Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If you're a fan of modern Asian horror, I'm sure you'll check it out anyway, just keep in mind that it may not be as effective as you hope."
‑ Johnny Butane, Dread Central
"While there are no punches pulled when it comes to the bloody horror, Phone rings truest in its nerve-tingling suspense."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"[It] may be a rather unmemorable addition to Asian horror, but you'll be far too spooked to hang up before it's over."
‑ Jamie Russell,
"Apesar de alongar-se demais (chegando a incluir uma subtrama totalmente dispensável), o filme reserva boas surpresas e conta com a ótima atuação da pequena Seo-woo Eun."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"as close a knockoff to Ringu that I've seen to date"
‑ Christopher Null,
"Typically baffling Asian horror flick..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Asian horror can't go on much longer adhering to such standard rules, but for now it's frightening and effective."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
