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

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!

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.

an average horror, slightly spooky and very much like th ring ect, worth watching but maybe not owning, if you are lucky enough to have surround sound it helps, but on the whole it is ok

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.

Format: DVD
As one reviewer states - had this been made 15 years ago - it might have more impact, but after the series of american remakes of atmospheric japanese horrors - the next re-incarnation of a tormented soul killing individuals through a 'new' medium is a well trod path, appears highly derivative and follows all the usual trademarks.

Part final destination in the way they get killed off one by one.

Poor, poor script - i was watching it in bed whilst my girlfriend was preparing some work for the next day - so i turned the volume low and put on subtitles - the fact i could read the actual script rathe than just hearing it simply highlighted how little effort had gone into it.

The acting from the cast is again poor, the only memorable thing being how bad the acting by the Cop Andrews was. it reminded me of the sort of acting you see on american soaps or the kind of soft porn you used to see on channel 5 years back.

Yes there are a few jumpy scenes and lots of tortued faces throughout - just like the grudge and the ring before it. As other reviewers have pointed out most of the shock is simply form a loud jolt of high pitched strings. All of them are highly predicatble having seen so many films like this before. and many have nothing to do with the development of the plot/film either.

there are a couple of more effective tense scenes at the end - but the build up really isnt worth the wait.

I didn't feel any warmth or compassion for anyone in it - the plot is bordering on ludicrous. the finale isnt engaging as it should be.

I suppose you might like this film if you are new to this genre and unfamilair with the jumpy nature of the shocks or possibly a teenager who hasnt seen much of this japanese horror remake type of film.
