"What do you want?"

"Your blood all over me."

Decidedly disappointing.
The movie looked promising, but as the events rolled on in a slow, monologuos fashion, I got bored with the storyline easily. Camilla Belle plays Jill Johnson, a high school student who's part of the track team and whose boyfriend, Bobby (Brian Geraghty), seems to be cheating on her (at leas... read more

This movie was a great movie and was far better than the original. In this movie they stretched out the opening scene of the original. There are more characters which makes it more interesting. This movie has more chase scenes in it, unlike the original which basically had one. The set is also a lot more likable. Jill's acting in this one isn't superb, but it's pretty good, and also it seems like ... read more

Description: A teenage girl becomes a demented serial killer's prey in this big-budget remake of the 1979 thriller that became a TV late-show favorite. When a Stranger Calls takes its title and basic premise from the original, which -- for its first 15 minutes or so -- featured Carol Kane as a frazzled babysitter plagued by creepy, invasive phone calls. This time around, the doe-eyed Camilla Belle plays Jill Johnson, a high-schooler dealing with the usual set of crises: an unfaithful boyfriend, a bitchy best friend, and an over-the-limit cell phone bill. In order to pay for the latter, her father (Clark Gregg) has committed her to a babysitt ... (more)

"It has a good climax, but the rest is so boring. It's tedious and after an hour until the killer finally talks, it kills any suspense the film was trying to create."

" Directed by: Simon West ('The Mechanic'(2011), 'Lara Croft: Tomb Raider', 'Con Air') With: Camilla Belle, Katie Cassidy Was the original - When a Stranger Calls (1979) - worth a look? Again, a midly interesting horror flick but it doesn't look really impressive... Was this remake worth a look? It has been a while since I have seen such an uneventful movie. Indeed, for most of the duration, you have Camilla Belle answering the phone and then you have an uninspired confrontation "

An average movie

“Last week, I saw 'The Return' starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, and I was amazed how uneventful and simply boring the whole thing was. While watching this flick, I actually had exactly the same feeling. Indeed, the directing was not bad and Camilla Belle gave a decent performance but what a bore... I mean, during literally the whole thing, Camilla Belle picks up the phone and asks 'Who's there?', that's it... Of course, at the end, there is a confrontation with the serial killer but it was pretty generic stuff. And before that, there is really nothing going on at all. It was rather surprising that they didn't explain anything about the killer but it made the whole thing even more frustrating to watch. To conclude, at least you have to admit that the title doesn't lie but it is a really borin” read more
