It basically follows the standards that Ringu set up. Some vengeful ghost sends warnings out to people before it kills them. There is even the funeral scene after the first death, where a school girl tells the female lead all about the myth. And also just when you think it is over at the end, the ghost comes back for one last scare. Not very much character depth or plot depth. Just a very very good exercise in trying to scare the audience, which works very well here in One Missed Call as it did with Ringu.



It does start out somewhat pedestrian, but the second half kicks into overdrive and displays all the great things I;ve come to love with Asian horrors. Prepare for head sctraching...



Anyone seen this gem?

Looking forward to seeing this... Miike has so many movies, it's so hard to keep track of them. Smile
