The Call

Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, Leah Templeton is killed on Feb 26. Then the newspaper obituary that Jordan had hanging on her locker door says that Leah's service was to be held at 11am on Feb 27. That is not enough time to prepare the body and get her ready for her funeral by 11am the next morning, especially since it's a murder under investigation.

Other mistake: When Casey is in the car boot on the phone to Jordan, Jordan is asking her to describe what she sees in the boot of the car. Casey is naming the items she sees, paint cans, shovel etc. Jordan asks her to pour the paint out of the boot through the tail light hole. Jordan puts out a call to look out for a car with "WHITE paint pouring out the back," but Casey didn't tell her the colour of the paint.

Factual error: The substance he haves her inhale to perform his surgical scalping should be nitrous oxide (laughing gas) not "nitric oxide" which is a substance in our bodies that stimulates vaso-dilation.


Jordan Turner: Wave it, wave it, wave it.

Casey Welson: Mom. Mom, you were always the perfect mother. You gave me everything that I ever wanted. And I love you. I love you so much. And I'm really sorry. Please don't ever forget me.

Officer Paul Phillips: Double check, quadruple check, triple check. He does not get through this point, all right?

More quotes from The Call


Question: Berry's phone didn't have a signal in the hideout hole. Can't you call 911 even if your phone doesn't have a signal?

Chosen answer: Not if you have absolutely no signal, no, you can't. Mobile phone companies generally have an agreement that any network will carry an emergency call, even if it's not the network that that phone belongs to, so if you were out of range of your own network, another could carry your call, but if you're in a situation where none of the networks can reach you, by definition no calls of any kind can be made.

Question: What happened to the man's sister and why was there blood on the sister's bed?

Answer: His sister died of Leukemia. The blood is probably from one or more of his victims.
