Based on a novel by Ash Wolfe, Sony Entertainment’s The Calling is a chilling tale of gruesome murders and religious fanaticism. The all star cast is led by Susan Sarandon (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Thelma & Louise) who plays Hazel MiCallef, a Detective Inspector of a small town in Canada.
Leading a quiet life that is peppered with painkillers and alcohol, Hazel becomes concerned for a neighbour when she can’t get a hold of her on the phone, so decides to stop by and check that everything is okay. It quickly becomes apparent that all is not well when Hazel finds her friend viciously murdered.
Along with fellow cop Gil Bellows (Shawshank Redemption, Ascension) and the new transfer from Toronto played by Topher Grace (Spider Man 3), the three set out to uncover who is behind this terrible murder that has rocked the small town, a town that has not ha a murder for four years.
Their task leads them to uncover that this is not an isolated event and similar murders have been committed across the country. A rather unsettling discovery in their findings leads Hazel to meet with a local priest played by Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games) who suggests that there is a link to an ancient religious ritual, sets the trio on the tail of a crazy madman that believes he serves a higher power.
