It all becomes ridiculous, despite an appearance from the excellent Lorna Raver, the malevolent gypsy woman from Drag Me To Hell.

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.

Over-stylized and narratively undercooked, The Caller treats its Twilight Zone-style conceit for dim thrills.

Audience Reviews for The Caller

Enjoyed this. Really quite creepy. Rachelle is actually a better actress than i gave her credit for. She is very convincing as a recently divorced woman who has started over and starts to receive strange phone calls from a woman named Rose who may, or may not be from the past.
Rose was also surprisingly menacing for a character you only see briefly in this, who sounds like a sweet old lady.
Very interesting idea for a horror. One of the better ones I have seen in quite some time.

Well, I watched it all. At first it seemed like an interesting premise, but then things just seemed to get more and more "out there". I feel like I just watched an episode of Twilight Zone....Rachelle Lefevre, Stephen Moyer, and Ed Quinn were good, but good actors aren't always enough. Not a terrible movie, just ok..

Cast: Stephen Moyer, Rachelle Lefevre, Luis Guzmán, Ed Quinn, Lorna Raver, Gladys Rodríguez, Alfredo De Quesada, Brian Tester, Grace Connelly

Director: Matthew Parkhill

Summary: This spooky thriller tracks the private nightmare of Mary Kee, a divorcée who begins receiving disturbing telephone calls from a woman she doesn't know. After engaging the stranger initially, Mary tries to extricate herself -- with horrific results.

My Thoughts: *throwing hands up in the air stomping feet*

"I don't know how I tend to keep on picking such craptastic films. A scary film is not suppose to PUT YOU TO SLEEP! Where are the good old scary films gone? Doesn't anyone put any effort into these films anymore?
OK. So this may have a few spoilers.
I don't understand the ending what so ever. Why didn't Rose kill the younger Mary Kee in the past instead of coming to the future to kill the grown up Mary Kee? How come Mary Kee never called the cops on her ex who was obviously not abiding by the restraining order? It is just a mess of a movie that made not whole lot of sense and that took too damn long to get anywhere. Definitely skip this one."
