Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Scary Good Fun !

WHEN A KILLER CALLS a TheAsylum release Starring Rebekah Kochan and Chriss Anglin "MOVIEMAKER magazine recently said this about TheAsylum movie paradigm,to piggy back your film upon other studios marketing-commercials-perhaps threats of lawsuits This is why you can have 3 War Of The Worlds( including TheAsylum w/C.Thomas Howell) make money." This is a brutal movie,We can blame the success of SAW and HOSTEL,They must be painful to sell to today's teen audience(Which a whole other article). Guestar was surprised how smart some scenes are,The phone has not been this abused since SCREAM. We were glad to see Chriss Anglin again,and the lead was impressive-REBEKAH KOCHAN,the lady is so sweet and strong in When A Killer Calls,This is most impressive after the mean-spirited friend she played in EXORCISM:THE POSSESSION OF GAIL BOWERS. Hey,Are we wrong or are all text messages on phone props-wasted. The special effects by Mili Rendler are brutal,yet real looking.Faces are contorted in a cutting fashion,and Hands get hammered(NOT DRUNK ).Two other performances we liked are Mark Irvingsen as the suspect and Sarah Hall as the other girl,Mark comes on as time-bombish and Sarah is oddly compelling to the viewer.Peter Mervis ( interviewed last time)delivers a smoother film than DEAD MEN WALKING,his first TheAsylum picture and shows the learning of a craft.
