Reviews [click links to read more]:

“It has a lot of moving parts but handles them beautifully and the project gives the feeling that those involved knew what they were doing. It’s complex but thought out back-and-forth but beautifully tied together. The music, the imagery, the emotion, it just all feels right. I can see myself checking this film out again now that I know how it all ends up.” The Horror Show

“It was effective in having an ever-present tinge of sadness, but some key plot points felt underdeveloped. Director and writer Joseph Anderson (who also has a memorable side part as a Reverend) creates a film that is mainly low on excitement, but which manages to tell a story that falls on the mature side without ever becoming boring. A good film that is only denied greatness by a few issues.” The Rotting Zombie

” …Grave Caller is quite a fascinating puzzle, one that has the two temporal levels of the film intertwined in a morbid way. And the film is also cleverly built up in a way that it doesn’t give away too much too soon but is full of surprises that get more macabre the longer the film goes, up to the very eerie ending. And an atmosphere-heavy directorial effort really sees to it that the creepiness never lets up.” Search My Trash
