57.0 The Changeling with Naben Ruthnum
7 days ago
This week, we're joined by award-winning author Naben Ruthnum to discuss the 1980 classic creeper, The Changeling. A nice little palate cleanser from last week's gore-fest, this atmospheric, and poignant film is more mystery chiller than horror. We discuss what makes a horror film corny, the consistencies of ghostly powers, portraying strong male characters who express deep emotion, and when it's time to send in Zelda Rubenstein. If you're a fan of any of James Wan's films (The Conjuring, Dead Silence, Insidious) you'll love this spooktacular instalment! Check out The Changeling in its place in rights ownership hell on Youtube, but if you can give a local rental shop your money for the DVD - do that.
As an American companion piece, Naben also recommends The Haunting of Julia (Or Full Circle) starring Mia Farrow.
