Lin Shaye is a fixture in the horror industry.
From portraying Elise Rainier in the Insidious series to most recently in the horror series Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, she became a favorite in the horror world. Her horror resume extended to loads of films, including Dreamkatcher, Room for Rent, Abattoir, 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams, Snakes on a Plane and even with Helen Keller vs. Nightwolves to name a few.
Thus, for The Call, it was a no-brainer. Especially, when another horror film icon Tobin Bell of Saw franchise fame was attached to the project.
Here’s the official synopsis:
From the creator of Final Destination, Lin Shaye and Tobin Bell star in this terrifying tale of death from the fall of 1987. After a tragic accident, a group of small-town friends must survive the night in the home of a sinister couple. One by one, their worst nightmares quickly become reality as they enter the real of The Call. Four friends. One phone call. 60 Seconds. Stay Alive.
The other cast members also included Chester Rushing (Stranger Things), Erin Sanders (Zoey 101), Mike Manning (Cloud 9), and Sloane Morgan Siegel (Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street). Timothy Woodward Jr. (The Final Wish) directed the film from a script written by Patrick Stibbs.
