How do you top When A Stranger Calls? Well, you don't because that's absolutely impossible. How do you equal it? Come out with a sequel that's every bit as entertaining and suspenseful, but do it in different ways. many have said that again this movie like its' predecessor has a terriffic opening and ending with a slow going central piece. Others think the central piece is better here than in the original. I feel that When a Stranger Calls Back is a thrill ride all it's own that builds upon premises and themes that the original helped Hollywood capitalize on in numerous films after the original Stranger. As such a movie it can only do better than all those that followed the original stranger since stranger was the standard. In When a Stranger Calls Back we see a much hardened Jill played by Kane, now an advocate for women taking charge of themselves and not depending on dismissive men around them to keep them safe. while the transformation is a wonderful thing to see, you still feel the presence of the original scared girl that had us so riveted in the first movie. In comparison, our young heroine in "Back" that Kane's character Jill befriends never really manages to push the button of that nerve Kane so brilliantly did in the first movie, she only touches on it. Still, Back is an unending supply of suspense and mindplay that keeps you just as riveted as the original did. The climax is more reminiscent of the brilliant Wait Until Dark, but is just as intense as the original When a Stranger Calls. All in all, When a Stranger Calls Back is a must see thrill ride that is equally as great as the first, but has terror that is more distributed than concentrated. 5.5 stars

Fantastic movie! This is the sequel to the original When a Stranger Calls back, and it did not disappoint. I think it might have even surpassed the first movie!
A total guilty pleasure. Not an amazing movie, but love Carol Kane
