Compliments:
First, to the phone - an ancient black rotary menace. Nice job creepy phone!
Second, at times endearing; at times disturbing; at times threatening phone voice created by Lorna Raver.
Third, to the claustrophobic apartment setting; subdued lighting, shadows and colors; use of sound and environment such as rain to enhance tension.
Fourth, to the actors for their casual naturalistic acting e.g. pauses, conversational dialogue, nuanced everyday behaviors, facial expressions. In particular Lefevre, who was tossed into the role at the last moment and might be well served to use that method for future roles, looked very comfortable. She is a talent that is being wasted in TV spots.

Brief storyline:
Mary moves into an apartment in about 2010 that was inhabited by Rose in 1979. Rose calls Mary from around 1979 which becomes obsessively more frequent. They both acknowledge that their connection is happening for a reason. Both Rose and Mary have issues with males close to them and just in general. "Men don't change ever!" Then Mary suggests to Rose, while thinking of solving her own problems, to "just get rid of him." At this point you see that Rose instantly alters the future by changing the past and more than once.

Spoiler (read when confused after watching the film):
The rotary phone in Puerto Rico in the 70s would not be unusual. Using a phone as a vehicle for the past to communicate with the present is common in film. The phone was shown, in deleted scenes, being found in a box in the pantry coincidentally it was a phone cord used by Rose to hang herself. Rose lived close to where Mary (as a child) lived so she is able to threaten Mary (as a child) as well as people close to her.

This is a great suspense thriller. Rather than relying upon gore, zombies and lots of blood, this film combines wonderful character development, a creative plot and good acting to create a nice film. The movie has an intriguing story line and a crazy ending. Do not listen to the bad reviews. I am sure those viewers wanted to see people get slashed throughout the film. This does not happen. Instead, enjoying this film requires something that is seriously lacking among today's movie viewers and writers: IMAGINATION!

This reminds me of the old Hitchcock stuff. Mary divorces Steve and moves into an apartment. Steve is of questionable character. Mary gets calls from Rose 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.

F-bomb,brief sex scene, no nudity

This is sort of a time slip movie where it appears two parallel universes are overlapping.

Here's the scoop. Mary moves into an apartment to get away from her soon to be ex-husband. She starts getting threatening calls from a gal called Rose who might be running on a different calendar. She seems to be tuned in around the Viet Nam war. She meets a new guy. He seems nice. Talks with the building's janitor. He seems nice. But do they really exist? And Rose keeps calling as creepy things start to happen. Now Rose is trying to kill her but not her the adult. Her the child.

This is messy. I was interested to begin with, but as the facets of the story started to come together it began to annoy me. I didn't think it hung together. I suppose I have to compare it to the movie "Triangle." But there you see the different, overlapping worlds. Here, the other world only exists on the other end of the phone. What if Mary saw herself in danger as a child instead of just hearing her? And, though maybe I missed it, what does Mary's abusive husband have to do with anything? Is he just there to pose an immediate threat? And then there are the old photos with the creepy, indistinct, images of Rose in the background. That's getting tired.

It was shot and cut OK. The perfromances were decent enough. The sound design was overwrought. There is a problem with any soundtrack that makes itself that noticeable.

I can't say this hurt to watch, but I wouldn't put it at the top of my viewing list.

THE CALLER is about a woman named Mary Kee (Rachelle Lefevre), who has just moved into a run-down apartment. She is in the middle of a bitter divorce from her uber-macho, violent husband. She has no chance to get settled into her new digs before a strange phone call starts her down a path of dark mystery and murderous events. Mary finds herself in the midst of a nightmarish, time / space anomaly. This movie plays like a superb, extra-long episode of THE TWILIGHT ZONE, w/ some modern, more disturbing twists thrown in. Stephen Moyer (RESTRAINT, THE BARRENS, OPEN HOUSE, TV's TRUE BLOOD) is great as Mary's hapless love interest. Luis Guzman plays a gardener who knows important secrets about Mary's predicament. If you enjoy horror built on suspense and bizarre situations, then you should watch THE CALLER right now!...
