The Caller

The Caller ★★★

Writer Michael Sloan and director Arthur Seidelman had long careers in TV, and although it wasn't one this plays exactly like a forgotten TV movie that a buddy of yours describes their hazy memory of in an effort to get some help remembering the title. Starts our like a dirt-cheap DEATHTRAP or SLEUTH knockoff before moving into...other territory. Even if the only real goal here is a twist, rest assured it's a good one, delightfully and completely out of nowhere. Lots of appropriately hammy work from the two leads.
