The Call is a thriller that works tremendously for the duration of the titular 'call.' The minute that the call ends, it spirals into an avalanche of horror/thriller film clichés that results in disastrously bad and an unintentionally comedic climax.
Hi, I'd like to order an abduction thriller set around the 911 emergency call centre in Los Angeles. Sure, would you like a psycho with that? Ah yes, and while we're at it can I upsize to the hero being ...er, a heroine ... and black. Done
A 911 flick that's actually 341--3 movies 4 the price of a bad 1. The psychological thriller rushes; the psycho-horror scrapes the bottom of the barrel of titillation; the quick ending burner-phones in any remaining character development and plausibility.
A high-concept thriller that certainly has the potential to self-destruct... But genre specialist Brad Anderson gives it a taut, low-budget energy that keeps it pulsing throughout its entire running time.
