The movie lets you learn just enough about the victims to experience their fear and pain with maximum possible sympathy and intensity, and the sarcastic detective and other incidental characters get some hilarious lines.
If you accept the goal of the movie, which is, to horrify you the viewer by forcing you to feel intimate with this infantile, onanistic killer, I bet you will admit that this movie succeeds.
opinion,it is worth watching.the acting is surprisingly good for this
genre.the killer is pretty wacko.the 2 main cops are kind of humorous
at times.this movie did not feel like a horror movie to me.it wasn't
really graphic enough for that designation,in my opinion.but it was a
good suspense movie.it's a lot better than many movies of the genre and
certainly was well worth my time.it won't win any awards for
originality(even for being made in 1980)but what horror movie would?i
wouldn't call it a classic,though it may have that designation from
some critics and viewers.for me, "Don't Answer the Phone" is a 3.5/5
The "climax" is a bit disturbing, when the killer finally closes in on the therapist at her home, beats her, ties her to a chair, and screams at her. It all ends pretty abruptly, and I was glad, cuz I couldn't sit through this much more. I don't recommend this at all, not even for fans of horror films that show far more nudity than horror. It's sick, twisted, and amongst all that, mind-numbingly unentertaining, for many reasons. DO NOT GET THIS MOVIE! And if you do...well, knock yourself out.
Apparently, this new VHS and DVD version from Rhino edits out all the graphic sex and violence, which was the only reason to watch this trash in the first place. Why did Rhino think that this excrement was worth rereleasing in the first place, especially in a heavily edited version?
Too bad giving the film zero stars is not an option.
