Not bad but not as great as the critics say
Having read so many rave reviews and warnings of how scary it was, I set this DVD aside until a particularly stormy winter's night's viewing to get the full fun effect. Perhaps it was the effect of the build up from the reviews, but I actually was not scared at all whilst watching it. It seemed very well acted and filmed, but there didn't seem to be anything in it that I hadn't experienced elsewhere in other movies; in fact, in many ways it came across more as a homage to the genre rather than a new contender. There seemed to be not enough build up of tension for the adrenalin to kick in. Perhaps being kept in the dark about the perpetrator was intended to work, but it seemed lazy to me. At least with "Cujo" I had something tangible to fear. In "The Shining'" it was something about the house. Judging from the accolades this received from Australian reviewers of this Australian movie, maybe I am simply someone who doesn't appreciate the art of scariness. However, I know I am still scared by the original "When A Stranger Calls".
