When a Stranger Calls ★ 2006 (PG-13)

The call is still coming from (gasp!) inside the house in this remake of the 1979 nail-biter, except the house is now a modern high-tech glass palace (strangely without caller ID though)—in the middle of nowhere, of course (because that's where most palaces are). The violence that marked the original is toned down to make it more teen-friendly. Unfortunately, so is the suspense. 100m/C DVD, UMD .
