This movie seemed so over-the-top I didn't expect to be scary. But what do you know, it scared me when I least expected it. Creepy horror flicks, mutter, mutter. The move in question is One Missed Call, the Japanese horror from 2004. And yea, they did remake a Hollywood version of this one although I am not sure how it fared. Since I am not big on remakes I will ignore that one.
Alright, once you hear the story, you'll know what I mean. The overall plot is a rehashing of the story from Ring. However, instead of a cursed video tape, this one contains a dangerous phone message. Which is preceded by a cutesy ring tone. Come on, that's too funny to be scary! And just like in Ring, folks who receive this call die in horrible ways.
