A very well written script.
24 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a crisis in Wellsville. For the last twenty-seven years a pay phone has been ringing and no one has the ability to answer the continuous ringing. The ringing is so strong that it has cause people to go insane and that is the reason that Ellen has set up a hot-line for people worried about the ringing phone.

It just so happens that Little Pete is bound to stop the madness by answering the phone. Pete and four of his friends set off to stop the ringing only to have people drop out because of some unknown force. But as we will soon find out the phone is a call for love being made to someone in the very town of Wellsville.

This is a simple story that was made interesting by the special writing of the script. Think about it, a pay phone that has not been answered in years-- sounds stupid but the way the story is written, the phone is more than just a call. An interesting story that was enjoyable to watch.
