    Richard James Havis The Hollywood Reporter

    The direction is uninspired, acting is lifeless, and the script borders on the inept. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    The result is yet another tired, ultimately incoherent horror movie that undoes the promise of its pretty good premise and potentially interesting story structure with dull scares, sloppy ending and a pair of unconvincing, leaden lead performances. show more

    Chicago Tribune

    While director Eric Valette provides the occasional chill, the disturbing spooks aren't enough to make this boat float. Burns sleepwalks through One Missed Call totally devoid of charisma, and Sossamon muddles along, going through the motions. show more

    Give this call a miss. show more

    With his preferences for static, colorless visuals and exposition-laden dialogue over conversation, director Valette has now set the bar for the worst film of 2008. show more

    One Missed Call was originally a so-so Takashi Miike freak-out. Now it's a worse-worse American eyesore. show more

    The original movie One Missed Call is based on was pretty tame, at least by Miike standards. And since it appears studios have no intention of halting this flood of abysmal rehashes, allow me to suggest that they at least have the stones not to pussyfoot around and give us a remake worthy of Hollywood, of America, and of an audience that lacks the willpower to stop buying tickets to half-assed crap. show more

    This garbled American remake of Takashi Miike's already staticky 2004 exercise in J-horror is a wrong number. show more

    Compared to the original film, this American version was tame and a bit lame. No real scary moments that weren't unexpected and the ending was nothing like the original. The ending didn't make much sense except to leave it open for a sequel. It did, however, move more quickly than the original. I still prefer the original Japanese version and I must say that I am glad I waited to rent it rather than going to the theatre to see it. Real scary movie goers--don't waste your time. See the original. Those who scare easily, you'll probably like it.

    Don't waste your money on this movie. It may be scary for those who are easily scared, but if you're a hardcore horror movie'r, then don't waste your money. Everything in this movie is predictable, from the "scary" parts, to the dramatic parts, it's all predictable, and instead of while most horror movies give you information on the killer, this movie gives none, so you're shocked and confused at the end.
