Critic Reviews for Phone (Pon)
If you're a fan of modern Asian horror, I'm sure you'll check it out anyway, just keep in mind that it may not be as effective as you hope.
Apesar de alongar-se demais (chegando a incluir uma subtrama totalmente dispensável), o filme reserva boas surpresas e conta com a ótima atuação da pequena Seo-woo Eun.
While there are no punches pulled when it comes to the bloody horror, Phone rings truest in its nerve-tingling suspense.
as close a knockoff to Ringu that I've seen to date
Audience Reviews for Phone (Pon)
A journalist hiding out from a paedophile ring she exposed changes her number and begins receiving disturbing calls that seem to affect her young neice. Phone is basically Ringu with a mobile, and that's all you really need to know. It lifts elements directly from that film, Ju On and Dark Water and does little to add to the mixture in its own right. Girl gets phone call, she tentatively answers it, there's screaming, a ghostly apparition of a girl appears in mirrors yadda yadda yadda. There is literally NOTHING here you won't have seen before. The direction is clumsy and patronizing and I was frankly bored for the majority of it. It did pique my interest a little for the final scenes which (finally) explained what happened to Teen Ghost, but some of the absurd plot contrivances in getting there were just too hard to swallow. I was impressed by the performance of the young girl, but as a whole its just J horror by numbers.
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
Possibly the best part of this film was the last 10 minutes. It?s a watchable story which was not as predicatble as I had anticipated, but a little drawn out.
