      Critics Consensus

      One of the weakest entries in the J-horror remake sweepstakes, One Missed Call is undone by bland performances and shopworn shocks.

      Mark M Look! There's a difference between a horror movie and a horrible movie.This is one of those movies with great concepts but fail to execute these concepts perfectly and understandable. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/22/24 Full Review Carson S absolutely fantastic. inspiring characters, thrilling story, and geniusly written. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/11/23 Full Review Cameron P If "One Missed Call" leaves the audience with anything—which it is unlikely to do—it's that the popularity of the J-horror-remake genre doesn't mean its movies will be good, or even coherent. This film strives for mediocrity but fails to achieve even this goal of predictable B-level couch fare. Beth Raymond (an awful Shannyn Sossamon), after the gruesome, mysterious deaths of two of her friends, joins grieving detective Jack Andrews (Edward Burns) to uncover the evil spirit lurking in mysterious voicemails people receive of their own deaths. But any slivers of hope for this film are shredded as plotlines jump together with little rationality and horrible acting drags this movie into the abyss. Sossamon has a blank face for nearly the entire movie, and when she does try to act scared, she ends up a melodramatic mess. Not to mention the characters are as one-dimensional and have as little common sense as to be expected from a disastrous horror movie like this, with unrealistic emotional responses—or the lack thereof—and climbing into dark tunnels for the fun of it. Behind the film-school-reject-quality acting and laughable plot, you'd still find nothing but amateurish effects (unfinished 3D bugs and body heat steam, for example), camerawork too distant to be personable but too nosy for any hope of technical proficiency, and cinematography more cliché than the plot—if that's possible. The only people that could ever enjoy this movie are those who have never watched a horror film—or any movie—before, or those who enjoy truly trashy terror—and even these "target demographics" will likely be disappointed. If Eric Valette's shockingly dumb horror movie dials you, don't bother—you'll be glad you didn't pick up this "Call." Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/23/23 Full Review Quinn G No plot at all. But if you're looking for a good laugh. You will not find that either. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Not really a 5 star but the rating should come up because it is a watchable horror. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/28/23 Full Review Kaylene D Everyone is allowed their own opinion, but to rate this movie any more then 3 stars is completely tone deaf. What the original J-Horror movie shined in, the remake just dropped the ball on; the kills were just boring & lacking in the creepiness & off putting feeling the original did so well. I did really enjoy the fact that the ringtone is equally as creepy as the one before. & I did appreciate that the story was interesting although slightly different from the original. The movie does have some redeeming qualities if you watch it with no knowledge of the original J-Horror. But if you have watched the J-Horror then you may find this one a bit on the disappointing side. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Ben Kenigsberg Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 18, 2011 Full Review Joshua Rothkopf Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Bob Longino Atlanta Journal-Constitution One big miss of a horror movie. Rated: D Oct 18, 2008 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com While not the disaster one might expect, the film remains one call you won't regret missing. Rated: 1.5/4.0 Sep 18, 2020 Full Review Scott Weinberg TheHorrorShow It's not even remotely scary, which leaves the horror fans out. But it's also way too boring to even poke fun at. Aug 28, 2015 Full Review Mark Palermo The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia) One Missed Call remakes Takashi Miike's 2003 film as undistinguished college-age horror, except it tries to exploit some people's fear of answering the phone into a feature-length premise.
