Storyline

A suspense thriller set in the world of small town church politics, Dangerous Calling follows the story of Pastor Evan Burke and his wife Nora as they assume leadership of First Baptist Willit Springs after the mysterious death of the previous pastor. Eager to get to know the new pastor, Miss Pat, the church's controlling widow-woman, invites Evan and Nora to stay with her while she has the parsonage renovated. Left alone at Miss Pat's beautiful home in the mountains of North Georgia, Nora begins to suspect that Miss Pat's extremely sheltered adult son, Elijah, may have had something to do with the previous pastor's death. Although the story involves Christian characters, Dangerous Calling is not your typical church film. Owing more to Psycho and Misery than Left Behind, Dangerous Calling is sure to keep you on the edge of the pew. In this church the politics can be deadly. Written by Josh Daws

Christian Thriller?
30 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Great film about politics in church. There has never been a pastor hired by a church that didn't encounter some level of entrenched politics. After all, Christians are just people and any time you have relationships you will have friction. Let's just say this movie takes that idea up a notch... who knew taking on a new position would be stepping into the cross hairs, where disagreeing with church politics could be a matter of life and death? Anyone offended by the idea of suspense and Christianity in the same movie really needs to take another look at what is real faith and what is religious piety. Beyond a good suspense movie, this movie has a message for how church politics can hinder the Great Commission.
