The original One Missed Call was so much better than its remake. The ringtone is iconic and creepy, I even downloaded it and would make it my personal ringtone. Kou Shibasaki was a great actress. The singing teddy bear? Gave me chills. It was just so good. The story may be confusing but still a good film.

Over-the-top Japanese Horror
Dancing Ganesha | Bangalore, India | 05/07/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Audacious and over-the-top, "One Missed Call" definitely has its frightening moments.

This film isn't as moody or detached as the more intelligent "Seance" or "Dark Water," and it may not have the solemn intensity of "Ju-Rei" or the dreaminess of "Wishing Stairs;" however, it is in a class of its own: it is pure entertainment, Japanese-style. The result is bombastic dramatics, at times gory, but also incredibly frightening (especially nearing the end).

This film seems to have some common imagery and lighting effects in the same manner as "The Sisters," although the latter, in my personal opinion, was a much more intelligent and thoughtful film. Still, "One Missed Call" does deliver a good dose of old-fashion scariness and will probably appeal to Americans as a result, as most Asian horror moves at too slow a pace for American viewers to handle. Try this one out if you don't like Asian horror -- you might just approve."

"Maybe I have been watching too many horror movies lately, but I hardly need to close my eyes or flinch anymore. Not so with this incredibly frightening and creepy movie. This movie is effectively scarey with minimal gore or "jump" scenes. Nice twist on the angry ghost theme as well.
Good acting. I especially liked the spunky Yumi. The sound is a bit disjointed at times, but overall this is a worthwhile watch.
To change to subtitled version
MM360 | Chicago, IL | 12/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"(For Chicoer2003 . . .) My copy seems to automatically revert to the dubbed English version, too. To change, select movie set-up on the main menu- Japanese language- English subtitles to get the director's intended version. I am a fan of Kou Shibasaki and dubbing her voice as well as all the other actors seems corny and detracts from the horror element. I personally prefer subtitles and interestingly find I must raise the volume when watching foreign films.

I found "One Missed Call" quite enjoyable and scary though it could be slow at times. The ending had a nice twist that kept you thinking (I won't disclose here). It says a lot about a movie if, after watching, you are still interested in the 2nd disc with extras, and I was. Enjoy!"
