Suspenseful in a Funny Way
20 September 2002 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

This 1972 TV movie is one of those few TV films from those days that is still broadcast today. Well, I taped it back in 1991, but anyway, the film is so corny, with a very "Okay, sure" plot, but it still has good suspenseful moments (in a strange way, you never know where the caller is or if he's watching the answerers---spooky), and Douglas is quite unique in an early role. Well worth a watch, or a few watches.
