Movie Info

Ahn Byeong-ju's Pon (Phone) is a psychological horror film. Ha Ji-weon portrays Ji-weon, an investigative reporter who is receiving unsettling calls on her cellular phone. Ji-weon's decision to stay with friends for a while leads to the friends' child Yeong-ju (Eun Seo-woo) being traumatized after the girl accidentally answers Ji-weon's phone. Eventually, it is discovered that the preceding owners of that cell phone's number have died. A missing teenager, a secret from the past, and some very disturbing behavior from Yeong-ju all play a part in the final unraveling of the plot. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    This is an outstanding Film. As with all Asia Horror US writers have a lot to learn from our fellow film makers in the west. No doubt someone will copy this korean made film that falls along with Ju-On and The Ring. Intense thriller is more like it, but ending gets a little creepy. A good rainy night thunder storm film. Seems everyone with the last 4 digets 6644 of this phone number is dying, find out why. 4 Stars

    another Japanese movie borrowed from Ernie just don?t remember the American Remake name. I saw it before but its not on my movie viewed list so not sure if I ever Reviewed it. This is a creepy movie (my question is what?s with all the hair when it comes to the creepy Japanese movies? Phone, & I think Ju-on & a few others I?ve seen.) journalist Ji-Won starts receiving phone calls from beyond after having changed her phone number & moving in to her sister?s home. She investigates that the people who had the number before her all died unusual deaths. While at an art gallery Her ?niece? Yeong-ju picks up Ji-won?s phone & starts screaming scared of the sound from the earpiece. After this Yeong-ju's behavior starts to change. Ji-Won tries to find out the original owner of the phone before something happens to Yeong-ju. This movie actually gives me the chills & made me jump in a part or two. Maybe watch it on a rainy day (esp. with Thunder & Lighting) C+
