The Calling

While summer 2014 has been typically top heavy with tentpoles, the pickings have been a little more slim for filmgoers in the market for grittier fare. However, if you've been looking for a serial killer potboiler, "The Calling" is right up your street.

Starring Susan Sarandon, Topher Grace, Donald Sutherland and Ellen Burstyn, the Jason Stone ("Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse") directed movie follows a smalltown detective whose investigation of a string of murders suggest a killer answering to a higher power. In this exclusive clip, you'll see the film's police putting a series of highly unappealing pieces together.

Currently available on VOD, you can catch "The Calling" on the big screen in limited release starting on August 29th. Check out the clip below, as well as the full trailer for the film.
