Did You Know?


During filming of the scene in which Trisha tries to reach her phone while being attacked by the Madman, the script called for actor Mark Irvingsen to crush the phone with his foot. Unfortunately, Mr. Irvingsen missed his mark, and instead stomped on Rebekah Kochan's hand, forcing production to be halted while she was taken for medical treatment. See more »


Through most of the film, Trisha wears furry boots. After the killer captures her, we see her tied up in the basement with bare feet, but when she frees herself and runs from the house, Trisha is wearing her furry boots again. See more »

Better than I expected for a ripoff movie
28 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is one of those movies from the studio known to put out similarly titled and themed DVD's to conveniently coincide with the real studio release movie. In this case we get When a Killer Calls, ripping on the Sony remake of When A Stranger Calls (2006). The movies are about an isolated teen babysitter getting terrorized by a prank caller. While Stranger was rated PG-13, Killer is unrated offering up graphic violence, nudity and language. Killer is obviously low budget, with passable-at-best special effects for the gore, though the acting is surprisingly decent for the most part. The storyline differs just enough from Stranger to keep them from getting sued, but it's your standard cliché slasher fare. I was expecting MUCH worse though.
