Do you like scary movies?

NaturalBlog doesn't see a lot of movies, and the ones I do see I usually don't like (Walk the Line -- two thumbs down for a bad story arc). But one movie that I'm willing to recommend sight unseen is the upcoming remake of 1979's When a Stranger Calls.

If the remake is even one-tenth as frightening as the bone-chilling original, then it will be enough to keep you up nights for a week.

As proof I offer the creepy line an unknown caller repeats again and again to the movie's protagonist babysitter: "Have you checked the children?" Could anything be scarier? Only when the cops call to say "Get out of the house. The call is coming from inside the house."

Feb. 3 in theaters. See you there.
