Director: Miike Takashi
One day, Yumi's (Kou Shibasaki) friend finds a weird voice message on her cell phone. The voice sounds like hers but it ends in a bone-chilling scream. The call apparently came from her own cell phone. It's dated three days into the future. It'd be easy enough to dismiss as a prank call were it not for the fact that three days later, at the exact same time and with the exact same scream, the friend dies. The coincidences begin to pile up as the circle of cell phone death warnings, widens. Until one day, Yumis realizes that she’s also got one missed call!

Professional Review of "One Missed Call (2003) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)"
I can imagine director Miike lecturing a group of open-mouthed students: "Just because a film has a supernatural evil killing people in grisly (and gristly) ways, doesn't mean it can't be fun." And this is, both grisly (and gristly) and fun.
The central theme of this film is the cell phone warnings of impending death, which comprise a message, from the doomed to themselves, containing their last words. Now I don't know about you, but if I received a message from a future me which said "Oh no, it's raining" then screamed in a blood-curdling fashion, I'd remember never to comment on the weather. Lips clamped shut under all drippy provocation would be me, but not so Miike's first victim. Perhaps she was too busy thinking about new ring tones or something, but she utters the fateful line and is duly despatched.
Subsequent victims also forget this crucial principle of phone etiquette, to their short-lived regret. This provided an air in the cinema almost of pantomime: instead of shouting "Look behind you!" the audience groaned in unison each time someone unwittingly announces their own imminent death. There was a general ripple of relieved laughter at other times, too: the equivalent of the pantomime hero unwittingly elbowing the stalking monster off the stage.
There's a nice stab at reality television, which is about as subtle as a train smash. I'm not a devotee of this bargain-basement genre, and I confess to more than one snigger as Miike took aim and blasted away with both barrels. The notion of a TV producer promoting a special as "The co-ed marked for death. Will she survive? Find out at..." is both incredible and far too believable. It's a sad sad world.
So, who should see this? Well, anyone who likes suspense and isn't put off by a bit of gore and dismemberment. And anyone who answers their phone in the middle of a lecture or a film, because I'm always hopeful of social change.

|I have issues...I dont get scared often...the slower the horror, the less i get scared and the faster i get bored. (ei- Ju-On put me to sleep). This movie is a slow moving horror. But it scared me. WHy you ask? i have one theory: I made a connection with the characters...in Ju-On, i didnt care if the main character died...in Ringu i didnt care...in Dark Water i didnt care...in almost every horror movie ive ever seen i didnt care if the people died. But in this movie i did care. I felt like i wanted to save the characters from the ghost girl. I think that this is one of the best horrors ive ever seen.|

|After watching this ju on and all the other j horror films felt like garbage this was actually one film that I saw which was more scarier than the other j horror films. Its true that some pro critics rated this low due to the story, but wut the heck there was a ton of random and spontaneous scary sceness. Trust me this movie was awsome.|

|The movie was overall entertaining & scary(problaly bcos of the speciel effects), BUT I got confuse with the story-line.Why did the girl stack her little sister with a knife??..and then turn into an evil ghost killing ppl after she died of her ashma attack??...shouldn`t it be her little sister who should be haunting ppl(if the lil`sis had died :) )..I mean the big`sis didn`t died innocently, she was the committer...and there is were other scenes that made me very irritated, (just 2 much into the movie *hehe )why did the leading actress keep trying 2 stop her friend from getting on the tv-show but instead come with her...like she ONE person could protect her while hundreds of other ppl and some with spirituel power couldn`t....AND on live tv! so atleast they weren`t alone.......juz some irritating moments that bugs the heck out of me!! :)and there are some other scenes that that made my head boil, but that I will not go into detail now...that was my view!! if some have other oppinion juz let me know..hi folks!!|

|this is a good movie. i have seen many other japanese and korean horror films, and this is so better than the other junk out there. however, i thought the ending was pretty 'what-the-heck?', because i don't get it at all! endings are so essential in films. and this one gives a totally abstract and blotchy ending. i'm really really disappointed in the ending. because i really really think this is a good movie. *kicks ending* NNGGGHHH|
