30-Day Horror Movie Challenge: Day 23 – Made-For-TV Horror Film…

movie poster When a Stranger Calls Back 1993

Tagline: Guess Who’s Back? The Nightmare Continues…

Synopsis: “A young babysitter, all alone in the house with two children asleep above, is bothered by a stranger. Unfortunately, the phone’s dead…” source

Since I first read The Babysitter by R.L. Stine in my tweens, home invasion whilst alone, or whilst babysitting, has always scared the bejesus outta me. When I started watching movies with similar plots, I learned, yep, every bit as scary as reading it. Calling 911 for help then hearing those dreaded words, “He’s inside the house!” Ahhhhh!

Add to my above pre-existing fear the crafty modus operandi of the killer in WHEN A STRANGER CALLS BACK and nightmares were pretty much guaranteed. I would literally run my hand along walls and doors and windows before going to bed. Yeah, good times.
