One Missed Call

Rated NR

Released with no critics’ screenings, this is the type of crap we can rely on during the dumping month that is January. A remake of a Japanese horror film, One Missed Call involves terror and the cellular phone. The complicated premise has a group of people receiving phone calls from a mysterious source, and dying soon thereafter. The strange thing is, the phone calls contain their final moments before their future deaths. I’ll give director Eric Valette credit for creating a couple of scary visual moments and casting decent actors (Shannyn Sossamon and Edward Burns), but the narrative is a mess. I got the impression that this one was cut up in the editing room in order to secure a PG-13 rating—the worst thing a studio can do to a horror film. Still, I’m not sure a re-edit would save this one.
