Trivia

The climax of the movie was filmed using a taller, thinner stuntman in place of actor Mark Irvingsen. This was necessary as Mr. Irvingsen was forced to leave the production when filming ran a week behind schedule. To help disguise this fact, the stuntman wore a hooded sweatshirt and a scene was quickly filmed in which solvent is thrown in the Madman's face, badly disfiguring him. See more »

Goofs

Through most of the film, Trisha wears furry boots. After the killer captures her, we see her tied up in the basement with bare feet, but when she frees herself and runs from the house, Trisha is wearing her furry boots again. See more »

Better than I expected for a ripoff movie
28 July 2008 | by dpags01See all my reviews

This is one of those movies from the studio known to put out similarly titled and themed DVD's to conveniently coincide with the real studio release movie. In this case we get When a Killer Calls, ripping on the Sony remake of When A Stranger Calls (2006). The movies are about an isolated teen babysitter getting terrorized by a prank caller. While Stranger was rated PG-13, Killer is unrated offering up graphic violence, nudity and language. Killer is obviously low budget, with passable-at-best special effects for the gore, though the acting is surprisingly decent for the most part. The storyline differs just enough from Stranger to keep them from getting sued, but it's your standard cliché slasher fare. I was expecting MUCH worse though.
