Plot Summary

Detective Inspector Hazel Micallef (Susan Sarandon) is used to leading a quiet life in a small town, with her mother (Ellen Burstyn), her painkillers, and an occasional drink. But when she stops on a routine call to check on a neighbor, she stumbles across a gruesome murder that shatters her peaceful existence. With the help of Detective Ray Greene (Gil Bellows) and a new transfer cop (Topher Grace), she unearths a series of killings across the country with similar, grisly crime scenes. When a local priest (Donald Sutherland) suggests there may be a link to an ancient ritual, Hazel finds herself on the trail of a religious serial killer following a deadly, higher calling. Based on the novel by Inger Ash Wolfe, it’s a dark, twisted journey to the shadowy landscape between faith and fear.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: "The Calling" aims to unsettle, but when a movie primarily leaves you wanting to learn more about the jurisdictional conflicts of Canadian law, it can't properly be called a thriller. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Aug 28, 2014

Fresh: There's one scene in this serial-killer drama that may haunt you, especially if you have a thing about corpses' mouths (shiver). – Melissa Maerz, Entertainment Weekly, Aug 28, 2014

Fresh: Stone ... creates a taut, enveloping atmosphere as the mystery's grim puzzle pieces unfold. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Aug 28, 2014

Rotten: [Comes] across as the sort of standard police procedural that might serve as the pilot for a television series. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Aug 26, 2014
