Deny, Deny, Deny

Sam (Gregg Sulkin) and Brady (Garrett Clayton) are close friends, "Brothers for Life". They operate a web site called "Prank Monkey 69" where they make serious prank phone calls. One night while home alone, they make their prank calls, but then one of the people they call knows them and things get serious as this turns into a semi-home invasion type of film with a stranger calling the shots...or else.

The serious prank phone calls famously died down in 2012 when an individual took their own life over one. If you watch these types of films you have a pretty good idea of the "why" behind it. After all there can only be one reason Scooby-Doo. The film had some decent scenes, but was over-all uneven. This is certainly not the worst in the genre, at least they didn't use a voice distorter. Considering the many bad horror films that have come out lately, you could do worse.

Guide: F-word. Brief sex. No nudity

Unknown caller

Prank calls - not a fan. And I'm not just talking about being the passive part of it (the "victim"), but also doing it myself to others. Or generally understanding why one would think this would be funny. It's actually pretty mean. Now does that warrant retaliation? Does that warrant what happens and might possibly happen to the ones involved here? Even if you'd agree to a certain degree to that notion, you wouldn't like the overall scale/scope this extends to.

Having said all that, the thriller aspect of it works quite decent and there is enough tension to keep you on the edge of your seat from a certain point forward. I got no love lost for the main characters, which undermines a bit of their struggle or my caring for it. I do care for other people involved that had nothing to do with it ... And then there is the twist ... the reasoning. I would say it works, but you also have to suspend your disbelief when it comes to a certain "stabbing" incident ... but that's me. Sometimes in the heat of the fight ... well things don't go the way you'd expect ... or maybe they do just that

Witless

DON'T HANG UP is a pretty awful slice of low budget horror with perhaps the two most awful and dislikeable protagonists I've seen in any movie. It's a tired old riff on the old WHEN A STRANGER CALLS type plotline, with prank calls spelling disaster for a couple of lads when they try to prank the wrong person. Mind games are interesting at first, but then this descends into typical slasher fare and becomes a witness exercise in attempted scares. They don't work.
