it's still a bit more gruesome than I care for. And they always deal with something evil, some monster or devil or whatever. I just don't like that.

I'm wracking my brain trying to think of the George C Scott movie, it's about 25 yrs old. Got it--just did a Google. The Changling

The first time we saw this, dh and I were living in this mansion. It was our first year at Marquette University and we were housesitting for a professor who was on sabatical. His house was this huge huge Victorian house, three stories, four fireplaces, stained-glass windows, carved woodwork throughout, etc. Anyway, after watching this very scary film, I was half way up the staircase--a curving, handcarved ballister staircase just like in the movie--and half-way up the stairs, dh (who was hiding on the servant staircase) turned out all the lights. I've never forgiven him for that. And he's never forgotten how he scared me out of my skin. (You'll have to watch the movie to see why that was so horribly mean of him to do that!)

Here are some reviews: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0783116926/102-4651015-8749724?v=glance (one of the reviews refers to a wheelchair at the top of the stairs--it's a very scary scene and it's what dh was scaring me with when he turned off the lights. Bad R, very bad R!)

And speaking of GC Scott--the best version ever of A Christmas Carol is the one that stars Scott as Scrooge. He is superb!
