Sunday Scares: “Changeling”

Time for some good old Irish Folk horror in today’s Sunday Scares feature…

Fear and superstition take hold of a young family during a time of great hunger in 1879 Ireland.

Ireland-1879. Margaret and Tomas have just begun their lives together with their infant son Oisin, as the threat of a second famine looms heavy over the land.

Margaret is left isolated and alone with the inconsolable Oisin as Tomas sets off to sell his Poitín. On his Journey Tomas gets a glimpse into the harrowing realities beyond their doorstep while Margaret’s mental state deteriorates at home.

Things are not what they seem when Tomas arrives back. The family must fight to overcome their fears and superstitions.
