Veteran actor and horror icon Tobin Bell chatted with Digital Journal's Markos Papadatos about his new horror movie "The Call."
The Call was written by Patrick Stibbs, and it was directed by Emmy nominee Timothy Woodward Jr. "It was great. We worked in a fabulous house, which is reflected in the film with the wonderful lighting. I think the house looks great," he said.
"Director Timothy Woodward Jr. did a great job. I was impressed with his direction. He loves horror movies, and has a really good feel for it," he said. "I liked working with Lin Shaye a lot. Even when she is playing a very scary character, she invariably brings a sense of heart to any character she plays, which I very much appreciate. As an actor, I was able to connect with Lin and that is displayed in the film."
"It was great to work with Lin Shaye, she has had a great career, especially in this genre. She is a great actress and she layers what she does with a multiplicity of feelings. That was a great treat," he said.

"I really liked working on The Call, and I enjoyed working with the younger actors," he said. "Chester, Erin, Mike and Sloane. Mike Manning played Zack, who was the tough guy, and what I liked about all four of these kids is that they were so different from each other with different textures. They all had different attitudes."
Earlier this year, Bell was in the horror film Gates of Darkness. "Coming from a Catholic background and being an altar boy, I could relate to this film," he said. "It was good working with Brandon Beemer. We worked on some amazing locations. Every film that you do has its unique challenges."

"After Gates of Darkness, Brandon Beemer and I crossed paths again in Days of Our Lives. I worked there for one day, and they broke the scenes up, and I ended up in five episodes. I got nominated for an Emmy Award for that role. I played a Chinese revolutionary, Yo Ling," he said.
