About the Movie
What will it sound like when you die? In "One Missed Call," a chain of people receive terrifying cell phone messages of their own final fatal moments. Though the messages can be deleted, their number is up. Beth Raymond (Shannyn Sossamon) is traumatized when she witnesses the gruesome deaths of two friends just days apart. Even more disturbing, she knows that both of them had received chilling cell phone messages -- actual recordings of their own horrifying last moments. Impossibly, the calls were received days before they died, but each death occurred precisely when and how the messages foretold. The police think Beth is delusional -- except for Detective Jack Andrews (Edward Burns) whose own sister was killed in a freak accident that bears a strange similarity to the deaths of Beth's friends. Together, Jack and Beth work feverishly to unravel the mystery behind the ominous calls. But even as they get closer to the truth, Beth's cell phone begins to ring with an eerie tune, and the readout says One Missed Call...

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A brow-furrowing blend of child abuse and adult trauma, Andrew Klavan's screenplay sacrifices coherence for atmosphere at every turn.
Rotten: To redial applicable catchphrases, this garbled American remake of Takashi Miike's already staticky 2004 exercise in J-horror is a wrong number.
Rotten: Decent if derivative.
Rotten: The direction is uninspired, acting is lifeless, and the script borders on the inept. A PG-13 rating means that it's short on shocks, too.
This is definitely one of the worst movies of 2008 so far. It's stupid, it isn't scary whatsoever, and the plot is filled with so many holes it's basically see-through. The only reason it gets 2 stars is because it's HILARIOUS (unintentionally, of course) and I did think the finale was pretty creepy. Only worth a rental at the very most.
this movie is very weird and confusing so if you like japanies based horror then rent it.
a solid pg13 horror
