I don't know what everybody's problem is. I guess these reviewers need a lot of sadistic gore (via Saw)to deem a horror movie watchable. OK, when I finally got to rent the movie (it seemed to always be out), I was disappointed to discover it was PG-13. So, after disappointing unrated junk like Dead Silence, I went in with very low expectations, and was delightfully surprised. This movie was creepy and tense and had many disturbing images and didn't have to resort to cheap (or expensive) gore effects to tell the story. And that haunting ringtone is still with me! A psych student and a cop race against time to find the source of a cell phone caller who calls intended victims from a dead person's cell with their own voices at their last moments of life...a day or two before it happens. (Yes, it seems that Japanese horror formulas follow the whole I saw/heard this and now have 24 hours to live). I will not spoil the movie with details, but it is very creepy and some of the images are sure nightmare-inducing. If you are bothered by gore but like a scary movie, I recommend this one. The acting is good, and it's always nice to see Twin peaks' Ray Wise acting again. My only complaint is that the victims aren't DRIVERS on their cell phones. At least they would deserve the abuse!

I don't care for slasher movies with too much gore, but I love a movie that makes my heart pound, and this one did just that. It did have a little gore that I could have lived without, but it was a small price to pay for the heart racing excitement.

It wasn't the best thing is existence, and it is a bit dated (The strangeness and intrigue of phones isn't really there anymore now that they're pretty normalized, taking a bit away from the movie) but this was decent and worth a watch.

I do have to give it props for being suffencetly scary without the use any cheap tricks we're all sick of seeing. (Jumpscares, excessive gore, ect.)

The resolution was really interesting an unexpected, but after that, the "twist" was seen a mile away.

Edward Burns can make a bad movie great and he helped make this good movie superb. I thoroughly enjoyed it but I seem to remember the Oriental orignal version as beeing a bit "creepier". I cannot find that movie now though. I wish there was a way for someone to contact me with info on how to find the original and exactly what its name was

i dont understand the bad reviews. this is a excellent creepy movie especially for the price. i see a lot of bad reviews for this movie and i try to understand them when your only paying $5. Its not the best horror movie but its well worth $5 for some scares with friends and family. remember this is a bluray NOT a dvd and only $5

The quality of the movie is great but the movie itself isnt. Its worth watching if you fancy cheesy horror movies with a million plot holes. I got a few laughs out of it and it was entertaining but I probably wont watch it again.

First off, I am very, VERY aware this is another Japanese horror remake. And this time they picked out a film by the equally famous and infamous Miike Takashi. ...Did they ever pick out the weak film of his lot. His 2004's 'One Missed Call' may have been a hit, but I'm guessing on the same level that many of our American slasher flicks are a hit here, despite not being very good or memorable. Ghost stories may be popular in Japanese horror, but I liked Takashi's more left-field films, like 'The Audition' and 'Ichi the Killer.' There's a reason no one's gone in for the remake yet. Why bother? They're still awesome as they are!

Unfortunately, as far as remakes go, 'One Missed Call' looks like a poor excuse for a clone of the earlier and far superior Japanese remake, 'The Ring.' Both focused on technology, killing good looking college aged kids, ghosts, child abuse, and a race against time to stop a pattern based curse from spiraling out of control. And let's face it, even in The Ring, these plots are a stretch to the imagination. I don't know anyone who freaks out upon finding an unmarked videotape, and I highly doubt anyone will be afraid to pick up their cell phones or check their messages.

Like in the Ring, the story starts with the picking off of a bunch of arbitrary characters who receive a call from themselves in the future, and get a voicemail of themselves when they die. Beth (Sossamon) is witness to this and wants to get to the bottom of the curse, but nobody takes her seriously, and who can blame them? So she enlists the help of one detective, Andrews (Burns), who does believe her, only because something similar happened to his sister, so he has a motive and reason to help.

I'll give 3 stars to the story. It was just an average thriller. But...I would like to give 5 stars each to Shannyn Sossamon and Ana Claudia Talancon. Those two beauties are worth the price of the rental! I don't understand why these two actresses are not more popular. I'd say it's worth a peek just to watch their performances..
