Don't waste your time!
29 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's Halloween, and sexy DJ Roxy Richards is making her scariest broadcast yet - but she may not realize how scary things are going to get when an old friend calls in... Running the gamut of horror, WHEN DEATH CALLS is like a two hour horror film festival, except it's only 90 minutes long and not so good! Starring legendary scream queens Suzi Lorraine and Tina Krause!

For a 40-something chick, Tina doesn't look half bad and she strip naked in the first 2 minutes of the movie for no reason whatsoever. A bit plump but then aren't most MILFS?

Cut to some other younger thinner brunette who can't act at all, excepts she's naked too. In her bed. Without covers. And she's cold. Does any of this make sense?

And all these girls (most who for some reason are 20 pounds overweight making them uninteresting) seem to have dreams of a guy coming to kill them. Like the plump girl in a green dress who for some reason has a butchers knife upstairs when a guy in a tux comes to kill her. Who he is is your guess. And why he can walk slowly while she runs in the street but still be right behind her is never explained.

It could be all these overweight girls can't get a guy and the knives are phallic in nature. Who cares? The exposition sucks a big wet one.

Are you getting the picture? The movie unfolds as a bunch of 3 minute stories because there is no plot. The movie is stoopid. Poorly written, poorly acted, poorly directed. There's even a meaningless cat fight at the end with a cow. A huge waste of time.
