Trivia

The initial idea of the film came from a joke in 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' where one character pitches a story about a phone that kills people. The pitch is met quickly with ridicule about "...How can a mobile phone have an agenda and kill people..." and that all you would need to do is to take the battery out. See more »

Full of laughs and surprises

Fantastic idea. We use cellphones all day, what if they could kill you? Well, they do kill you but that is another review. Hellphone is a well executed film that really revels in the story and ideas. The film has a enjoyable lightness to it even though it moves like lightning. I found myself constantly laughing or chuckling to myself.

The story might take place in a small town but it doesn't reuse the tired-old clichés. People are connected, they love their technology, it is a chaotic vibrant environment. My favorite moments in this film are when people are unable to get off their phones even though they know it could kill them. I see this everyday when I drive to work. It is funny scary kind of stuff.

Overall, it is an entertaining movie that speaks to a lot of issues that are currently cropping up. The fight scenes towards the end are awesome! I hope they make a sequel.
