1979 Original WHEN A STRANGER CALLS To Receive UK Blu-Ray Release From Second Sight





“Have you checked the children?” This Halloween make sure you have, as the genre-defining When A Stranger Calls gets its first UK Blu-ray release on 17th December alongside sequel When A Stranger Calls Back.

The seminal slasher When A Stranger Calls, that sees a babysitter terrorised by a psychopathic killer, struck fear into the hearts of a generation of filmgoers. Now this terrifying movie, directed by Fred Walton (The Rosary Murders) and starring Carol Kane (The Princess Bride) and Charles Durning (Dog Day Afternoon), is set to get its first ever UK Blu-ray courtesy of Second Sight on 17th December 2018.

This hugely influential horror opens with the babysitter receiving the chilling phone call from a killer, which has often been copied, but rarely bettered and provided the inspiration for the first scene in Wes Craven’s hit Scream.

Now this genre-defining film gets the high def treatment as a two Blu-ray disc / one CD set in stunning collector’s packaging. When A Stranger Calls/ When A Stranger Calls Back: Limited Edition features a brand-new scan and restoration of the original film; the sequel When a Stranger Calls Back in HD; the original, rarely seen, short film The Sitter newly restored; brand new interviews; a 40-page perfect bound booklet; Original Soundtrack CD; reversible poster featuring new and original artwork; reversible sleeve featuring new and original artwork.

I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Kingdom Come: Deliverance
