Shannyn Sossamon and Ed Burns star in director Eric Valette's remake of Takashi Miike's frightful tale about a cell-phone call from the future that foreshadows one's own death. Beth Raymond (Sossamon) is a college student whose friends have all been dying in droves, and the one connecting factor between all of the incidents is that just before their deaths, each of the victims received a message in which they heard themselves being murdered. Upon receiving her own frightening phone call, Beth has only three days to solve the mystery and cheat death. Burns co-stars as a detective… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One big miss of a horror movie."
‑ Bob Longino, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"The direction is uninspired, acting is lifeless, and the script borders on the inept. A PG-13 rating means that it's short on shocks, too."
‑ Richard James Havis, Hollywood Reporter
"No wonder the marketers at Warner Bros. did not preview this embarrassing clunker for critics. Anyone searching for an effective supernatural-horror fix in theatres right now should visit The Orphanage instead."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"For a would-be frightfest built around a supernatural premise, One Missed Call is so glum and businesslike that it's not nearly as much pulpy fun as it should be."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screen International
"The first major release of the year is a complete dud. Shocker!"
‑ Kevin McCarthy, WJFK-FM (CBS Radio)
"It's hard to know what's scarier-the fact that Asia keeps producing these movies, or that Hollywood keeps on remaking them."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"If you missed the first One Missed Call, made in Japan in 2004, you now can miss the American remake."
‑ Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times
"The unintentional camp makes for some eye-rolling interest early on, and French director Eric Valette does manage a few hair-raising moments, but by then, the movie has missed by a mile."
‑ Tom Meek, Boston Phoenix
"The call gets through, but the signal is so weak and garbled in the cross-Pacific transit that the message is lost, leaving audience on hold, waiting for scares that never come."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"A market-spawned Happy Meal trinket lacking both skill and wisdom"
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"To redial applicable catchphrases, this garbled American remake of Takashi Miike's already staticky 2004 exercise in J-horror is a wrong number."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"The best part of the movie is the fact that, at a running time of an hour and a half, it's mercifully short."
‑ Philip Marchand, Toronto Star
"Are we really supposed to believe that, if you die angry while holding a cell phone, you can make the 'Can you hear me now?' guy throw himself in front of a bus?"
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"Oooooh, a cell phone that kills! Really? Wow! Some people might find that creepy, but it's just silly isn't it?"
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Estreando como diretor em Hollywood, o francês Eric Valette já se mistura à multidão de cineastas sem personalidade nos primeiros minutos do longa."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
