Fred Walton’s brilliant When a Stranger Calls was an expansion of his short The Sitter, based on the urban legend of ‘the babysitter and the man upstairs’. It utilises Carol Kane and Charles Durning in top class performances (Walton’s sequel When a Stranger Calls Back (1993) amplifies these characters in a brilliant and unique way) and Brit Tony Beckley as the deranged killer, who died just six months after the film’s release.

Kevin Williamson scripted his opening scene to Scream (1996) as a homage to both this and in particular the opening to When a Stranger Calls Back, wheren in turn, Walton's film was inspired by a similar sequence in Bob Clark's Black Christmas (1974).
