When a Stranger Calls
When a Stranger Calls is a minimum effort
horror movie that does it just enough to easily scare thirteen year old
girls and unfortunately no one else. However, the brain trust that
created this gem from the 1970's movie were on a winner that actually
made this a sleeper hit, especially with its intended audience.
Simon west (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider) steps into the director's chair to
bring this extremely clichéd horror movie to the big screen that
revolves around the teenage babysitter Jill who is played by the
delightful Camilla Bell. Things go from bad to worse when Jill discovers
that someone is pranking her and when these threats become real, the
action heats up.
Unfortunately the story is a rather hit and miss affair that only gave
this seasoned horror movie veteran the occasional scare, fortunately the
twist at the end makes up for what could of been one of the better
the video and audio quality of this movie are exceptional and match that
with a plethora of interesting special features and those who loved the
movie at the bid screen are in for a mini-treat.
