Director Scott McGinnis is now on my personal top ten list, and he entered it after I saw the very first scene of this movie. There was something about a camera angle and its focus that told me right away that this movie was going to be good.

Night Call reflects painstaking research and accuracy about facts. But thanks to the cuts executed randomly, the whole point is lost.

Murders - that's what this movie is about. And murder - that's what Kaavya did to this film by butchering the best scenes. And I'm not talking about porn, if that's what you are inferring. I'm talking about key scenes that could've explained the movie, shed some light on the whole mystique of it and given it a befitting ending.

Leslie Christian Chase is a builder who encounters problems while working on a project in Santa Del, Mexico. His workers become victims of human sacrifice performed by an ancient Indian tribe. To rid himself of this hassle, he gets all the Indians in the area shot. He's dared by one of the hunters to pull the trigger himself, which, like all stupid men, he does and invites the wrath of the tribe chieftain.

The natives also give him folklore that a man's spirit can enter another if he or she is in close proximity of the victim during the victim's death. Meanwhile, the chief comes seeking revenge and is killed by Senor Chase, but not before being bitten by him on his neck and having a scar left behind (and maybe gaining access to his mortal body...).

The scene then moves to six years later in Pennsylvania where Norrine is trying hard to find her boyfriend who was last seen at Leslie's Mansion. And the police are also investigating a series of murders where the tendons of the victim's legs are cut and the flesh is eaten leaving behind bite marks on the bones - human bite marks. And from here the theater starts biting into the movie and poor little yours truly loses track.

Anyway, Leslie is the killer and he's been doing it since he's under a curse (which? why? only the guy who cut the movie can explain). Norrine pieces it together (how? same as above). And he finally comes to Norrine and tells her that she's the only one who can free him from the curse and give him freedom (why her? what freedom?).

Finally she kills him, but he bites her too in the same spot, just like the chief did to him. Does she become the next whatever he became? Will she continue under a curse? Well, don't bother wondering because he'll never let you find out (I mean the projector operator).
