“Wrong Number is a deeply moody study of anxiety and trepidation. There’s fabulous use of lighting and sound to really invoke dread. It benefits from a hugely relatable performance by Elle Woodruff Bryant. - ★★★★”
“The dread oozes through this entire film, with Teixeira even letting it hang uncomfortably through the credits.”
