      When a Stranger Calls Reviews

      Middling suspense tale.

      Full Review | Original Score: C+ | Aug 11, 2021

      Full Review | Original Score: C | Feb 18, 2012

      It's a safe dumb film for safe dumb audiences.

      Full Review | Apr 29, 2009

      Amateurish direction by Simon West ("Laura Croft: Tomb Raider") contributes to the utter failure of this pathetic update of the original film of the same title.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/4 | Jul 14, 2007

      If you've seen either Black Christmas or Halloween, there's nothing new here: the hyped-up score keeps telling us we ought to be scared, but the suspense feels mechanical and fake.

      Full Review | Jun 24, 2006

      No plot, no originality, no stars -- and no reason for you to go and see this crap.

      Full Review | Original Score: 1/5 | May 27, 2006

      ...just as needless a remake as one might've expected.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | May 27, 2006

      You know a horror movie's in trouble when the fake scares outweigh the real ones.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | May 16, 2006

      I can't help feeling that this updating could have been a little more imaginative -- the only wrinkle on the basic plot is that it uses mobile phones.

      While teen chillers tend to be exercises in extreme dullness, at least director Simon West tries to wring some suspense out of the scenes here.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | May 12, 2006

      Loud, noisy, flashy but too rarely chilling.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | May 12, 2006

      Atmospheric but generally disappointing thriller, despite a passably tense climax and an eye-catching performance by newcomer Camilla Belle.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | May 12, 2006

      Having abstained from character development and stalling for something to do between calls, the movie dwells in the house's dark corners, plugging plot holes with overzealous sound design.

      This year's "I Know What You Did Last Summer"...You'll be totally immersed and near on the verge of drawing sweat

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Apr 12, 2006

      Não percebe que a premissa é insuficiente para sustentar 90 minutos de duração e, conseqüentemente, o resultado deixa muito a desejar com relação ao original.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Apr 2, 2006 did half the trick for me and for receives half the marks.

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/10 | Mar 24, 2006

      I'll be damned if I can find anything to like

      Full Review | Mar 16, 2006

      This remake of a 1979 thriller starring Carol Kane isn't particularly mysterious ... Unexpectedly, given his background in exploitation dramas, director Simon West doesn't push the horror to the max.

      Long distance information? Get me Hollywood, USA: I've got a rusty ice pick to bury in the gullet of whoever greenlighted this pointless exercise.
