It seems every few months or so I get the urge to discuss horror. There was that popular thread quite some time ago where I asked about The Eye. Wait, that never achieved much in the popularity area. Forget that example.
Well, I also had that popular thread where I asked about some horror movies. What were they again? Devil's Backbone, Jacob's Ladder, and Session 9. I bought all the films over the summer and I watched them, but I do not think I ever gave my thoughts on the films. I loved Devil's, liked Jacob's Ladder, and thought Session 9 was okay. But that thread is not the point of this thread I am about to begin here. I just felt like talking about past horror adventures on the board, because they are all I have got keeping me alive.
Now to get to the meat and potatoes of this post: the subject of The Changeling. I have never seen this film, but it came to my attention through watching Bravo's 100 Scariest Moments a week or two ago. Now I have done some research on this film and I have seen it labeled as one of the scariest movies ever filmed and that it should not be watched alone. Do you agree?
Now some of you, or those who probably are the general horror fans of this board as evident by our past discussions (Caesar, Hellboy, B'Omarr Monkey and maybe others...my brothers in horror!), are probably wondering why I started a thread about a movie I have yet had the pleasure of watching. Well, I am not really sure. As moderator of this particular forum, I feel I should try and get discussion started when I can. And this is one of those times!
I will, however, be watching The Changeling in about two weeks when I return home for a brief, but so appreciated, Thanksgiving vacation from THE Ohio State University. I bought the dvd because it was cheap and I had a coupon (read: gift certificate I gained by lying on a survey) from amazon.com that forced me to spend money when I should not be spending money. So I will let you all know what I think at the end of the month once I have watched this film.
George C. Scott, do not let me down!
P.S. Discuss this movie, or else you will make me cry.
