Movie Info

Monica Keena (Abby Morgan on television's Dawson's Creek) headlines the direct-to-video psychological thriller Long Distance. She plays Nicole Freeman, an average young woman who walks into a waking nightmare when she accidentally dials a wrong number one evening, "interrupting" a murder-in-progress. The psychopathic perpetrator spots Monica's name and number on the caller I.D., and repeatedly phones her back. He then stages a trail of homicides across the country that lead to Monica's Boston house, and implicates her in each murder. Ivan Martin, Kevin Chapman and Tamala Jones co-star; Marcus Stern directs, from a script by Michael Rasmussen, Shawn Rasmussen and Glenn Cooper.

Audience Reviews for Long Distance

Excrutiatingly overacted on the part of Monica Keena. Not much in the suspense department, and the ending is basically a cop-out. There were not enough clues given to have you make the leap that brings you to that point. Would have been a fair psychological thriller had Keena's acting been toned down a notch and the ending been at least somewhat more believable within the context of the rest of the movie. Give it a pass. You wrote this on 9/10/08.

The film was a winner until a stupid twist ending kills it. It's a shame, because it was a suspenseful thriller until that point. One other flaw is Monica Keena's melodramatic performance. It is a role beyond her acting range.
