More laughs and chills than SCREAM.” – Jeanne Wolf, Jeanne Wolf’s Hollywood
Jennifer Love Hewitt and Sarah Michelle Gellar star with Ryan Phillippe, Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Johnny Galecki in this terrifying tale of a body that just won't stay dead. After an accident on a winding road, four teens make the fatal mistake of dumping their victim's body into the sea. Exactly one year later, the dead man returns from his watery grave and he wants more than an apology.
When a Stranger Calls

'Have you checked the children?'
To Jill Johnson, it was the perfect babysitting job. The parents were away. The fridge was stocked. The children were tucked into bed. But then the phone rings and an ominous voice asks, "Have you checked the children?" Locked in with the lights out and the curtains drawn, a panicky Jill phones the police, who trace the calls - only to inform her they're coming from inside the house.
(2007) - Color 1 Hour 25 Minutes - R
Kate Beckinsale, Luke Wilson
Terrifying and Shocking!” – Shawn Edward, FOX-TV
When David and Amy Fox's car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, they are forced to spend the night at the only motel around, with only the TV to entertain them - until they discover that the low-budget slasher videos they find in their room were all filmed in the very room in which they're sitting. With hidden cameras now aimed at them, David and Amy must struggle to get out alive before they end up the next victims on tape.

My Thoughts: 

I like to watch scary movies around Halloween time so the 3 Triple Feature: I Know What You Did Last Summer, When A Stranger Calls, and Vacancy was right up my alley. 
I Know What You Did Last Summer: This film from 1997 starts out with fireworks, a 4th of July beauty pageant, the beach and four teens (2 boys and 2 girls) as they celebrate their last summer before college and careers. After accidentally hitting a guy on the road they decide to dispose of the (assumed dead) body in the ocean. A year later the teens get together again and bad things start happening to them. There's the guy in a fisherman's raincoat with the ice hook who goes after them. A couple scenes I liked was when Julie finds a body with crabs crawling around in her car trunk and Helen gets her hair chopped off in bed.  I enjoyed this thriller quite a lot. It was suspenseful and wanted me to keep watching to the end.

When a Stranger Calls: This film from 2006 is about a high school age babysitter named Jill, whose parents make her get a babysitting job to make some extra money for going over her minutes on her mobile phone. The kids are already asleep when she gets to the house, which is a high-tech mansion located on an isolated road by a lake. She's all set to enjoy the evening, when she starts getting creepy phone calls. When she calls the police they tell her the calls are coming from inside of the same house. Overall, I like that this film is not gory but very suspenseful scary. I thought Camilla Belle, who portrays the babysitter, does a fine job in it.

Vacancy: This film from 2007 had my attention right away with the couple whose car breaks down in an eery deserted area. They walk to a dingy looking motel where things start happening - people knocking on doors and the phone ringing with nobody there. When David starts watching a terrifying video he sees in their room he realizes it was made in the same room they are in. They find out they are being video-taped themselves and decide to get out of there. When they do, the couple are fighting for their lives. This is a great suspenseful film which I enjoyed. It kept my attention to the end.
