The direction is uninspired, acting is lifeless, and the script borders on the inept.

Entertainment Weekly

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
One Missed Call was originally a so-so Takashi Miike freak-out. Now it's a worse-worse American eyesore.

Wait For It to Come Out on Video

By somegirl28
Another poor remake of a Japanese horror flick that leaves you wondering why you actually paid money to be left unsatisfied. Although the movie does provide moments of fright, the ending is far less...
