Ghost Canyon

'The Caller'
(Malcolm McDowell, Madolyn Smith, et al / DVD / NR / 2011 / MGM)

Overview: The night is long and tension thick as a strange visitor finds his way into the home of a lone woman. The erotic mood builds as undertones of fear quietly begin to surface as a series of twisted, chilling games ensue.

DVD Verdict: Madolyn Smith plays a young woman staying at a cabin in the woods, and one night, a man comes to her door asking to use the phone. Yet, you know he has been watching her for quite some time, so the scenes between them are tense from then on.

Each day after that, she sees him, and they have these very interesting confrontations. Their interaction - which I am giving nothing away about - is gripping, and sometimes, you wonder which one is really crazy.

When the climax of the movie came, the movie got extremely tense, but then it took this weird twist that, though it was a scary idea, came across sort of dumb. Or at least at first. Once it fleshes out a little more, you will either be sort of lost on what kind of movie this is supposed to be, or you will be quite interested.

By the end, I thought the idea was very inventive, though not very fleshed out. But when first revealed, I was ready to forget the 90% of truly scary film. I say, see this movie. It will keep you guessing on what's going on until the end, and I guarantee you'll never suspect it. Overall, a good movie. This is a Full Screen presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
