Review The Calling :
Low-Key and Sombre Serial Killer Story with Religious Rituals
Slightly Different and Mildly Engaging, this Serial Killer Story has a Backdrop of Oral Religious Ritual and the Raising of the Dead as its Plot. Susan Sarandon Once Again Shows Why She is a Respected Thespian as She Dominates the Picture.
Also Along for this Slowly Paced Thriller are Donald Sutherland and a Chilling Performance from Christopher Heyerdahl as a Killer Priest that is Delusional as Well as a Healer.
The Film is Lacking Any Visual Flair and the Dialog is Mostly Mundane but the Story Itself is Interesting Enough and the Movie as a Whole is Worth a Watch. Just Don't Expect a Plethora of Gore or a Vibrant, Pulsating Pace. It's a Slightly Above Average Entry in the Genre Helped Along Immensely by Sarandon's Take on an Aging, Physically Suffering, Small Town Cop.
The Usual Bent on This Type of Horror is to Over Emphasise the Killings and Ramp Up the Police Procedure to a Place Beyond Reality. This has a More Realistic, but Sombre Tone.
