Halloween Disc-A-Day 2017: Day 12 - A Dead Calling

Continuing from last year, this project is an attempt to help me get dvds that for one reason or another I’ve never seen off of my shelf and give them a watch.  I just watched A Dead Calling.

IMDb: A Dead Calling (Video 12 December 2006)
In New York, the journalist Rachel Beckwith is attacked by a burglar and her fiancé Brian is murdered trying to defend her. Rachel returns to her hometown Fillmore to recover in the house of her parents. Six months later, she his hired by Stephen Javitz to work in the local television and her first assignment is to cover the architecture of the mansions in Fillmore. Rachel is attracted to the abandoned house of Dr. Frank Sullivan and when she breaks in the house, she sees the murder of Mrs. Sullivan by Dr. Frank, She returns to the house and also sees the murder of the journalism of the Fillmore Union Tribune Arnold "Arnie" Howard. When she calls the police, she learns that Arnie died many years ago. Soon Rachel is contacted by the ghost of Mrs. Sullivan that asks her to help her family and her to find peace. Rachel decides to investigate her connection with the Sullivan's family and their house.

For a movie with two Murkens, this is pretty by the book.  Seriously why on earth would you give two cops the last name Murken in a non-comedy setting?  It's a bizarre choice when everything else, including how those character behave, is so straight-faced.  The casting that's done for the sake of a recognizable name is directly Rob Zombie inspired.  Sid Haig, Bill Mosely, and Leslie Easterbrook are all in House of a 1000 Corpses and Devil's Rejects.  There's no real reason for it.  They couldn't have been looking for those types of performances because act like actual people in this movie.  Story and look of the film are both very middle-of-the-road, but if the movie had some bigger names in the lead roles, this could have been in theaters.  It wouldn't have been any better, but people would have seen it.

What will tomorrow bring?  I only know that I used up my best picks last year, so it's anybody's guess.  In the meantime, listen to Motion Picture Meltdown as the discuss more ghostly goings-ons with the Insidious movies.
