Question: When I was in high school, my friends and I used to get together on Saturday nights and watch a scary movie called When a Stranger Calls Back. Someone recently told me it was actually a sequel to a movie called When a Stranger Calls. Is this true? If so, is it available to rent? ? Stefanie
Flickchick: Yes, it's true (kind of makes sense, doesn't it ? first When a Stranger Calls and then When a Stranger Calls Back?), and you should be able to find the original pretty easily: It's currently available to buy. Like the 1993 made-for-TV sequel, the 1979 fright flick also stars Carol Kane. But back then, she was the terrorized babysitter. While the movie drags in the middle, the first half-hour is scary as hell.
