Rachelle Lefevre impresses in supernatural chiller.
14 September 2011 | by JimmyCollinsSee all my reviews

The Caller is by no means the greatest horror film, nor is it particularly original but it is quite enjoyable, mainly thanks to the wonderful Rachelle Lefevre, she has graduated to leading lady very well in The Caller, let's hope she gets more leading roles more often, she has a great screen presence and is very nice to watch.

The Caller has an interesting premise, newly separated Mary moves into a new apartment to escape the clutches of her douchebag husband, only to be harassed with menacing phone calls from a woman who says she is living in the past, the year 1977 to be exact, this is when the supernatural element pops up and starts to get you thinking.

Parts of this movie are really scary, other parts are slightly awkward, but for most of the film I was genuinely interested in the character of Mary and her quest to uncover the truth about the person who is causing the horror in her life, is it her husband? Is it her new love interest? Is it a monster in the closet? This movie keeps you guessing right up until the conclusion, something a lot of other films are missing, it's not very original, but it's still a surprise I suppose. I just wished the ending lived up to the rest of the movie, which was quite a cut above the usual horror fodder we see of late.

Luis Guzman and Stephen Moyer give solid supporting performances too, it's nice not to see old Bill Compton all broody and serious, and Luiz is just awesome no matter what.

Impressive enough that I'd watch it again I just wish the ending was different. Hopefully on the DVD there are some alternate endings.

I vote for more Rachelle Lefevre in movies. Hooray!
