REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..instead, the movie's 90 minutes of effective, grueling, increasingly ugly, eventually ridiculous suspense..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“..The Call cribs from so many other psychological thrillers that it might as well be called "The Girl With the Lovely Bones Cellular Silence of the Lambs''..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..as much as the film tries to extend itself beyond the boilerplate thriller formula - distressed damsel, twisted psycho, clock ticking - a flawed script and a less than persuasive villain undermine the effort..”
by Bruce Demara [Toronto Star]
