The past comes calling in The Caller

Horror movies that feature a chilling phone call as the springboard to terror are nothing new. When A Stranger Calls, Don't Answer the Phone and Scream are a just a handful of successful examples. The latest to give the formula a try is the indie fright film The Caller, but it comes with a twist.

Rachelle Lefevre (above) plays a troubled divorcee who is tormented by a series of sinister phone calls from a mysterious woman claiming she comes from the past. Then people from her present start disappearing and, according to the trailer below, things get nasty.

I have to admit, this looks slick. Scary too. And who doesn't like a little Luis Guzman with their terror? We'll know more when The Caller gets a limited theatrical release later this month before it hits VOD and DVD care of Sony Home Entertainment.
