It's not even remotely scary, which leaves the horror fans out. But it's also way too boring to even poke fun at.

One Missed Call remakes Takashi Miike's 2003 film as undistinguished college-age horror, except it tries to exploit some people's fear of answering the phone into a feature-length premise.

No wonder the marketers at Warner Bros. did not preview this embarrassing clunker for critics. Anyone searching for an effective supernatural-horror fix in theatres right now should visit The Orphanage instead.

The unintentional camp makes for some eye-rolling interest early on, and French director Eric Valette does manage a few hair-raising moments, but by then, the movie has missed by a mile.

Are we really supposed to believe that, if you die angry while holding a cell phone, you can make the 'Can you hear me now?' guy throw himself in front of a bus?

For a would-be frightfest built around a supernatural premise, One Missed Call is so glum and businesslike that it's not nearly as much pulpy fun as it should be.

The call gets through, but the signal is so weak and garbled in the cross-Pacific transit that the message is lost, leaving audience on hold, waiting for scares that never come.

Oooooh, a cell phone that kills! Really? Wow! Some people might find that creepy, but it's just silly isn't it?

The first major release of the year is a complete dud. Shocker!

Estreando como diretor em Hollywood, o francês Eric Valette já se mistura à multidão de cineastas sem personalidade nos primeiros minutos do longa.

...not the worst horror movie I've ever seen, but it is among the more tedious.

Poorly conceived, badly cast and frequently dull horror film that fails in its quest to make mobile phones scary.

Those coming to One Missed Call in search of ground-breaking horror have definitely dialed the wrong number.

Here's the first in what promises to be a series of movies that are "January junk."

Do yourself a favor and go rent any Miike film other than this one. You've got somewhere in the vicinity of 75 from which to choose.
