One Missed Call
People begin to received mysterious missed calls that leaves messages containing the person’s date and time of their deaths. Nobody will listen to Beth (Shannyn Sossamon) who is explaining about the phone calls and how they tie in to the deaths. But Detective Jack Andrews (Edward Burns) believes her, because of the death of his sister. Together, they are going to get to the bottom of this!
That may sound like an oversimplification of the plot, but it’s not. In fact, it makes it sound more interesting than it is. The story goes from person to person, one missed call after another, followed by two days of hallucinations – centipedes and ghostly figures – before death ensures. Even that is more interesting than this film. This is a remake of a Japanese film of the same name, and even that wasn’t particularly well received. This version is so bad it received a score of 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Far from being frightening, I found this film boring and couldn’t wait for it to end – and it’s only an hour and a half long! The writing isn’t good, neither is the direction, the acting is so-so, and the characters are forgettable. Would I recommend watching this? Hell no! I’ll give this film 1 Star and that’s all I have to say on that.
