The Changeling (1980)

The Canadian supernatural horror film from 1980; its plot follows an esteemed New York City composer who relocates to Seattle, where he moves into a mansion he comes to believe is haunted. The screenplay is based upon events that writer Russell Hunter claimed he experienced while he was living in the Henry Treat Rogers mansion in the Cheesman Park neighborhood of Denver, Colorado, in the late 1960s. The film also features Melyvn Douglas also in our book to screen episode Ghost Story. The film won eight inaugural Genie Awards, including Best Motion Picture, and was nominated for two Saturn Awards. It is considered one of the best horror films of all time, and one of the most influential Canadian films of all time.

The Fog (1980)

The John Carpenter’s supernatural horror film would put mother and daughter scream queens in a film together in the form of Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis. It tells the story of a strange, glowing fog that sweeps over a small coastal town in California, bringing with it the vengeful ghosts of mariners who were killed in a shipwreck there 100 years before. A novelization of the movie, written by Dennis Etchison, was published by Bantam Books in January 1980. The novel clarifies the implication in the film that the six who must die were not random but in fact descendants of the six original conspirators. The film has a guest star appearance by John Houseman who also features in our book to screen film this month Ghost Story.
