The Changeling Review


Very Good
One of horror cinema's creepy cult classics, The Changeling earns an A for atmosphere but only a C for developing its plot. The story revolves around a tragic composer and music teacher (George C. Scott), who's lost his family in a freak accident, and decides to move to Seattle to start again. His enormous rented house is pretty obviously possessed by ghosts. He spends the rest of the film trying to figure out why (hint: it's all in the title), though much of this work is rote sleuthing-through-old-newspapers and the like. Obviously an influencer to The Ring, it's a fine little haunted house pic, but its revelations leave a bit to be desired.

The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981) Review


Very Good
This remake of the original Postman Always Rings Twice has long been touted as the tougher, sexier, and steamier version of the film -- but other than showing a little more blood and a lot more skin, the movies are virtually identical. Both are good movies, but the remake still feels a little unnecessary. Lana Turner did a better femme fatale than Jessica Lange, and Jack Nicholson is at least John Garfield's equal. But director Bob Rafelson doesn't do much different here at all (think Gus Van Sant's version of Psycho), which ends up leaving the original to shine all the brighter.
