When A Stranger Calls

Preview by Jack Foley

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.

With the pivotal line “Have you checked the children?” the seminal slasher, that sees a babysitter terrorised by a psychopathic killer, struck fear into the hearts of a generation of filmgoers. Now this terrifying movie, directed by Fred Walton (The Rosary Murders) and starring Carol Kane (The Princess Bride) and Charles Durning (Dog Day Afternoon), is set to arrive on Blu-ray alongside its rarely seen sequel When A Stranger Calls Back in HD on July 1, 2019.

The set features the film in a new scan and restoration, plus the film The Sitter, reversible sleeve with new artwork and original poster artwork and much more.

This hugely influential horror opens with the babysitter receiving the chilling phone call from a killer, which has often been copied, but rarely bettered and provided the inspiration for the first scene in Wes Craven’s hit Scream.

When A Stranger Calls sees an urban legend made flesh, as student babysitter Jill Johnson is looking after a family’s children when she receives the first in a series of mysterious and increasingly scary phone calls from a stranger.

Police trace the call and discover it’s coming from inside the house, sparking a desperate chase and a shocking and grisly discovery.

Seven years later, the brutal killer has escaped from psychiatric hospital and is once again targeting Johnson.

The cop who saved her first time around, now a private detective comes to her aid, but can they track the brutal killer before it’s too late?

Be sure to lock the doors, ignore the ringing phone and make sure the kids are alright, before watching When A Stranger Calls.
