One Missed Call Review


What will it sound like when you die? In the supernatural thriller One Missed Call, a chain of people receive terrifying cell phone messages of their own final fatal moments. Though the messages can be deleted, their number is up. Beth Raymond (Shannyn Sossamon) is traumatized when she witnesses the gruesome deaths of two friend’s just days apart. Even more disturbing, she knows that both of them had received chilling cell phone messages, actual recordings of their own horrifying last moments. Impossibly, the calls were received days before they died, but each death occurred precisely when and how the messages foretold. The police think Beth is delusional, except for Detective Jack Andrews (Edward Burns) whose own sister was killed in a freak accident that bears a strange similarity to the deaths of Beth's friends. Together, Jack and Beth work feverishly to unravel the mystery behind the ominous calls. But even as they get closer to the truth, Beth's cell phone begins to ring with an eerie tune, and the readout says One Missed Call.

My Review: This movie was very lame. Not worth the money, time, or effort. Good thing I saw it for free. Not scary…well maybe jumpy to girls but that’s it. Even people into this type of horror will be disappointed. Worst film of 2008 so far and I bet it takes the cake on 12-31-08 also.
