‘A stone-cold classic…something every horror hound should see’
‘Agonisingly tense…The caller’s words, with their insistent reference to the children’s safety, cut to a deep anxiety of middle-class America, exposing the dangers that can so easily prowl the shadows…’
Little White Lies
‘A sleek, tricked-out reissue of the still-effective late-1970s chiller that inspired Wes Craven’s Scream’
Following its highly acclaimed Limited-Edition release in 2018 When A Stranger Calls/When A Stranger Calls Back is set for its Standard Edition Blu-ray release complete with a slew of fantastic special features from Second Sight Films this summer.
