Synopsis for The Call
Set in the fall of 1987, a group of small-town friends must survive the night in the home of a sinister couple after a tragic accident occurs. Needing only to make a single phone call, the request seems horribly ordinary until they realize that this call could change their life…or end it.
“Pairing Tobin and Lin, or Saw’s Jigsaw and Insidious’ Elise Rainier as they’re known to horror fans around the world, brings so much terror to the screen,” said Emmy® Nominated Director Timothy Woodward Jr. “Their chemistry is undeniable, and the power of their scenes splinters off, creating this dark, macabre world these characters are forced to survive in.”
Strong word of mouth helped The Call become one of the top-performing horror films of the season and the buzz is sure to continue when it releases this December. Special features on both formats include deleted scenes, as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette that takes audiences into the minds of cast and crew and venture deeper into their nightmarish world. Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) announces that The Call is coming to Blu-ray™ and DVD on December 15. Be sure to check it out and let us know what you think!
