Susan Sarandon in The Calling

EW's GRADE
B-

Details Limited Release: Aug 29, 2014; Rated: R; Length: 108 Minutes; Genre: Thriller; With: Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, Susan Sarandon and Donald Sutherland; Distributor: Vertical Entertainment

There's one scene in this serial-killer drama that may haunt you, especially if you have a thing about corpses' mouths (shiver). And yet, as two detectives (Susan Sarandon and Topher Grace) hunt down a homicidal cult leader, there's not much else to fear, beyond déjà vu. The Calling shares a little too much with atmospheric TV mysteries like The Killing and Broadchurch: the hard-living female detective, the cloudy weather, the small-town existentialism. Don't serial killers ever work in big cities anymore? (Also on iTunes and VOD) B-
