It’s the latest film from indie auteur Chad Ferrin of THE DEEP ONES, EXORCISM AT 60,000 FEET and SOMEONE’S KNOCKING AT THE DOOR.
NIGHT CALLER, which we last reported on here, stars Susan Priver, Steve Railsback, Bai Ling, Lew Temple, Christine Nguyen and THE DEEP ONES’ Silvia Spross, Kelli Maroney and Robert Miano. Robert “Corpsy” Rhine, whose Girls and Corpses Films produced with Ferrin’s Crappy World Films, also has an onscreen role. The synopsis: “Telephone psychic Clementine Carter [Priver] is pulled into a complex web of mystery when she receives a call from a serial killer. Predicting his murders before he commits them puts her into a terrifying game of cat and mouse. Enlisting the aid of her invalid father and clairvoyant co-worker, they must use their unique abilities to stay one step ahead of a maniac whose unspeakable acts in the present are nothing compared to his past and future.”
“I am thrilled to announce the completion of NIGHT CALLER, a true labor of love that is sure to make an impact on even the most jaded viewer,” Ferrin tells RUE MORGUE. “It’s hitting the festival circuit this October, so keep your eyes peeled.” Adds Rhine, “The film harks back to such classics as THE EYES OF LAURA MARS, MANIAC and DRESSED TO KILL, with shades of PSYCHO I got a kick out of playing Detective Fuller, which is a complete turn from the rabbi I played in EXORCISM AT 60,000 FEET. My restored 1957 Ford LAPD police car also makes an appearance in NIGHT CALLER, and it was recently filmed for the Netflix limited series MONSTER: THE JEFFREY DAHMER STORY as well! We made this film during the height of the pandemic, but overcame the challenges via vaccinations and masks. It’s my fifth Girls and Corpses Film with Ferrin, and I look forward to collaborating with him more in the future.”
