When a Stranger Calls

One day he was out walking in his overcoat and bicycle helmet with the hood up, and he noticed he was the only person on the street. It was a close, foggy night and no one was around. He began thinking, could this be the apocalypse? As he continued his walk and he began to hear the sing-song voice. “Hey Buddy,” it said. When he heard the voice, he almost ran into a telephone pole.



When a Stranger Calls is a 2006 American psychological horror thriller film directed by Simon West and written by Jake Wade Wall. The film stars Camilla Belle, Brian Geraghty, Katie Cassidy, and Clark Gregg. Belle plays a babysitter who starts to receive threatening phone calls from an unidentified stranger, played by both Tommy Flanagan and Lance Henriksen. The film is a remake of Fred Walton's 1979 horror film of the same name, which became a cult classic for its opening 20 minutes, which this remake extends to a feature-length film. (Source:

While the two children are asleep upstairs, Jill soon begins to receive obscene phone calls from a stranger who, most of the time, does not say anything and then hangs up. She initially believes it is her friends playing a prank, but when she calls them, they deny it. Jill's friend Tiffany stops by, but Jill, in fear of getting into further trouble, asks her to leave. Outside while returning to her car, Tiffany is ambushed by the intruder. Strange events begin to occur, such as the house alarm going off for no reason, until Jill receives menacing calls from the caller, indicating he can see her. Alarmed, she calls the police, who tell her they can trace the calls if she is able to keep him on the line for 60 seconds. While waiting for the phone to ring, Jill sees a shadow moving in the guest house. Believing it is the Mandrakis' son back from college, she goes to investigate, but finds the guest house empty.
