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

Product Description

A remake of the Japanese horror film Chakushin Ari, One Missed Call stars Edward Burns and Shannyn Sossamon.

Beth Raymond (Shannyn Sossamon) is terrified by the deaths of four friends, three of which she personally witnessed, after they received chilling phone calls apparently from themselves in the future, showing the exact time of their deaths. After every death, a small red candy is found in the victim's mouth. Beth reports these strange occurrences to the police; however, they think she is delirious. Detective Jack Andrews (Edward Burns), however, believes her, stating that his sister died in a similar way. Together, they begin to unravel the mystery of the chain of calls, but are unsure if they can figure it out before Beth's phone starts to ring the same eerie tune.

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!

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.

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.

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 Okay, just something lacking. 27 Aug 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Mixed bag this.
The Blu-Ray sound and picture is really good, and sadly better than this film probably deserves.

Basically the premise sounds good, the acting is reasonable and it's pretty fast paced.
The problem is I've seen it all before, and done better.
Maybe I'm just a little jaded after seeing so many films like this but basically it left me a little bit bored.

I can't put my finger on exactly what didn't work, but it just felt a little bit lacking, just an okay film, purchased at a reasonable price to pass a couple of hours.

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Subtlety. It's what makes Japanese horror so effective - and American remakes of same so ineffective. Japanese horror directors have mastered the art of subtlety, but it's still an alien concept in Hollywood, which explains how a remake that follows the original film's story fairly closely can turn out unrealistic at best - and downright silly at worst. Hollywood thinks CGI is the answer to everything, especially in horror movies, and I'm at a loss as to explain why they continue to think the C in CGI stands for creepiness when it certainly does not. You just have to observe this film's potentially creepiest moment, which is thoroughly destroyed by a moment of CGI utter silliness. Famed director Takashi Miike made Chakushin Ari (One Missed Call [2004] (REGION 1) (NTSC)), the original Japanese version of this film, one of the creepiest horror movies I had seen in a long time. Having loved that film so much, and having seen other great J-horror films turned inside out by American directors, I did not have the highest of hopes for this remake. It actually turned out a little better than I expected - but it's still the palest of reflections of Chakushin Ari.

The basic premise of the story is that people start receiving calls on their cell phones recording the moments of their own deaths. The phone calls come from each individual's own cell phone number, feature the same creepy ringtone, and are always dated a day or two in the future, thus revealing the exact time of that person's death. Then, when each such death actually takes place (just as it was recorded on the cell phone messages), someone in the victim's list of saved phone numbers is automatically selected to be the next phone call recipient.
