Netflix has dropped a chilling special trailer for the upcoming thriller film The Call ahead of its release on the streaming platform.
Starring Park Shin-hye (#Alive) and Jeon Jong-seo (Burning) in lead roles, The Call tells the story of two women living in different time periods. One lives in the present, while one lives 20 years in the past, and they begin communicating through mysterious phone calls. What starts off as an innocuous friendship, sharing details about their everyday lives, soon turns darker as the two women realize that their fates are interconnected.
The film was originally supposed to get a domestic theatrical release but was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now scheduled to get released on November 27 on Netflix.
In the trailer released on November 16, Young-sook (Jeon Jong-seo) in the year 1999 gets a phone call from Seo-yeon (Park Shin-hye) from the year 2019. Seo-yeon tells Young-sook about finding her photograph dated November 26th, 1999, but Yong-sook is baffled because it’s November 18th in her timeline. When Seo-yeon tells Young-sook that she is about to die, Young-sook unveils the madness within her.
Jeon Jong-seo is seen laughing eerily as Park Shin-hye threatens to kill her. At one point, Park is seen screaming as her car turns over in an accident, broken glass flying around her. This is followed by a shot of her being chased by a mysterious figure. The trailer ends with Jeon sitting alone in a room, looking unhinged, with the phone clutched to her ear, as her voice narrates, “I feel like I’ve been reborn.”
The Call is directed by Lee Chung-hyun. It also stars Kim Sung-ryung (Believer), Lee El (Scent of Ghost), Oh Jung-se (Extreme Job), and Lee Dong-hwi (Exit). It is set for release worldwide on November 27. You can watch the main trailer for the film below.
