* MoodLighting: The whole film has a very obvious blue sheen to it. This was probably meant in part to hide the aforementioned CaliforniaDoubling (see above).

* CaliforniaDoubling: Shot on the only street in Los Angeles which could pass for Manhattan. Though the effect is blown in long shots, when you can see the skyscrapers ending after a few blocks. Also, given the address where the phone booth supposedly is, he should be basically across the street from Studio 54.

''Phone Booth'' is a 2002 suspense film directed by Creator/JoelSchumacher about a publicist, Stu Shepard (Colin Farrell), who finds himself held hostage in a phone booth in full view of the New York City public by a sniper (voiced by Creator/KieferSutherland) who has uncovered him plotting an affair with Pamela [=McFadden=] (Katie Holmes), and wants him to change his ways. To prove his seriousness, the voice on the other end snipes a bystander who's hassling Stu to get out of the booth.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: They went out of their way NOT to acknowledge that Kiefer Sutherland is the Caller, but when the movie came out to video and DVD, they slapped the actor's face and name on the cover front and center. This was probably due to his role on ''Series/TwentyFour'' both times.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Averted. They went out of their way NOT to acknowledge that Kiefer Sutherland is the Caller, but when the movie came out to video and DVD, they slapped the actor's face and name on the cover front and center. This was probably due to his role on ''Series/TwentyFour'' both times.
** At the same time, it was pretty hard to hide who was playing the Caller in any case, as Kiefer Sutherland has a very distinctive voice.
** Still, having the obvious villain's face on the cover in a film where the major fake-out is that the killer is staged is kind of a giveaway.

-->'''The Sniper:''' You know like in the movies just as the good guy is about to kill the bad guy, he cocks his gun. Now why didn't he have it cocked? [[RuleOfScary Because that sound is scary.]]
