4.0 out of 5 stars "Frequency" but with a darker edge... 23 Jan 2012
By Andrew
Format:DVD
Now my good film friend was telling me about The Caller for a long time. Saying it was great film and with original idea....so being a fan of supernatural or Sc-fi like stories. I decided to check out and see for myself and man! Is this great little film :) I think Rachelle Lefevre was surprisely good and a pretty good actress to be honest, forgive her Twilight she's this much better in this film. Stephen Moyer is also a great actor playing the very nice guy John Guidi, it's really good to see him outside "True Blood" with playing a different character. The storyline starts off very slow for the first 50mins, I guess it's to show more of characters and get to know them with their problems in day to day life, Rachelle's character as just got divorce and shows her moving on with getting the new apartment. Things get much weirder as a mystery woman is called her house phone, as the story goes on this mystery person keeps calling.....we find out she's calling from 1977 in the past and that's all I'm going to say lol if you have watched "Frequency" then your love this film, it following the same lines. The last 40 mins of the film is truly brilliant and original!! The ending is really shocking and I would personal buy this film, for 5 budget!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really liked it... 29 Jan 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Best 'Butterfly Effect' since the original 'Butterfly Effect'. Wonderful idea, this one keeps you guessing a long time before taking a detour and heading towards a rewarding collision in the last few minutes. A joyride of a mystery thriller. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON... 8 July 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This reminds me of the old Hitchcock stuff. Mary (Rachelle Lefevre) divorces Steve(Ed Quinn) and moves into an apartment. Steve is of questionable character. Mary gets calls from Rose (Lorna Raver) asking for Bobby. Rose claims she lives in the 1970's. At first she thinks a friend of Steve's is behind this. Her and Rose become semi-friends. Weird things start to happen. Whatever changes Rose makes to the pantry in the 1970's materializes in the present day. This really spokes out Mary. Steven violates his restraining order and Mary gets help from her French teacher. Upon doing some research she discovers a Rose really did live there. Is this supernatural or an elaborate hoax?

The film hooks you from the first phone call. You can't wait for the phone to ring. Then at some point, you don't want the phone to ring. But it does...
Excellent writing. Excellent film. Good intensity.

I had very little expectations from this film. It didn't look like it had much of a budget and no actors that I'd heard of (okay, so I sort of recognised the main woman from Twilight, but that was about it). However, in this case, less is slightly more (or at least slightly more than the average dross that infests modern horror films).

I wouldn't call The Caller a horror, more of a supernatural thriller. It's about a single woman (aren't they all?) who gets some mysterious phone calls. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but it presents a pretty creepy premise which finds her trapped in a spiralling cycle of torture and paranoia from a very nasty supernatural adversary.

The Caller is a `slow burner.' This is why it's probably not for everyone. Nothing too out of the ordinary happens in the first half and I can see a lot of people giving up before it really gets going. However, the second act cranks it up a gear and the torment really begins. There are no major scares or gore to speak of; it's more a case of inescapable mental torture.

If you can put up with your films a little slower than normal and without any action, effects or gore then give it a go - all performances better than your average horror/supernatural flick and a slightly different premise which really works.

I really enjoyed this film. It was creepy and great for anyone who likes suspense rather than gore. It kept me interested all the way through. Loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Is Bobby There? 7 Feb 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Caller grabs you immediately and leaves you wondering what will happen next, for the entirety of the film. The plot is different to a lot of other modern thriller/horror movies, and I found it very refreshing and enjoyable to watch. Not the best film I've ever seen, but definitely not the worst!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gave me the eebeejeebies...Remake this Film! 22 Nov 2012
Format:DVD
Ok it is far from perfect - a number of cliche moments early on with the eerie sound effects to build up the tension...but then! This story develops into quite an original scare fest and had me nervy on edge with the spine tingling. It goes in a direction that whilst one could say had plot holes in retropect(which I won't stay in this review as I don't want to spoil it) are quite shocking and mind blowing. The less you know about this film the better. Worth watching. Don't expect too much and probably best to rent than buy and generally a three star film but four plus stars in the scare department.

I think this film should be remade and with tweaking,a bigger budget and some reworking could be a classic.
