Great anthology film.
2 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently had the privilege to attend a theatrical screening of this film. Right off it was obvious to me that Jim Haggerty loves what he is doing. He put great care into the making of When Death Calls. While there is some devious humor, it is never to the point where it distracts from the horror or destroys the viewer's suspension of disbelief.

Characters are developed so that their individuality stands out. Of course no matter how well written a script may be, the characters cannot work without strong performances by the actors and actresses involved. Mr. Haggerty was wise to have cast Suzi Lorraine in a lead role, but everyone put in their best effort. Actress Nathalie Bryant had a role not everyone could pull off, yet she made it work wonderfully.

Writing this as someone who grew up on Amicus anthology horror films I can recommend it to anyone else who is a fan of the genre. The film is full of surprises and beautiful women, well edited and well paced. I look forward to seeing more of Jim Haggerty's work.
