Critic Reviews for The Caller

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

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.

September 6, 2011

The Caller delivers tons of thrills, chills, twists, and turns. It may not be perfect, but it's damned effective.

September 4, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

August 26, 2011 | Rating: F | Full Review…

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

Audience Reviews for The Caller

Matthew Parkhill shows us once again that he is one of the worst directors in the history of Cinema with this ridiculous atrocity that doesn't make any sense when you stop to think about it for two seconds and is equally full of clichés and devoid of actual thrills.

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.
