Trivia

They used two actors to play Mr. Lee, they also did the same for the Stranger in the film When a Stranger Calls (2006) See more »

Goofs

So the woman killed her daughter and then herself and there was no police investigation? Since these idiots put the prank call on the internet, that's evidence that they were involved. A police investigation would have resulted in arrests and charges. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Lee: [on phone] It's all one big joke to you, isn't it? These phone calls that you make? You must feel so powerful, sitting there on your couch, laughing at the pain and embarrassment that you cause. Yeah, it's pretty funny, yeah. Maybe it's time for someone like me to come over there and wipe that smug grin off your face.
Brady Mannion: Okay, well how about when you get here, you suck my dick?
[hangs up]
Brady Mannion: I guess some people really don't like being pranked.

Sometimes you just want an old fashioned slasher
25 February 2017 | by Psy-KoSee all my reviews

Just got done watching it. Really liked it, nothing new but well done on old ideas. Kind of a cross between "I know what you did last summer" and "saw" with maybe a little "are you in the house alone" mixed in. High tension throughout, kept me interested and played out well. Lots of horror tropes that we all know and love (well some of us anyway) Looking at IMDb reviews and a lot of people didn't like it. But they're the same people who only like the artsier horror like Babadook or The Witch. Both good movies but sometimes you just want a good old fashioned slasher, something that doesn't make you think or try and figure it out. This is that movie.

Good production value, good use of lighting, sound etc. Acting was decent and even though the ideas were old I thought the way they were brought about was good. I give it an 8 of 10, good use of an hour and a half on a boring night.
