3.0 out of 5 stars Same old number 15 Dec 2007
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Latest on the list of J-horror films to get a US makeover, One Missed Call is Takeshi Miike's Ringu/Phone ripoff, and a surprisingly low-key and tasteful (by Miike's standards) one it is too. It's also too long and suffers from an ending that's a little ambiguous in the "What's that all about, then?" way, and it seems a little awkward to have a major plot point revolve around Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy now that the condition has been widely repudiated as the invention of a vindictive misogynist who gets his jollies from giving false evidence in cot death cases. The plot involves a vengeful spirit that finds its next victims from the memory of the latest victims mobile phones, sending them a message from the future offering their last words, and the plot developments are pretty much as you'd expect. There are minor frissons in the death scenes, and there's a neat setpiece where a live Geraldo Rivera style show centered on the next victim's last few minutes goes spectacularly pear shaped, but it's also overlong and the execution is often a little too clinical for the material. Minor Miike, but once it builds up a head of steam it's an okay potboiler.

Currently working as an Account Manager for one of the World's largest telecommunications companies, having five contracted lines to my name (in addition to a "Pay As You Go" SIM card), rarely receiving bills for anything less than 100 (in a good month - and that is with discounts!) and having used three separate networks since my first flirtation with my now frighteningly-frequent text messaging, it would be safe to say that I am in a better position than most when it comes to talking about the dreaded mobile 'phone. What has to be the most frustrating time of my day is that moment when I pick my 'phone out of my bag on one of my far-too-infrequent breaks, only to find a call from a "withheld" number. Natural curiosity makes you wonder who has been calling you - and why, if it's so important to call you during your working day, would you withhold the number: I mean, how are you meant to ring that person back if you don't know who they are? Having watched "One Missed Call", however, I can now envisage one scenario more intimidating than the dreaded missed call from the withheld number ("intimidating" because you always get the feeling that the nature of the phone call would have inevitably been serious had you picked it up) - and that is the missed call from your own number, the "death-messaging call", with your voicemail merely reflecting your fear from the future - forewarning your own demise.

Briefly, "One day, Yumi's friend finds a weird voice on her cell phone. The voice sounds like hers but it ends in a bone-chilling scream. The call apparently came from her own cell phone. It's dated three days into the future. It's be easy enough to dismiss this as a prank call were it not for the fact that three days later, at the exact same time and with the exact same scream, the friend dies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lifeless Photocopy 21 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
Tacky cash-in on "The Ring", replacing the videotape with a mobile phone. Utterly shameless, this cheap-knock-off has none of the novelty of "The Ring", just cynical exploitation. I've enjoyed Ichi the Killer to the stunningly daft MPD Psycho and The Happiness of the Katakuris. This has no redemptive qualities, even the ending is cheap. Miike did this one just to pay the rent. A lifeless photocopy.
