Storyline

The elderly Elva Keen is not too happy when she begins receiving phone calls in the middle of the night. At first the calls are little more that static and her complaints to to local telephone operator, Miss Finch, seem to go unheeded. Over time however, she begins to hear a man's voice but out of fear, tells whoever it is to go away. When Miss Finch reports they've found the problem Elva visits the site only to realize the identity of the caller and that regardless of anything she's said, desperately wants the calls to continue.

Goofs

When Elva is sitting in her car at the cemetery, there's a man's face visible to the left of her head, reflected in one of the car windows, and then it's replaced by a hand twisting something. It is unclear what is being twisted, since the camera isn't moving at the time. See more »

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Miss Elva Keene lives alone on the outskirts of London Flats, a tiny rural community in Maine. Up until now, the pattern of Miss Keene's existence has been that of lying in her bed or sitting in her wheelchair, reading books, listening to a radio, eating, napping, taking medication - and waiting for something different to happen.

"Night Call" Supremely Engrossing T Z episode!
26 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen almost ALL of the original TZ episodes, and this one "Night Call" is always the one I recommend.

Beautifully photographed: Embittered and lonely Elva Keane endures unending telephone night calls from her telephone; The phone becomes an instrument of terror-when Elva is trying to get some sleep you can actually SEE the shadow's of the branches on her face from the trees outside-a beautiful touch! Miss Finch: (The telephonist) "About those call's you say you've been receiving Miss Keane.." Elva: "SAY I've been?"... NO spoilers for those yet to see-the pace and suspense never let up until it's heartbreaking conclusion.
