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. 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 known as somewhat of a cult classic within the west. There's that remake we don't talk about much that people watched once and then went to watch this original. Thankfully, I managed to skip the White remake and got to watch the original without having the bad taste of remake in my mouth first. I'm glad I managed to watch this one first – and probably definitely won't watch the remakes.

One Missed Call is probably the medium that started that old email chain mail - remember how paranoid you used to get recieving an email saying if you don't pass it on to so many people some scary thing will kill you during your sleep? Welp, if that terrified you, you probably want to stay away from this movie. Meanwhile if paranoia creeping down your spine everytime you hear your phone ring or vibrate is something you want, then watch on.

I'm not quite sure what I was expecting from this movie. I knew the general premise and at first, it seemed more like Final Destination than anything else. It's not really until the third character that anything really starts to happen, and things get spooky.

Maybe I'm more desensitised to horror than I originally thought. The music didn't do me justice personally, nor the acting; none of these actually scared me. It wasn't until we see the things happening that things got scary for me. That was more all down to the darkness effect used for me, more than anything. I think if I hadn't seen as much horror that uses the same effects, I would have been more scared by this and more on edge.
There were two different plot lines occuring nearer the end and it got quite confusing for me to figure out what was going on between all the characters. There was a lot happening, and I think the second plot line could have been dropped or made much simpler.

I probably wouldn't rewatch this. Maybe once if I don't watch the sequel/s until further into the future and I want to remind myself what happened in the first; that would be the only reason. The ending for the first film alone ends it all very well, and doesn't leave much room for another movie; I'm not sure if I'm excited to see where they'd take a second movie, or if I want to leave it rounded off as it was.

Overall, this does have a good scare factor. It's enjoyable, the plot is well enough that you can sit through it without being bored even if it's not scary to you. It's a good movie if you haven't seen it, and I definitely recommend it.
