One Missed Call (2008)
The film is a remake from the Japanese terror film of 2003 and they aimed the teenage audiences because they have knowledge how addicted the teens with certain devices.
The story starts when the hospital was accidentally burned and a young girl together with her teddy bear is looking sadly in the direction of a raging inferno. She has been saved by the fire fighters, but she did not say any word to them. A lot of people have been dead because of fire and the girl’s sister is another victim as well. After that, a child lapse in her personal backyard pool together with her cat. But the truth is she didn’t commit suicide as everyone is thinking. Something pulled her in the water and murdered her. From then, her cell phone begins acting weird and then followed by the introductions of the casts of the movie by the director.
Shannyn Sossamon played as Beth Raymond and her friend Azura Skye played as Leann Cole who gets an odd phone call in her personal future tone and the day of the call is in the future also. Because of that she discovers the precise time of her death and a free pleasure to her personal freaked out voice during her dying time. She did not think about it until she sees spirits, ghosts, reapers all around her and weird insects on other people. Beth begins to think about the weird miss call and death time theory, right after she witness Leann die fronting her and again the phone is dialling another number in Leann’s phone book after Leann is dead. She informs the police regarding the mystery but as expected, they discharge her theory. Edward Burns played as Detective Jack Andrews is in homicide case and his sister had also been dead under odd reasons. They team up as one, right after equally warning deaths took place with Beth’s friends. They discover a common feature with the dead people and they were all related and were in the phone contacts of each other and lastly, in their mouth, they all had an orange candy after their deaths. In one way or another, all these happenings were connected to the girl’s mother who was rescued from the blazing hospital.
The movie is not really that great, especially in the part where most of the artists who played college kids in the film looked older than what they are playing. The movie is still enjoyable. And the final part bummed me out too. You will witness what I am trying to say just after you watch the film. The bothering of the phone is quite p actually, and casts at some point tried in despair to injure their phones by simply smashing it, throwing in the aquarium, remove the batteries and even cancelled their subscriptions too, but in the end nothing works.
The good point in watching this film is to watch it alone and you will see that it is a good one.
