WHEN A STRANGER CALLS

A remake of something that was already a remake of a short film 26 years ago, this one  has a killer repeatedly calling  to threaten a babysitter alone in a dark house. The catch: In the updated version, the killer keeps calling on a cell phone. What, the babysitter never heard of Caller ID, Call Blocking or any of those other features designed to stop spam calls?  If she's THAT dumb, we say she deserves to die!

Along with everyone even remotely responsible for remaking this movie!

Is it too much to ask a single motion picture executive to get off the e-
meter and come up with an original idea?

“Grandma’s Boy.” “Bloodrayne” “Aeon Flux.” “The Fog.” “Big Momma’s House 2.” “When a Stranger Calls.”

What do all of these movies have in common (besides being crappy)?

No advance screenings!

Why didn't you nominate Brangelina as most tired tabloid people?

i think this one should be a huge Razzie contender, I think it looks really dumb.
The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

You made important points, HeadRAZZ. This movie loses all of it´s core with all the features you mentioned. Someone harrassing you on the phone? check his/her number on the caller ID and don´t answer his/her calls anymore!!!!

Another pointless, useless remake

A remake of a remake that can be mistaken for a ripoff of a bad movie?

Must. Razzie. This. Piece. Of. sh*t.

Dude, the movie might not have been an original idea, but they still made a hell of a lot of money off the movie. They knew that teens would go see the movie and so even though it may not have been that good, it was scary and people want to go see scary movies.

She was NOT dumb in this film. In fact, she was one of the most smartest heroines in a horror/thriller film. Just see the film and look at the last 20 minutes and you would know why.

This is BADDDD...really bad

I don´t understand why Hollywood is making all this stupid remakes...Now comes WHEN A STRANGER CALLS; a frightless, dumb and cheesy "horror movie" where you can find the most numbers of movie cliches ever made...

 

The film is a complete dull from the beginning and the plot doesn´t go anywhere...What was 12 minutes in SCREAM...now becomes an hour and some more of complete bore from top to bottom

This should be nominated as worst remake and worst actress (Camila Belle...or whatever)

but this wasn't a horror film. It was a suspense thriller which people confuse by horror.
