    It was decent. A little better than The Grudge, which isn't saying much.

A smart person doesn't get into a crawl space. That's where they keep the dead bodies. Beth(Shannyn Sossamon) is the sort of heroine that inspires audience participation. When Beth isn't putting herself in harm's way, she's endangering her friends. Beth is practically an accomplice when the first male victim gets murdered. Her college friend's untimely demise is a symptom of callous neglect. Beth had witnessed the supernatural occurence with her pal's cell-phone, and should've never left the doomed girl alone. It's up to you. Beth is either a bad friend, or the victim of a bad script that renders everybody with bad judgment so the story can progress towards a convoluted fatalism. "One Missed Call" has its share of eye-popping visuals, but they're recycled from other Japanese(or Japanese-inspired) horror flicks. Expand

    Not as bad as they say. When you see the Japanese version, this will seem a comedy. Honestly I liked it, but not more than the Japanese version. Recommended for viewing with your friends.

    The original movie One Missed Call is based on was pretty tame, at least by Miike standards. And since it appears studios have no intention of halting this flood of abysmal rehashes, allow me to suggest that they at least have the stones not to pussyfoot around and give us a remake worthy of Hollywood, of America, and of an audience that lacks the willpower to stop buying tickets to half-assed crap.

    Uninspired and painfully familiar.

    The result is yet another tired, ultimately incoherent horror movie that undoes the promise of its pretty good premise and potentially interesting story structure with dull scares, sloppy ending and a pair of unconvincing, leaden lead performances.
