That master juggler of the high concept and the low budget Larry Cohen has had a bit of a late surge of telecommunications-themed thrillers. The latest example is Messages Deleted, and you can check out the trailer here.

Cohen of course, is the director of It's Alive, Return to Salem's Lot and Q The Winged Serpent, but he's as well known for his screenplays as his talent behind a camera. Phone Booth was directed by Batman villain Joel Schumacher, and **Cellular **by former stuntman David R Ellis, who went on to Snakes on a Plane and The Final Destination. Time will tell if such dizzy heights await Rob Cowan; lately a producer by trade, although he's credited as First AD on Stakeout and Cocktail.

Messages Deleted stars Deborah Unger, whose presence doesn't help this not feel a bit like The Game, and Matthew Lillard as the screenplay writer (and college lecturer, by the look of it) who gets set up playing the lead in a real-life serial-killer drama. "Every great thriller has a twist," we're told. We're not sure when we'll learn this one, as there's not yet a release date. But we'll keep you posted.
