The Call is a middling homage-horror. Set in 1987, it’s dripping with the same nostalgia that propelled Stranger Things into popularity, although the movie is much more a tribute to the likes of Wes Craven than of Steven Spielberg. Following a group of small-town friends, as they try to survive the night in the home of a sinister couple, it starts slow but comes through in the back half with some hearty scares, as the teens, played by Chester Rushing, Erin Sanders, Mike Manning, and Sloane Morgan Sigel, respectively, go up against genre power couple Lin Shaye and Tobin Bell (Jigsaw himself). The title refers to Edward Cranston’s (Bell) demand that the teens take turns dialing a number and staying on the line for one minute. If they succeed, he’ll pay them handsomely and forgive them for the torment they caused his now-deceased wife, Edith Cranston (Shaye). There’s a catch, of course, which provides the tension and terror as the phone trills. Whether or not the movie is worth picking up is your call, however.
