Product Description

One Missed Call is a remake of a classic Japanese horror Chakushin Ari. It happens to one. Then another. And another. College students discover eerie voicemail messages on their mobile phones. Each call comes from the near future. Each call has the chilling voice of the students moments before their death. And each call comes true... Does the viral spree of calls have a single source? Is there something that links the victims? Psych student Beth Raymond (Shannyn Sossamon, Rules Of Attraction) and detective Jack Andrews (Ed Burns, She's The One) scramble for answers. And they're working fast. Because Beth has just discovered an ominous message.

From Amazon.co.uk

Yet more modern technology falls prey to the influence of eeeeevil spirits in One Missed Call, a horror flick following firmly in the footsteps of The Ring, Pulse, and other remakes of Japanese creepfests. Good-looking young people are receiving voice-mails that prefigure their gruesome deaths; Beth (Shannyn Sossamon, 40 Days and 40 Nights) and Jack (Ed Burns) race against time to find the source of this cell-phone curse, leading them to a dark and treacherous burnt-out hospital. Little is fresh here--One Missed Call apes every other Japanese horror remake, using corpse makeup, blurry images at the corner of the screen or just out of sight, lots of ambient rattles and gasps, spooky-looking children, and the slow, trembling turn towards a ringing phone... which stopped being scary about four or five movies ago. But for fans of this particular subgenre, One Missed Call may evoke the warm, enjoyable familiarity that devotees of 1970s horror feel towards the repetitive output of Hammer Films. Ray Wise (Reaper, Twin Peaks) has a bit of fun as a cynical TV producer; comedian Margaret Cho has such a brief, throwaway part as a skeptical cop that one wonders if the rest of her role is on the cutting room floor; and Meagan Good (Brick, Stomp the Yard) gets prominent billing but is hardly in the movie at all. --Bret Fetzer

Format:DVD
I must admit that i wasn't really expecting much from this film when i saw it at the cinema.
It is very watchable, and at times very creepy, especially that old lady figurine. But at times the special effects are a bit naf.
And the ending is a little disappointing, i won't give it away though.
This is another run of the mill east meets west horrors in nature but does keep you watching all the way through. If the ending had been better then it would have achieved a four star, at one point in the film i thought they were going to blame the teddy bear!?! You'll understand if you watch the film!
I would recommend this film but don't pay a lot for it!
Also if you are a fan of blood and guts horror then there is nothing for you here!
Hope this helps!

2.0 out of 5 stars One Missed Call - One Dull Horror 3 Nov 2008
By Dr Evil TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
After a fire at a hospital, people begin getting phone calls to their mobiles where they have a missed call. When listening to the message that has been left they find it is from themselves in the near future at the time when they die.

I'm a big fan of J-Horror, but not so much the US remakes, but from the trailer this one actually looked pretty decent. I should however of stuck to my original instincts and not bothered. It starts off quite creepy and is fairly similar to the story in The Ring/Ringu or Shutter where supernatural forces are killing teens through modern technology. But then the story takes a turn for the worst and just becomes plain ridiculous. I actually had a good feeling at the beginning of this movie thinking it was going to be similar to Final Destination but it just went really stupid really quickly with un-scary CGI ghosts popping up all over the place and unrealistic, unlikely and extremely over the top death scenes (like when she falls off the bridge!?). It did actually have a really good twist at the end that is worth keeping watching until the credits, as my interest did pick up again in the last 15 minutes or so. For the rest of the film though I was constantly checking the timer to see how long was left as it was quite a chore to get through.

The Blu Ray picture is flawless though, so if you do actually like this film, it is definitely worth getting it in this format.

Overall this is a disappointing and uninteresting horror that is not scary in the slightest and has been seen all before in better (just) films such as The Ring, The Grudge and Dark Water. I'd highly recommend renting before buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh come on! It isn't that bad! 2 Nov 2008
Format:DVD
This film has been critically ripped apart due to many different elements, but having watched it last night, I noticed that it's certainly not as bad as what some of the critics are saying!

One Missed Call tells the tale of a contagious and deadly curse, spread amongst friends via mobile phones: People answer mysterious calls and hear themselves being brutally murdered on the other end. The original was a classic: Very creepy, emotional, and full of startling imagery... so obviously it was going to be difficult for the remake to live up to the severe expectations.

Over the past few years, we've seen so many dark-haired little girls in need of a wash appearing in the mirror etc; so by now, we should all know what we're in for when purchasing a low-budget Hollywood remake of a classic Japanese ghostly thriller. This is what annoys me when I see comments like: 'bad characterization', and, 'embarrassing acting'. Really, you cannot watch a film with this kind of history and expect it to be Oscar-worthy.

That said, One Missed Call is a really fun little movie to watch and it's also nice to see Shannyn Sossamon back in a leading role. Well-timed scares, a decent plot, some great creepy moments and a very fast pace all add up to a pretty decent night in. This is actually one to be quietly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars 1 missed call 7 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
The Ringu-like premise is promising: Someone dies; you get a call from them after they have died; you are going to die next; you need to stop yourself dying. The execution is more feardotcom-like: Utterly dire.

3.0 out of 5 stars One Missed Call is One More Like The Grudge 18 July 2009
Format:DVD
One Missed Call is in the very same vein as The Grudge or The Ring or Dark Water. It has a very J horror kind of feel that adds to a very creepy atmosphere and this film is just full of disturbing visuals that are used to their greatest effect. However, the film has some BIG drawbacks. For one you dont really care about any of the characters and it seems like they're holding back on a lot of the death scenes, making the movie about as enjoyable as White Noise 2. There is a bit of an homage to Final Destination during parts of act 1 but though interesting it doesn't make the movie a winner. The plot is a bit complicated and it kind of seems to be trying to make you afraid of your cell phone.

Worth a watch as a good popcorn kind of movie but it's not one that will stick with you unless you get really creeped out by the visuals.

5.0 out of 5 stars the brilliance of this film 30 Aug 2008
Format:DVD
Althogh this film may require a little extra thinking in parts, belive me when i say this, it is well worth it. With fantastic use of dark lighting non-diagetic sounds and sheer creepiness one missed call creates a chilling atmosphere to watch and reveales a story line making you want more - i have read the other reviews and believe me dont listen to them, when i saw the film at my local cinema i was taken back by the excellence of it and have since recomended it to all of my friends and family. Yes, the special effects are not top notch but who needs them to be brilliant when the story is so engrocing itself. Throughout the course of the film i was gripped, enthralled and made to jump by this marvelous piece of cinematogrophy.
