Question: At the beginning, Jill tells the police that she believes the caller is watching her through the windows. Since he calls her, how is this possible since cell phones did not exist at the time this movie came out?

Answer: He could be watching her (potentially with binoculars or a telescope) from a different house or building that had a phone.
