Chakushin Ari (One Missed Call) Reviews

Miike's return to the horror genre is a slicker and less original affair than Audition, but also sharply dissects the J-horror phenomenon even as it scares the hell out of you.

There is very little in One Missed Call that we have not seen before. And yet it works.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Miike reins in his anything goes impulses...but still smuggles in his sense of humor and flair for the grotesque, often at the same time.

Even with nothing at stake emotionally, though, he conjures some real scares.

A prolonged, maddening, predictable -- yet curiously pleasurable -- descent into incomprehensibility.

The film is slow and somber during the windup but pretty scary in the follow-through.

For much of the going, Miike juggles the Asian psychothriller portfolio (elevators, clock hands, vengeful ghosts, buried family traumas) with gleeful skill.

Miike, whose work usually veers into more surreal, experimental terrain, uses creepy-crawly juxtaposition, grisly violence, and dark humor to create a nightmare scenario for the text-message generation.

A great new Asian horror movie and the ultimate proof that Miike can do anything.

Cinema em Cena

O roteiro pode não ser dos mais originais (e a conclusão deixa alguns buracos na trama), mas Miike cria um clima absolutamente assustador - algo raro no terror moderno.

At the movie's core is a mystery that simply isn't even remotely interesting...

It'd feel a whole lot creepier if it weren't exactly like that haunted videotape flick.

One Missed Call staggers under the weight of its director's taste for baroque excess.

There is something uniquely delicious in what the film says about the desperation of some cell users.

A second-rate J-horror entry that bores rather than scares.

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.
