Round 3 of my 31 Days of Horror. Getting a little bit harder to find some hidden gems and not repeat myself. Next year may take a little twist or a new direction. This year’s list has a few surprises too. But you'll see what they are when you check back every day.
When a Stranger Calls (2006)
Dave Says -
This remake/not-a-remake centers on a babysitter getting threatened by an anonymous caller. I struggle to call this a remake since I saw the original also. This stretches out the phone call part and amplifies it each time. The original was a few calls, which is the most remembered part of it, and moved on to other things later on. This one stays in the house and other things come into play there.
Melanie Says - I agree that this isn't really a remake. Other than sharing the name and a very basic premise this is pretty much a thriller in its own right. Over all not bad for a jump scare thriller - if you are someone who likes jump scare things versus the more gory horror options.
Have you seen it? What did you think? Will you be watching it?
