When a Stranger Calls (2006) 
Typical Horror Flick
1/4 stars

When a Stranger Calls was one of the few movies that I really knew I wasn't going to like before I watched it. Low and behold, I was right. Look guys, another crappy horror movie remake.

The story surrounds a girl who keeps getting phone calls from a guy who wants to kill her for the hell of it. There's no real motive, he just wants to kill because he can. That idea died the first time they made a movie like that, so there's no originality there. Along with the bland story line comes bland characters, horrible writing, and the lack of a good, in depth plot. (We'll be lucky if a remake ever has one of those, let's be honest.) But hey, there's good news, the actors are actually pretty good. Despite bad script writing, the acting actually wasn't too bad. That's not something that you see everyday, let's be honest.

So, overall, avoid the film, unless you want to waste time watching a horror movie that isn't scary, with acting that's alright. This is a film you can't blame the actors for the suck, they did good. Good for them, they got their money's worth... hopefully. They deserve all the money they can get for this movie because they acted well through bad scenes, horrible writing, and one of the worst plots in film.
