No Caller ID
Movie Review by Siobahn Harris
I found No Caller ID on YouTube late one night. I’m always a little concerned when watching a short because so much could go wrong in a short amount of time. Thankfully, this one was posted by Screamfest and I always seem to like their shorts!
It’s pretty simple people, don’t answer the phone if you don’t know who is calling, especially at 2am! Heather (played by Jocelyn Christian) gets a late night call and decided that it should be fine to answer. Unfortunately for her, it was probably the stupidest decision she could’ve made.
This was such a fun short to watch! At less than nine minutes, they had me trying to quiet Heather down by covering my own mouth! No Caller ID was incredibly creepy and actually reminded me of the movie Hush, which is one of my favorites. After watching this, you’ll probably check and double check the locks on your doors.
In only nine minutes? Believe it or not, yes! Like I said before, it didn’t take much for me to react to No Caller ID. It was creepy and the intruder aspect of it makes me think of every true crime show I’ve ever watched. This was great because while other films will leave you afraid of an impossible situation, this makes you fear reality. They killed it.
