Verdict on The Caller

The Caller is a horror thriller following a customer service agent working from home. She finds herself dealing with an aggressive caller, leading to her being threatened. However, things get worse when the caller learns her true identity and threatens to find her.

This is a horror thriller that feels like it took Sidney’s life from Scream 3 and made even more with that concept. It shows how the new remote working in certain fields could become more dangerous for the employee. While also using the idea that being stalked in a remote home can have plenty of suspense. This does have flaws, as it does feel like we could have seen more protection for the employee or at least looked to address what happened. However, that would have taken away from the suspense of the bigger story. This does everything to keep us on edge, with Sarah Alexandra Marks carrying the movie with her performance.

Final ThoughtsThe Caller is a tense suspenseful thriller.
