      B P ‘First Time Caller' is tense, smart, and shocking. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/24 Full Review Chloe B A slow burn evaluation of masculine grandstanding until it isn't, First Time Caller is smart, tight, and stylish. The pacing takes a sudden turn at the same time as the narrative. Watching this at home alone will make you feel grateful to be spared from the company of this kind of asshole, then make you send a series of "you up?"/"you ok?"/"you know I love you, right?" texts with acute awareness of your isolation. Bitingly funny but unrelentingly chilling, Goldfarb and the team behind First Time Caller present an extremely fun and absurdly clever hour and 15. Must-see indie horror that does a great job of keeping you hooked despite the fact that we hang out with one guy having a very bad day in his basement the whole time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Sonny Bunch The Bulwark Definitely “talky”—virtually every moment involves Ziff and Shorty’s banter; please don’t complain to me if you watch and get annoyed by movies where people talk a lot—but at a brisk 75 minutes, the duo does not outstay their welcome. Rated: 3/4 Jan 19, 2024 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Deathly dull Rated: 1/4 Jan 14, 2024 Full Review Olga Artemyeva ScreenAnarchy Manages to pack a lot in 75 minutes. It starts with the commentary on the Internet culture and then unfolds as an actual apocalypse movie – even though it happens off screen, that doesn’t make its horror any less tangible. Jan 10, 2024 Full Review Josh Bell Crooked Marquee A podcast can convey the scope of a global catastrophe with just audio, but as a movie, First Time Caller mainly showcases its limitations. Rated: C+ Jan 10, 2024 Full Review Alan Ng Film Threat There is not a lot of glitz and glamour in First Time Caller. But its hard-edge conversation and broader questions about this very divided world are worth giving a chance. Rated: 8/10 Dec 14, 2023 Full Review Lorry Kikta Film Threat If you’re a fan of shock jocks and the fictional end of the world, First Time Caller is definitely for you. Rated: 6/10 Dec 14, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
