Apple TV+ recently released their new genre-bending thriller “Calls”, directed by Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe‘s Fede Álvarez.
Based on the buzzy CANAL+ French series of the same name created by Timothée Hochet, “Calls” is said to be “a groundbreaking, immersive television experience that masterfully uses audio and minimal abstract visuals to tell nine bone-chilling, short-form stories.”
Each episode follows a darkly dramatic mystery that unfolds through a series of seemingly average, unconnected phone calls that quickly become surreal as the characters face growingly unsettling experiences.
There’s a stellar cast, with one of the horror highlights being none other than Jennifer Tilly, star of the later Child’s Play films, Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky, and Cult of Chucky.
Other talents who appear in the nine episodes: Nicholas Braun (“Succession”), Clancy Brown (Hellbenders), Lily Collins (Priest), Rosario Dawson (Sin City), Mark Duplass (Creep), Karen Gillan (Avengers: Endgame), Judy Greer (Halloween), Paul Walter Hauser (“Cobra Kai”), Danny Huston (30 Days of Night), Nick Jonas (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Riley Keough (The Lodge), Joey King (The Conjuring Wish Upon), Stephen Lang (Don’t Breathe, VFW), Jaeden Martell (“Defending Jacob”), Paola Nuñez (“Bad Boys for Life”), Pedro Pascal (“The Mandalorian”), Edi Patterson (“The Righteous Gemstones”), Aubrey Plaza (“Parks and Recreation”), Danny Pudi (“Mythic Quest”), Ben Schwartz (“House of Lies”), and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Tenet).
