Director Peter Medak fled Hungary during the 1956 revolution and his best work, like The Ruling Class and Let Him Have It, usually expressed a strong socio-political bent. The Changeling, his 1979 ghost story is no different, mixing supernatural thrills and political intrigue. An eerie and elegant film with haunting overtones of 1944’s The Uninvited, it stars George C. Scott and Melvyn Douglas who bring welcome gravitas to the proceedings.
