When A Stranger Calls (1979)


The last film and it’s become a favorite of mine. When A Stranger Calls from 1979. Directed by Fred Walton, the film stars Carol Kane as teenage Jill Johnson who is babysitting a wealthy couple’s children. She’s keeps getting phone calls from a stranger asking, “Have you checked the children?”.

Those first 20 minutes of this film is the most scary. It’s quite a good film, but if you have baby sit…you may just want to quit!

“Have you checked the children?”

The film is based on the story of the classic urban legend, ‘The babysitter and the man upstairs’.

Very creepy scene isn’t it? I hope you enjoyed these selections of these favorite films of mine. I also hope you guys enjoyed the spooky month or season. Be safe, healthy, and blessed.
