Dial: Help ★★★

Don't hang up! This is one of the more tolerable silly Italian horror features from the commercialized late '80s. Flimsy connections, loose ends, startlingly sightless behavior, and a lame duck ending are over come by piecemeal set pieces, enjoyable absurdities, the lustrous appearance of actress Charlotte Lewis, and the usual style as substance of Italo Horror. I especially like the dynamic of rustic rooftops and old architecture with urban vogue. Logic may be on hold indefinitely, but that might add to the entertainment.

Include it in a conference call with other telephone terrors, like PARTY LINE and MURDER BY PHONE.
