C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater: 'The Changeling' (1980)

It's time for a ghost story, this Saturday eve.

"The Changeling," is first and foremost a ghost story. George C. Scott, plays a great musician, who has lost his family in a car accident and goes on to rent a secluded historical mansion in Seattle.

After a while, the house isn't at all the peaceful setting Scott was hoping for.

Director Peter Medak’s haunted-house tale stands as one of the most chilling stories to make it to the big screen. When composer John Russell (George C. Scott) loses his wife and daughter in a car wreck, he seeks solace by renting a secluded estate outside Seattle. But the mansion is haunted by the presence of a child who died there more than 80 years ago. Now, Russell must find out who that child was, and why there seems to be a cover-up now.
