Goofs

When Beth is in the crawl space under the hospital, she holds her flashlight sideways, casting light on the wall on her left. When they cut to show what she sees as she is crawling, the beam of light is cast in front of her. The scene cuts back and forth between the 2 views, making the mistake very visible. See more »

Terrible!
4 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first saw the trailer for this film I thought "Oh great, another 'When a stranger calls' movie". I had nothing to do so I saw it with some friends. After I watched it I probably had the biggest headache in my entire life. The dialog was hilariously awful, The characters are very unlikable, the "Jump" moments didn't even phase me. And I hated how they tried so hard to make the whole feel of the film creepy and scary(Hence the 'Scary music').

It takes brains to make a good horror movie, and this one has no brains at all. It looks like were not going to be able to fight off any stupid remakes or boring horror movies anytime soon... If your looking for a good laugh or a bad headache, this film might be the one for you.

2/10 stars.
