Not problem-free, but effective at times
“When A Stranger Calls” is a thriller that, while not perfect, does overall deliver a lot of chills. The opening sequence is the most memorable part – while you will guess the surprise twist in this segment long before it happens, the sequence is masterfully directed so it comes across as creepy all the same. The climatic scene, while a little short, also delivers a jolt.

While the opening and closing are well done, the middle portion of the movie has a problem. It’s not only very slow, not much happens to advance the plot. Still, this middle segment often has a moody feeling that fits well with the rest of the movie, and Tony Beckley’s performance as the psycho is a good one.

By the way, while the movie was rated “R” when it was first released, most viewers in this day and age will find that rating a little harsh. By today’s standards, the movie deserves a PG-13 rating. Maybe even a PG rating.

“The phone call is coming from inside the house!”
Babysitter Carol Kane is terrorized by a madman who keeps calling, asking her if she’s checked the children. When she calls the police, they say they’ll investigate….. and eventually tell her that the call is coming from inside the house.

I don’t know how that worked in a day and age of only landlines and few homes with more than one telephone line. The first twenty minutes of this is a model of terror, based on the modern urban myth that Jan Brunvand calls “The Babysitter And The Man Upstairs”. Although the 1950 murder of Janett Christman is sometimes cited as a source of this story, Professor Brunvand’s researches have tracked many of these stories to antique sources; I had the pleasure of pointing out to him that an early version of “The Wedding Photo” appeared in Shakespeare’s TWELFTH NIGHT.

Scholarly musings aside, this is a well produced little shocker, with a cast that includes Ron O’Neal and Colleen Dewhurst. It’s a definitely a must-see for those with a taste for this sort of movie.
