When a Stranger Calls

(USA, 2006, 84 minutes)

A high school student babysitting at a country house finds herself stalked over the phone by a mysterious stranger who seems to know her every move. Efficient remake of a minor horror classic that effectively keeps only the original’s first third and extends over it a full-length B thriller that does what it is supposed to do without much ado, much helped by a convincing lead and good production values.
