Also, I didn't arrange this list in any special order. They're listed as they came to me.
UPDATE: Added a few more actresses, most of them were criminally omitted the first time through. Thanks for the feedback on the list. If an actress isn't on the list and should be, just let me know.
These are the women who embrace all the above. I am proud to reveal the 60 beautiful faces you'll be seeing in the coming future in both cinema and television.
Let's begin by introducing Hollywood's number 1 Hottest Commodity...
Out of pure laziness, I only wrote my little critique of the first six actresses. I'll add to the other four when I'm more motivated.
The Caller (2011)
Flawed, but surprisingly effective psychological thriller
So, I came across "The Caller" the other night while browsing through Netflix. I was bored, so I gave it a chance. What I got was 90 minutes of surprising entertainment. The film stars Rachelle Lefevre (Twilight) as a Mary, a divorcée who is trying to move on from a (presumably) abusive marriage. She moves into a apartment complex and meets a nice enough neighbor named George played by the always reliable Luis Guzman. All is fairly normal until Mary starts receiving phone calls from a mysterious woman named Rose (Lorna Raver from Drag Me To Hell). It starts out innocently enough, but soon takes a weird and haunting turn. It seems Rose is calling from a phone in the year 1979 and is able to disrupt present. (Imagine if Frequency/The Butterfly Effect and Psycho had a baby) You totally buy into Rose's slow build from innocent/vulnerable into psychotic/vindictive. The cat and mouse game between Mary and Rose is the films' meat and potatoes. Very well acted and very tense.
What I like most about The Caller is the atmosphere and tension. Director Matthew Parkhill and writer Sergio Casci did a admirable job of establishing both. Another person who was pitch perfect in this was Lorna Raver! My goodness, this woman's voice is on the same level as Roger Jackson from the Scream series. A perfect blend of casual and creepiness. The lead played by Rachelle Lefevre was very convincing. I've only seen her in Twilight in a role that didn't do much for me. In this, Rachelle showed range as an actress, and she showed that she could carry a movie.
All in all, the acting was surprising solid, and the story (though derivative) had enough little wrinkles to entertain.
What I didn't like was the logic, which was absent at times. The information that Mary freely gives to Rose comes off as out-right stupid. There are also a few other head scratchers that causes a slight pause, but doesn't fully take you out of the story.
All and all, The Caller was an entertaining and effective psychological thriller. Too good for the direct-to-video treatment, IMO. With a few tweaks to the story, it could've been a sleeper hit in theaters.
