No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
what makes this film truly stand out is its matching of convoluted plotting to an equally complex morality - where the difference between being a victim and a murderer is but a phone call away.
The Caller delivers tons of thrills, chills, twists, and turns. It may not be perfect, but it's damned effective.
Director Matthew Parkhill seems perfectly suited for a career in any industry except filmmaking, and there's not a single beat of this film that I would describe as 'competent' or 'well-executed.' That's almost impressive.
It all becomes ridiculous, despite an appearance from the excellent Lorna Raver, the malevolent gypsy woman from Drag Me To Hell.
