A double helping of "clever" .. but massively short on Empathy

If you are a film student you know that the "reversal" usually comes in the final act, and there is a reason for that. By that point, the viewer is fully engaged, the endorphins are pumping, the action is flowing, and there is a need to take things up a notch.

What is happening here -- and let's give credit where credit is due -- is that the reversal takes place off the top, two pranksters get the tables turned, and it all happens in the first 10 minutes.

That is clever and it is a great start. But it creates problems. If you bring the reversal in too early, you run the risk of becoming dependent on it to drive the film, instead of relying on the basics. Such as dialog, characterizations, empathy, viewer connection.

Which is what happens here. After a great start there are major chunks that just lag, and the reason is that -- to be blunt -- by the halfway point, if you are a typical viewer, you don't really care if the 'slasher' gets the kids or the kids get the slasher. NO EMPATHY.

Many of the subsequent "slasher tropes" that close the third act are just that -- borrowed tricks from dozens of films you have already seen.

Overall the film is technically perfect and at some point in the not-too-distant future, those involved in it will look back at DON'T HANG UP as a great start for their Highlight Reel, but not entirely representative of their best work.

A very short review of "Don't Hang Up" (2017)

"Don't Hang Up" (2017) is an absolutely derivative horror movie that nevertheless manages to be halfway decent. I'd rate it a 7 out of 10.

We follow a handful of older teenage boys whose favorite avocation is perpetrating cruel prank phone calls and then posting them on the Internet. The horror genre's penchant for vengeance should make their comeuppance predictable. "Don't Hang Up" seems to borrow in equal (large) measure from the "Saw" and "Scream" film franchises, with touches of "Unfriended" (2014) and even "Silence of the Lambs" (1991).

Still, this was a halfway serviceable scary movie. There were nice moments of tension, and it held my interest.

This doesn't belong on anyone's must-see list, but it's a fun enough time-waster if you can't find a better movie.

almost the whole movie is predictable but still it works to make it watchable

Don't Hang Up, did remind me of some stuff seen in the early eighties. Could be a title of that era, but it isn't because it's all about the social media and what it could do. There are already a few flicks out about the social media about being unfriended and things go wrong, let this one be a revenge flick about doing pranks on social media and one of them gone wrong.

The way it was shot was really nice, doing effects like going through keyholes and windows with the camera so on that part it was okay. And the score did add towards the creepiness of this flick but of course it isn't all that good. It did remind me a lot of Saw somehow and it all predictable. You know towards the end who is going to kill who. In fact there are so many scene's that are predictable but still you want to see the ending. Even as you seen it in other home invasion flicks. Nothing is original but a big hurray to the director and writers. They did a good job because it didn't bothered me at all. Good entertainment and the red stuff is out there.

A nice flick to start off the Halloween night and it will do at many events.
