portrayal of how to treat the mentally ill

Movie kept me on the edge of my seat, but I'm disappointed in the ending. Main character was obviously mentally ill, and -- spoiler alert -- he is locked in an underground shelter to die a slow tortorous death. Yes, I understand this person had tortured and killed his victims, but would a person do this if they were mentally healthy? No. Is mental illness something someone chooses? No. It is a brain disorder. There are genetic components and usually something in their environment (like the death of sibling) that triggers it. If someone had a brain tumor that made them behave like this killer, we would not think it's OK to torture and kill him, but it's still considered acceptable and even desirable to do it to the mentally ill. I think future generations will be aghast when they look at movies like this for their treatment of people with brain disoders and how they manipulate audiences to want them tortured and killed.

This is the movie for you if you like to sit on the edge of your seat for 90 minutes. Very suspenseful, fast paced and good acting with a little twist in the end...

The Call

Don't waste your money! Run! away from this awful "thriller." The acting is poor, the plot line is stupid. Halle Berry should get 10 razzies for this one. It's a sad cross between Silence of the Lambs and Panic Room. It's unbelieveable. I can't believe 911 operators stand around observing one operator's trauma calls.The police send out darn near the entire force to catch the perp.This movie is AWFUL!! I give it two thumbs and eight fingers DOWN.

I was on the edge of my seat the whole time! Halle berry does a great job of keeping you interested along with the other main characters who seem to do an excellent job of convincing you. There's a lot if emotion from crazy to sad and you'll find yourself rooting for this poor little girl throughout the whole movie. The suspense pushes this past the rest of the pack! A-plus!
