4.0 out of 5 stars spooooooky, 30 Mar 2008

This review is from: One Missed Call [2007] [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I love ringu so I am not going to try and compare this movie 'cos it would be unfair. Many people are trying to lump Japanese ghost movies into a 'hair' catagory, but think about it. In Japan it is popular for girls to have long hair and as a culture it tends to mostly be black in colour. It stands to reason that the female ghost may well have long black hair, well DUH!! Ok that's my little rant out of the way.
One missed call is a genuinely scary movie. Japan as well as most places is riddled with mobile phone technology and as such everyone can be reached constantly by everyone else and everything else. That left me with a feeling of 'no escape', a feeling that doesn't leave you throughout this movie. Basically, it's another decent ghost movie and definately gave me a feeling of dread. If you only love Ringu or Ju on and think that they have a monopoly on ghosts with long black hair GET REAL!!! Chinese ghosts have hair too you know (sarcasm). Just stop it and prepare yourself for another great asian ghost movie.
I'm off to buy the sequels!!
