When a Stranger Calls is sometimes called one of the first slasher films – only it’s not a slasher film at all and there were certainly many that came before – in fact, if you want to talk slashing, Psycho would probably be at the top of the list. When a Stranger Calls has no slashing – what it has is pure suspense – there is literally no gore, just some blood in a flashback, but you never see any violence committed. Gore is easy – suspense, pure suspense, is hard. 

One of those movies that makes you wonder what is happening upstairs... are the children okay, when is the last time you looked? “HAVE YOU CHECKED THE CHILDREN?”
