Camilla Belle almost turned down the role of Jill due to her personal dislike for horror films. Simon West convinced her that he was going for a more psychological thriller, so she agreed to do the movie. She had to turn down a role in another horror remake Black Christmas (2006) due to commitments to this film. See more »

How can ANYONE EVER say that When a Stranger Calls is in any way a good movie.
It is probably the worst movie I have ever seen, no lie.
Actress was terrible.
There was hardly any speech. Only slight gasps and crys of fear as the cat pops out behind the corner.
Hears a brilliant idea. DON'T PICK UP THE PHONE! You'd think after repeatedly getting creepy phone calls you wouldn't continue picking up the phone my god! And oh of course the eerie music adds to the movie. NO! It makes it completely dull because every time something slightly scary DOES in fact happen, the watcher has been expecting it for minutes. Plus it is never the killer. Only the cat.
I have no clue how the writers managed to stretch this film into 80 minutes long, BUT THEY DID IT.
