When Michael Calls - 1972
Helen begins receiving phone calls from a troubled child who claims to be her nephew Michael. The problem is that Michael died fifteen years ago.
Phone calls from beyond the grave are bad enough, and these sound mighty eerie, if you are affected by sounds in horror films the way that I am. But what really has the potential to be chilling is the idea that, if it’s not a ghost calling, then someone has to be absolutely batshit crazy to perpetrate a hoax like this. Not only that, but they’ve managed to coerce a living child into making the phone calls.
Michael Douglas is here in an early role, and if you’re a fan of Falling Down then you know that he does disturbed characters very well.
When Michael Calls stars Ben Gazzara, Elizabeth Ashley, and Michael Douglas,
