Rotory Telephone flick does not connect with the subject matter
11 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a 1964 episode of the television series Twilight Zone entitled "The Night Call" the director is able to make the telephone seriously creepy. It is too bad that the director of this film is not able to do the same. It is too bad, because the idea for the film is a solid one. It is not the same to have a great idea and to be able to express that idea in a uniquely visual medium as film. My understand is that the director was a novelist, but novels are, by their nature, internal. The struggle must come from within. Here, in this film, it is hard to feel like there is any real jeopardy. The director is not the only one asleep at the wheel however, the actors seem to be sleepwalking throughout the picture. Perhaps it was just another pay day for the cast and crew. I know that the director could have fixed the pacing during the editing process, but that would be too much to ask from such a novice film maker. So whoever edited this film should be ashamed of themselves. The lighting and camera work is also horrible. I would recommend that you miss this one and check out the Twilight Zone episode I mention above.
