Based on the infamous urban legend and featuring one of the most famous and gripping opening scenes in horror movie history (homaged by Wes Craven in the opening of Scream), Fred Walton’s When a Stranger Calls is a masterclass in suspense that has rarely been equalled.
A student babysitter has her evening disturbed when the phone rings. On the other end of the line an anonymous caller asks, ‘have you checked the children lately?’ So begins a series of increasingly terrifying and threatening calls that lead to a shocking revelation.
