Routine horror with a confusingly drawn-out finale.

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

Slant Magazine

A mainstream J-horror flick that dutifully regurgitates the apparitions, aesthetic, and themes of its genre predecessors.

More annoying than answering a wrong number phone call.

No more than Miike's shot at generating a polished, rote, expertly composed J-horror flick.

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

We slog through several seemingly endless scenes of teenage girls checking their voicemail while we peer at them from around corners. Yes, it is as boring as it sounds.

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

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

One missed opportunity to bring something new to a tired genre.

Relies on scare tactics not very well done.

All we really learn is that Japanese scream queens and kings can act as poorly as their stateside counterparts.

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.

Austin Chronicle

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

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.

Pablo Villaca
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.

| Original Score: 4/5

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.

| Original Score: 3/4

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.
