Trivia

The initial idea of the film came from a joke in 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' where one character pitches a story about a phone that kills people. The pitch is met quickly with ridicule about "...How can a mobile phone have an agenda and kill people..." and that all you would need to do is to take the battery out. See more »

A great independent feature length horror / comedy movie
19 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was my first experience with a 'shoestring budget' film, and I was very impressed. The movie starts off with suspense and keeps it going until the very end. A healthy dose of comedy keeps the laughs coming - the coroner was my favorite character.

The three main characters (sexy assistant police chief, witty computer technician, and ignorant coroner) work together well. Scenes in the police office, high school gym, and lake give the film it's hometown touch. I felt right at home watching the possessed cell phone call it's victims.

A topic we can all relate to - answering a phone - brings the 'horror' to everyone. The comedy of a phone walking along the street and stoner kids helping it along - cracked me up. The jokes throughout the movie keep it light - not overly 'horrifying'.

Summary - this movie has it all, support a North Carolina artist and go see it twice.
