Synopsis

A suspense thriller set in the world of small town politics, “Dangerous Calling’ follows the story of Pastor Evans and his wife Nora as they assume leadership of First Baptist Willit Springs after the mysterious death of the previous paster.

Eager to get to know the new pastor, Miss Pat, the church’s controlling widow-woman, invites Evan and Nora to stay with her while she has the parsonage renovated. Left alone at Miss Pat’s beautiful home in the mountains of North Georgia, Nora begins to suspect that Miss Pat’s extremely sheltered adult son, Elijah, may have had something to do with the previous pastor’s death.

Dove Review

This movie makes its point by exaggeration. It focuses on church problems, such as people gossiping, being concerned they don’t lose their seat in the pew, criticism of the pastor, people singing who are not gifted in that area, etc. It actually has a woman in the story who kidnaps the pastor’s wife and attempts to kill her because God told her to! This part should be noted. However, although it is suspenseful, it also has obvious exaggerations in the film in order to make its points. If the points are well considered by the viewer, then this DVD has accomplished its task. The viewer who enjoys suspense and humor (such as a young girl telling the pastor his sermon was boring) will be entertained as well. We therefore award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this DVD for ages twelve plus, due to its mature themes.
