Together, they try to crack the mystery, and end up dealing with ghosts...

Leon van Nierop quote iconThis is one call you can definitely miss.

eye Weekly
Philip Brown quote iconOne Missed Call should hopefully be the final nail in the coffin for Hollywood’s fascination with remaking Japanese horror films.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconBased on the recent decline in box office for this sub-genre, there's reason to hope the fad may be dying out. If One Missed Call isn't another nail in the coffin, it tries hard to be one.
