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.
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

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!
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.
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.
Somewhat predictable but nonetheless enjoyable; the film contains enough shocks in its own right and builds a good psychological suspense as it goes along. Fans of the The Ring will not be able to stop themselves from drawing similarities, especially with the closing scene.
Worth a watch though
The film runs for 87 Minutes and there are no special features on this Blu-Ray. The picture quality and sound aren't too bad, It also comes with subtitles and Audio in English, French and Latin Spanish.
