One Missed Call is one of the most known japanese horror movies exept from The Grudge & The Ring.. This is not atall a movie for older or easily scared people..

A Strange deal of events have been happening lately and Lots of people have passed away. Yumi can't seem to put her finger on what these events are caused by. So many people don't just decide to go and commit suicide. read more As she starts connecting the dots she eventually comes to one conclusion.. What is the one thing all the ''Suicides'' have in common? They all recieved a phonecall before they died.. A Phonecall from their own Cellphone.. Doubtful about this fact in the start She decides to keep this theory to herself.. It is no way something like this can Occur right?
As The Movie proceeds it will scare and shock you in ways you never even saw coming as The Movie will be a horror movie with a little bit of romance concluded..

What would you do if you got a One Missed Call from your own cellphone? Leaving a message of your own voice right before you are about to die.. This is what Yumi struggles with while trying to keep her sanity.. A Movie Recommended for horror lovers. Its a good movie with a good ending.. Watch it, You won't be dissapointed.. But you might get Scared...

One Missed Call is a movie everyone has probably at least heard of. For a horror movie fan it is almost like a staple, alongside The Ring and Grudge series. However, for me, it was not the best BUT it was more than okay. The story was original with a haunted phone, but it was another vengeful ghost story. What I really liked about the movie was the more mystery thriller tone read more rather than pure ghost driven themes - like with some movies i.e. The Grudge (Ju-On). I found myself a little surprised at times and even nervous at other moments.

The acting was pretty good. Nothing seemed exaggerated or sub-par. I didn't really find any new favorites but I didn't hate any of the cast members. They filled their roles well and seemed to work together well; there were no awkward moments or insincere times that I could catch.

As for music, it wasn't bad, but it was not stand out either. it seemed to be sort of your typical horror music to build suspense or draw attention to scenes. The sound effects fit well and nothing was distracting. I found it to be just "alright".

This movie could be rewatched, but I probably won't rewatch it. This would be good for Japanese movie fans and horror fans - it would be good to watch and compare to the American counterpart. For anyone wondering about my score, I have also seen the American version and I like this version better but I"m not a huge fan of either one. I would say it is good to watch once, especially if you have nothing else to watch. That being said, I will finish the series just so I can say I have seen them all. I might like the others better.

Both involve curses of vengeful spirits, while one is Japanese and one is Korean they both have really good plots that will make you think twice about pissing off a ghost girl.

    story moves along well, but leaves you blank and confused. No explanations are offered..some graphic scenes, too many loose ends..
