Columbia picks up When a Stranger Calls

If horror films have taught us one thing it’s this: “Never pick up the phone.” Unfortunately, that message never got to the stars of the 1979 classic horror film When a Stranger Calls. Coming this October from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment, “When a Stranger Calls” will no doubt thrill audiences once again.

Carol Kane stars as the babysitter who is tormented by a series of ominous phone calls until a compulsive cop (Charles Durning) is brought on the scene to apprehend the psychotic killer. Seven years later, however, the nightmare begins again when the madman returns to mercilessly haunt Kane, now a wife and mother. No longer a naive girl – though still terrified, she’s prepared – she moves boldly to thwart the maniac’s attack in scenes that culminate in a nerve-shattering conclusion.

“When a Stranger Calls” will be available for viewing in both widescreen and fullscreen transfers in its original Mono sound. The disc will contain it’s original theatrical trailer.

Coming on October 9th, “When a Stranger Calls” will come from Columbia for $19.95.
