WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Film Threat by

One Missed Call plays like a good cover song. It's not just a repetition of the previous tune.

The New York Times by Lawrence Van Gelder

Where "Ringu" derived its power from the simplicity of its premise and the purity of its execution, One Missed Call staggers under the weight of its director's taste for baroque excess.

Portland Oregonian by Marc Mohan

Even with nothing at stake emotionally, though, he conjures some real scares, and the finale is as much a head-scratcher as a heart-stopper -- in a good way.

Village Voice by Michael Atkinson

One Missed Call, one of the five movies he made in 2003, is no more than Miike's shot at generating a polished, rote, expertly composed J-horror flick.

Entertainment Weekly by Owen Gleiberman

One Missed Call is so unoriginal that the movie could almost be a parody of J-horror tropes, yet Miike, for a while at least, stages it with a dread-soaked visual flair that allows you to enjoy being manipulated.
