The Call Review

  • HeyUGuys
The hardest part of being a 911 operator, one dispatcher tells us, is that “You don’t know how it ends”. That sense of helplessness is effectively extracted in The Call, the latest thriller from well-versed director Brad Anderson.

The film opens with veteran Lapd 9-1-1 operator Jordan Turner (Berry) taking a variety of

'Criminal Minds' 6.23 Preview: Bodies Buried in the Sand

Next week on "Criminal Minds", what happens in the ocean doesn't always stay in the ocean. The Bau is Florida-bound to investigate bodies which are discovered buried in the ocean floor off Jacksonville, and Morgan is there to help the team.

But the case rattles Morgan when his aunt suspects her missing daughter is one of the victims. Meanwhile, he and Reid learn a trick that is probably used by the killer to make the victim totally compliant.

"Big Sea" is set to air Wednesday, May 11 at 9 P.M. Et/Pt on CBS. Denise Dowse ("The Guardian," "Beverly Hills, 90210") will guest star as Morgan's aunt, Yvonne Burns.
