the caller

The Caller – Recently divorced Mary moves into a run down super-seventies style apartment and begins receiving calls from what appears to be a either a crank or perhaps the creation of an over-stressed and fragile mind.  When she realizes this is no joke, Mary attempts to end the relationship with dire consequences.  Starring Rachelle Lefevre and Stephen Moyer, a nifty little thriller with some plot holes I’m willing to forgive as there are some truly creepy moments and the underlying premise is a fun one.  Did not like the voice acting for the young girl on the phone (can’t say more because it would be a spoiler).  Good acting overall and a lovely cameo and voice work by Lorna Raver (Drag Me to Hell).  Very dark and atmospheric, would work really well as a play.
