Say the producers:

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 realm of THE CALL. Four Friends. One Phone Call. 60 Seconds. Stay Alive.

Sanders talked about making the film right at the start of the year and what a shock it is to have it coming out in quarantine, but that there are bright spots as well– the resurgence of drive-ins and the ability to find so many films on VOD.


The Call will have its home entertainment premiere on 10/30 and will be available on Premium VOD & Digital.
