Really good movie sometimes predictable but most movies are.Idea not that original but it keeps you to the screen.I would say watch the movie there are definitely better movies but this is a good movie to watch if you have extra time.Also idk why are people hating on it so much.

I really enjoyed 'Don't Hang Up'. It's a bit of a cross between 'Scream' and 'Phone Booth' - both films that I love. It's a return to the days of smart thrillers, where not everything is as it seems and you have to keep thinking right up until the dying moments. In fact that's the thing I liked most about it, is that it treats the viewer with respect. Too many films today insult the audience with bland and uncreative scripts that they think they can cover up with special effects and a great number of jump scares. Not 'Don't Hang Up' though. It has both a wonderful script to work with and is wonderfully shot.
I'd call this more of a thriller than a horror, but there are certainly elements to it that would have to classified as horror. There are minimal (if any at all?) jump scares. Instead, they take the high road and simply do a tremendous job of creating tension in every scene. The acting from a young cast is also superb, and the voice work of Philip Desmeules is nothing short of brilliant. I can honestly say I wasn't far off giving this one a '10'. It's a brilliant film that needs to be seen.

Just got done watching it. Really liked it, nothing new but well doneon old ideas. Kind of a cross between "I know what you did last summer"and "saw" with maybe a little "are you in the house alone" mixed in.High tension throughout, kept me interested and played out well. Lotsof horror tropes that we all know and love (well some of us anyway)Looking at IMDb reviews and a lot of people didn't like it. But they'rethe same people who only like the artsier horror like Babadook or TheWitch. Both good movies but sometimes you just want a good oldfashioned slasher, something that doesn't make you think or try andfigure it out. This is that movie.
Good production value, good use of lighting, sound etc. Acting wasdecent and even though the ideas were old I thought the way they werebrought about was good. I give it an 8 of 10, good use of an hour and ahalf on a boring night.
