The Caller movie scene

A mysterious woman rings up Rachelle Lefevre in The Caller.

The thriller-horror movie The Caller places its thrills and horrors in a decidedly supernatural context.

The film focuses on troubled divorcee Mary Kee (Rachelle Lefevre, the Twilight series), who is tormented by a series of sinister phone calls from a mysterious and increasingly angry woman. When the stranger reveals she’s calling from the past, Mary tries to break off contact. But the caller doesn’t like being ignored, and she looks for a different and even more diabolical form of torture … and revenge.

Stephen Moyer (TV’s True Blood) and Luis Guzmán (Arthur) also star.

Directed by Matthew Parkhill (Dot the I), The Caller sounds like it’s following in the tradition of a slew of killer phone call movies like When a Stranger Calls and One Missed Call, alongside the classic Twilight Zone episode “Night Call.”

After playing a handful of not-so-prominent film festivals (including the Gulf Film Festival in the United Arab Emirates and Switzerland’s Neuchâtel International Fantasy Fest), The Caller was screened in a couple of U.S. theaters in August, 2011.

The DVD includes the following bonus features:

  • deleted scenes
  • alternate ending
  • interview with director Matthew Parkhill
