There's little to differentiate this high-pitched screamer from a particularly feverish Law and Order rerun.

Crude as it is, The Call milks its jump scares and don't-go-down-to-the-basement tension for all they're worth. See it with a full house, if you absolutely must see it at all.

An effectively creepy thriller about a 911 operator and a young miss in peril... a model of low-budget filmmaking.

Has the mild impact of a special episode of a network crime series.

For the most part ... a tense, extreme-jeopardy thriller that delivers the intended goods.

A tense and efficient little thriller right up to the moment when Halle Berry, a 911 operator, decides to leave her desk.
