On August 7th, Severin Films is bringing the film that Martin Scorsese calls “one of the scariest movies ever made” to disc. Peter Medak’s classic ghost story THE CHANGELING has been out of circulation for years on home video but now looking better than ever in a new HD transfer created from a 4K scan of the inter-positive film element.
It is perhaps the most chilling supernatural thriller of our time. It remains a career peak for star George C. Scott and director Peter Medak (THE RULING CLASS, THE KRAYS). Academy Award® winnerScott delivers “one of his greatest performances ever” (BloodyGoodHorror.com) as a Manhattan composer consumed by grief after his wife and daughter are killed in a shocking accident. But when he moves to a secluded Victorian mansion, he will find himself haunted by a paranormal entity that may unleash an even more disturbing secret. Trish Van Devere (THE HEARSE), two-time Oscar® winner Melvyn Douglas (THE TENANT) and Jean Marsh (FRENZY) co-star in “one of the most unsettling ghost stories ever” (IFC.com), winner of 8 Genie Awards – including Best Foreign Actor, Best Foreign Actress and Best Canadian Film – and based on actual events.
A Limited Edition of 5000 is available featuring an exclusive embossed slip case and a bonus soundtrack CD!
*Also available exclusively from the Severin webstore are bundle packages featuring an enamel pin designed by Attic Flood, an 18 x 24 screen printed poster by The Yetee, and even a ball to leave at the top of your stairs.
