Don't pick up that phone...

The Caller review

Twilight’s Rachelle Lefevre and True Blood’s Stephen Moyer swap fangs for phones in Matthew Parkhill’s Twilight Zone-ish mystery, which started life as a short and should’ve stayed that way.

Writer Sergio Casci dials up a nifty time-warp pitch: fleeing an abusive ex, Lefevre’s divorcee is spooked in her designer-gloomy flat by freaky landline calls from a woman 30 years ago. Is she mad? Haunted?

Teasing ambiguities give way to slasher twists that confuse the slender plot that Moyer’s love interest manages to explain on a napkin.
