansion, he will find himself haunted by a paranormal entity that may unleash an even more disturbing secret. Trish Van Devere (THE HEARSE), two-time Oscar® winner Melvyn Douglas (BEING THERE) and Barry Morse (ASYLUM) co-star in “one of the most unsettling ghost stories ever” (IFC.com), winner of 8 Genie Awards – including Best Foreign Actor, Best Foreign Actress and Best Canadian Film – and based on actual events.

"What Have They Done to Your Daughters?" Blu-Ray Review (Arrow Video)
In 1972, director Massimo Dallamano (Colt 38 Special Squad, The Night Child) broke new ground in the giallo genre with the harrowing What Have You Done to Solange? Two years later, he followed up with an even darker semi-sequel - the chilling What Have They Done to Your Daughters? A teenage girl is found hanging from the rafters of a privately rented attic, pregnant and violated. Hot-headed Inspector Silvestri (Claudio Cassinelli, The Suspcious Death of a Minor) and rookie Assistant District Attorney Vittoria Stori (Giovanna Ralli, Cold Eyes of Fear) are assigned to the case, the scope of which grows substantially when they discover that the dead girl was part of a ring of underage prostitutes whose abusers occupy the highest echelons of Italian society. Meanwhile, a cleaver-wielding, motorcycle-riding killer roars through the streets of Brescia, determined to ensure that those involved take their secret to the grave. Also starring Mario Adorf (The Bird with the Crystal Plumage) and Farley Granger (Strangers on the Train) and featuring an insanely catchy score by Stelvio Cipriani (Death Walks on High Heels), What Have They Done to Your Daughters? is a fast-paced, brutal and unforgettable thriller from a director at the peak of his creative powers.

Pick a Movie "War Hunt" DVD Review (MGM)
For some soldiers, the fighting never stops even when the battle is over. OscarÂ(r) winner*Robert Redford makes a memorable big-screen debut in this "subtle, poignant, carefully engraved film" (The New Yorker) about the darker side of war. During the final bloody weeks of the Korean War, idealistic Private Loomis (Redford) is sent to the front lines as a replacement in a battle-weary platoon. But when he learns that a reclusive fellow soldier named Endore has been sneaking behind enemy lines to kill under the cover of darkness, Loomis fears that Endore isn't just a fearless warrior but an unpredictable, sinister predator who could prove more dangerous than the enemy! *1980: Director, Ordinary People; 2001: Honorary Award
