Kit Austin: But at least I can come for dinner. He'll drive me over. How do we get there? You live out in the wilderness.
Libby: It's not that bad. It's easy really. You go about 15 miles past the gas station on Elm. Then you turn right on Tomkins Street. You keep going right until you pass the railroad tracks. Then you turn left and go for about 6 miles. You come to a red barn, you pass that...

Very suspenseful
11 May 2004 | by (Wilkesboro, NC) – See all my reviews

Here's the plot: A teenage girl with her friend and younger sister(Andi Garett, Sara Lane, and Sharyl Locke) are left home alone one night by their parents, after the babysitter cancels. To amuse themselves, the decide to make prank phone calls(this was in 1965, long before caller ID or tracing existed) one phrase they use quite often to the people they call is "I saw what you did...and I know who you are." What they don't know is that one of the people they call, Steve Marek (John Ireland) takes them seriously, having just stabbed his wife to death!

This film was really scary or at least very suspenseful, considering the time period. I was pretty much on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen next. There are a few things that bring this film down, chief among them most inappropriate score I think I've ever heard. It was just corny. The acting in the initial scene between the two teen girls is bad, but gets better. This film comes highly recommended. 7/10
