First of all, When a Stranger Calls was one of the most dull, bad, and typical remakes I've ever seen. It was scary at some parts, but the plot was so bad, and the actress, Camilla Belle, acted horribly, and to obivious. She only stared into space emotionless, and I never saw the terror in herself at all. I never believed that she was scared. That's what made it too stupid, and unrealistic.......

Action: 1/3 + Comedy: 0/2 + Good vs Evil: 0/1 + Love/Sex: 0.5/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 + Plot: 0/1 + Music: 0.5/1 = 2.5/10 or 25%. Nothing in this is good and horror-thrillers should at least be scary or tense, perhaps even interesting. This is none of the above. Should only be viewed in order to understand EVERYTHING a movie should not be.

Okay, my problem with the movie is that...I didn't trust this movie. It scared me too many times with things that weren't supposed to be scary at all (stupid cat, grumble grumble). Then, when it was supposed to be frightening, I was spent. It would have been so much better if it just scared me when appropriate.

Dammit...hang up already will ya!!!

"When a Stranger Calls Back" stars Camilla Belle as teenager Jill Johnson who is going through a teenage crisis, after her boyfriend cheats on her with her best friend. After running up a hefty phone bill, she has to resort to babysitting the kids of a wealthy couple to pay the bill. Jill soon begins to receive anonymous phone calls which at first she assumes it is simply a prankster but she gets increasingly scared when the calls persist. Upon calling the police, she is advised to keep the caller on line for over a minute to trace the call. You can imagine her horror when the police calls her back and tells her the call is originating from somewhere within the home. Jill soon realizes that the stalker is playing a sick cat and mouse game with her. Enough thrills and scares to freak you...

Typical Horror Flick

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 ...
