Description: Director Peter Medak will appear in person in between screenings of his Masters of Horror episode “The Washingtonians” and his feature film THE CHANGELING (1980). The latter, made at a time when the horror genre was overwhelmed with slasher films, is a very good attempt to buck the then-current trend in favor of fashioning an old-style haunted house movie. It’s all about what happens when a widower (George C. Scott) rents an old house and gradually discovers the restless ghost of a murdered child, leading him to seek a solution to the mystery of the child’s death.
Part of the Friday Night Drive In Masters of Horror series.
