1. All star cast
Rarely does a movie have an all-star cast from main actor to supporting actor as "The Call
". Although Park Shin Hye
is the main actress, the other female lead, Jun Jong Seo
and the magic mother played by actress Lee El
, are the two most impressive characters. With a performance that scared the audience with just one glance, Jun Jong Seo and Lee El took the spotlight along with other famous actors in "The Call". However, it is undeniable that Park Shin Hye has successfully completed her role.

2. The color of the film is beautiful and the sound is very attractive, but be careful because of the conclusion
The audience also had a headache at the timeline and the end of "The Call" after the turn-around after-credit twist. With the story divided into three separate parts by climactic episodes, the follow-up journey of "The Call" needs alert brains to deduce the final destination of the intricate events, all coming from The phone call helps change the fate between the two female leads Seo Yeon (Park Shin Hye) and Young Sook (Jun Jong Seo).
Besides, not watching "The Call" in theaters shared by many audiences is one of the most regretful things. Although the scene mostly takes place in a large villa in the countryside, the contrast between reality and the past, the supporting colors highlighting the character's emotions have brought exciting experiences to the audience who love of cinema. Director Lee Chung Hyun and the post-production team have successfully edited and utilized the scene noise and scare sound throughout 114 minutes to evoke the feeling of restlessness, fear in mind, regardless of the cinematography has not really been appreciated yet.
3. Not a horror but also a heartbreaking view
The first impression, "The Call" is no different than a horror film directed at the heresy. However, the movie easily struck fear in the audience's psychology from the single factors: helpless screams for help, the dim lights of the exorcism ceremony, the stairs leading down to the dark cellar and even the phone ringing. Combining more elements of resentment because of the unlucky fate of the heroine, "The Call" is a terrifying tragic banquet table that challenges viewers' endurance.
However, the acting of the female lead Jun Jong Seo is really the highlight of the fear without jump-scare, when the deadly gaze and savage laugh of her is also enough to make the audience frizzy. The violence factor is also one of the things that have been warned since the 16+ label, proving that "The Call" is not a mere entertainment project for moviegoers but has a heart weak. With alternating twists until the very last minute, "The Call" has succeeded in keeping the audience together, a photo looking directly at the camera of Jun Jong Seo can also scare you.
