A remake of the 2003 version of the same name, people begin to receive voice-mails left by their future selves. This has to be the worst remake ever put to the big scree. lame acting and horrible and lazy story, this movie is just dull and boring to sit throw.

I don't know where to start with this movie, but I don't want to talk about it too much. What a confusing mess! I have not seen the original, nor do I want to! Even though it's clearly an Eastern story wrapped in Western Hollywood garbage, it's still a ridiculously bad story. Absolutely stupid dialogue, sub-standard effects and terrible characters.And the ending was just plain awful too. The one good thing to come from it was the catchy ring-tone. That's about it. I could go on and into depth, but I hope that you have got the message by now. Utter tripe. Avoid it. You've been warned...

For once an American remake doesn't do worse than the original... unfortunately I didn't really think much of the original, and hence, this remake is just as average. You get a bunch of generic characters and generic scares and that's all.

"One Missed Call" by Yojimbo

A vengeful spirit transfers from mobile phone to mobile phone, leaving a message featuring the last words of the owner just before they are horribly killed. This film is everything that's wrong with the horror genre these days. It's the kind of film that was probably created in a "brainstorming session" by men who work in marketing called Brad and Todd, who wear red braces, play racquetball together and drink wheatgrass smoothies. They thought of the name of the movie first and then tried to fit a script around it. They had an "ideas board" upon which they "bounced ideas around" and had subheadings like "What teenagers like" with "cell phones", "hotties", "scares" and "gruesome deaths" written underneath (although not TOO gruesome-we've got to keep that 15 certificate to maximise ticket r...

One Missed Call should be One Missed Movie

I believe there is an unwritten rule in Hollywood, that when an original idea for a horror film is thought-up, it is immediately quashed by the brass and replaced with another Japanese remake thought. This must be the reason we have seen nothing new or creative since the days of George A. Romero and Stuart Gordon, but instead are subjected to Americanized rehashings of Ringu, The Grudge, (the forthcoming The Eye) and the latest, One Missed Call, Takashe Miike’s child-ghost screamie about phone calls from the dead.

Young student Beth (Shannyn Sossamon) has found herself amidst an eerie sequence of events: she is a first-hand witness to the deaths of most of her friends, is always present for their last-minute confessions and is being haunted by childhood memories of her own abuse. Befo...

I Expected Nothing, I Got Less Than Nothing

This was really hard to sit through because nothing made sense. I rarely say that about movies but this one felt like it was filmed for three days. I felt like the filmmakers didn’t even try to make a good movie. The visual effects were corny, the thrills were not present, and the characters were thick. The film immediately jumped to the scares, which was not an effective move because the audiences were not yet invested in the characters. In order words, it was hard to care. I usually like Shannyn Sossamon but even she couldn’t carry this picture. I keep picking my brain to come up with one good thing about the movie but I can’t recall one. I was bored from beginning to end; half-way through, I wanted to do something else (and I did while the movie was on). I just wish that Americans woul...
