ONE MISSED CALL (2008)
movie review by David Blackwell

87 minutes, PG-13
Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1


STARRING Shannyn Sossamon (Beth Raymond), Edward Burns (Detective Jack Andrews), Ray Wise (Ted Summers)
SCREENPLAY by Andrew Klavan,
based on the novel by Yashushi Akimoto and the screenplay by Minako Daira
DIRECTED by Eric Valette

STUDIO: Warner Bros. Pictures/ Alcon Entertainment/ Kadakowa Pictures/ Intermedia Films
theatrical RELEASE DATE: 1-4-2008

ONE MISSED CALL is the latest remake of an Asian Horror film. This time is a remake of a 2003 J-Horror film that spawned a sequel. The premise is simple. Young people receive voice mail messages in their own voice dated at the time they will die. The remake follows an attractive college co-ed (Shannyn Sossamon) who sees her friends dying around her two days after they receive the messages on their cell phones. She and a police detective (Edward Burns) track the mysterious calls to their source.

ONE MISSED CALL isn't original at all. If you have very low expectations like I did, you will like it. If you have seen many J-Horror remakes, you have seen everything in ONE MISSED CALL before. It is moviemaking by blind people. I think Shannyn Sossamon kept me watching knowing that she had better material elsewhere. It did have some unsettling iamges and a nice creepy score. However, I ddin't really care for the characters much. IT was like the script was sending them to the next scene without trying to make it feel like the characters chose their actions. Their are clues in the film that make sense once everything is revealed. However ONE MISSED CALL is something you don't care if you missedit or not. It was just a way for me to spend 90 minutes of my time.
