Good and Scary TV Thriller
1 April 2004 | by (Fort Worth, Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw this on TV sometime around 1995 and was very impressed. In CALLING THE SHOTS, Redgrave plays a female television journalist who gets into a very scary kind of trouble over one of her stories. She receives threats and packages containing very provocative material. Before long she finds that this mysterious someone is stalking her. When the police get involved (useless as they always prove to be in these thrillers) it's discovered that her apartment has been fitted with bugging devices and hidden cameras. This thing never loses steam, but builds juicily towards the intense conclusion. Redgrave is excellent as the reporter trying to cope with an unnerving situation. The shocks are all well timed, too. CALLING THE SHOTS is a haunting and memorable mini-series that really should be seen.
