Director Brad Anderson knows how to create an intense atmosphere. He may not be a household name and his films may not really get any box office results, but with movies like Session 9, The Machinist, and Transsiberian on his resume he has proven himself as one of the better horror directors working today (even Vanishing on 7th Street, which had a litany of problems, was still creepy and effective). He's spent the bulk of the last two years working on a number of television series, including Fringe, Boardwalk Empire, Person of Interest and The Killing, but this year he's making his way back to the big screen with The Call.

Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for the new thriller, which brings together stars Halle Berry, Abigail Breslin, Morris Chestnut, Michael Eklund and Michael Imperioli. Check it out below, but be warned: the end of the clip looks like it could contain a few shots from the movie's third act.



Based on a script by Richard D'Ovidio (Thir13en Ghosts, Exit Wounds), The Call begins when a 9-1-1 emergency operator (Berry) accidentaly gets a young woman killed by a serial killer. While struck with grief over the situation, she sees her chance for retribution when she discovers that the same criminal (Eklund) has kidnapped a young woman (Breslin) and put her in his trunk. From there the race begins as the operator works to find the victim before it's too late. Look for the film in theaters on March 15th and head over to our Blend Film Database
