“Answer the Call for an Eerie Throwback to '80s Horror,” Says Killer Horror Critic

THE CALL RELEASES ON BLU-RAY™ & DVD DECEMBER 15

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 1, 2020-- Four Friends. One Phone Call. 60 Seconds. Stay Alive. After its successful nationwide theatrical run plus chart-topping premium VOD release, Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) announces that THE CALL is coming to Blu-ray™ & DVD December 15. Set in the fall of 1987, a group of small-town friends must survive the night in the home of a sinister couple after a tragic accident occurs. Needing only to make a single phone call, the request seems horribly ordinary until they realize that this call could change their life…or end it.

Led by horror icons Lin Shaye (Insidious franchise, Ouija) and Tobin Bell (Saw, Jigsaw), THE CALL has been a hit with both audiences and critics alike with The Digital Journal saying, “Tobin Bell is a revelation” and “Lin Shaye is irresistible.” Strong word of mouth helped THE CALL become one of the top performing horror films of the season and the buzz is sure to continue when it releases this December on Blu-ray™ and DVD. Special features on both formats include deleted scenes, as well as a behind-the-scenes featurette that takes audiences into the minds of cast and crew and venture deeper into their nightmarish world.

Shaye is best known for her role of Elise Rainier from the worldwide box office hit franchise INSIDIOUS. She’s also starred in a variety of horror films including THE GRUDGE, OUIJA, THE FINAL WISH and Showtime’s PENNY DREADFUL: CITY OF ANGELS. Bell is best known for his role in the SAW franchise playing the terrifying role of John “Jigsaw” Kramer in all 8 movies.

“Pairing Tobin and Lin, or Saw’s Jigsaw and Insidious’ Elise Rainier as they’re known to horror fans around the world, brings so much terror to the screen,” said Emmy® Nominated Director Timothy Woodward Jr. “Their chemistry is undeniable, and the power of their scenes splinters off, creating this dark, macabre world these characters are forced to survive in.”

Directed by Woodward Jr, THE CALL was written by Patrick Stibbs and produced by Final Destination creator Jeffrey Reddick, Stibbs, Zebulun Huling, Gina Rugolo and Randy J. Goodwin. Executive Producers include Nicolas Chartier, Jonathan Deckter, Matthew Helderman, Joe Listhaus, Drew Ryce, James Shavick, Kirk Shaw and Luke Taylor. Co Producers include James Cullen Bressack and Chaysen Beacham.
