For The Asylum, actually When a Killer Calls is not that bad
25 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

By all means it is far from great, but compared to the usual schlock from The Asylum, along with I Am Omega When a Killer Calls was actually tolerable. It does have its flaws certainly, most acting is not good, often pretty bad, though Robert Buckley's eyes are gorgeous. They were disadvantaged by that the characters really got on my nerves, not because they were stereotypical but they were made to do irritating things and just weren't that likable. The script also is left wanting, a lot of it has a corny and senseless quality to it, and the story aside from being very derivative has one too many moments where it is predictable and unexciting particularly in the middle. The stalking sequences are on the silly side. However, it doesn't look too bad, you don't expect much from The Asylum in this regard but it does at least have a decently atmospheric feel to it. Even the effects were creepy. The killings are bloody with some suspense too and the finale is truly harrowing. The killer, played by Mark Irvingson in the best performance of the movie, is quite sadistic and exudes menace, if there was any character that was at least convincing it was certainly him. Rebekah Kochan was also believable as the babysitter. All in all, not that bad for The Asylum. 5/10 Bethany Cox
