Burns/Sossamon/Skye ~ One Missed Call
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 f! eel 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 --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

It starts off with a little girl being led away from a burning hospital and the people with her asking where her mummy is. This is actually a crucial but overlooked at the beginning part of the film...
It then skips to a woman whose phone has apparently been ringing, she gets up to look at her cat which has moved across to her pond in her garden...then a few jumpy moments and the first deaths.
Slowly everyone who is in some way linked to the hospital and college end up receiving a call from their future dead self, a day or two before they die. The call is dated the time and date and ends up with a voice mail which says a couple of the sounds/phrases which will surround that persons death. The ringtone is incredibly catchy for this. When they die a red hard candy ends up in their mouth, which the police officer realises once his own sister is killed by this curse and he views her.
In the end will anyone survive or will they all succumb to the missed call curse?
Don't want to give away the story any more than this.....
This film is quite good in parts, and does have a few unpredictable twists and turns, special effects are not too bad and the film is definitely watchable and enjoyable.
I think it is better than the Grudge and The Ring which are similar in terms of Japanese horror remade for English audiences.
