Horror Trailer Friday: Japanese Remake One Missed Call
The studios are jumping on the release of Rob Zombie's Halloween this Labor Day weekend to throw every other upcoming horror film trailer into the mix. Yesterday it was The Mist, then this morning it was The Signal, and now it's One Missed Call. This remake from a 2003 Japanese horror film titled Chakushin ari stars Ed Burns and Shannyn Sossamon and doesn't look like anything extraordinary. They're saving it for dumping early next January, so take a look and determine if you'll be making your way to the theaters once we hit New Years Day.
And is it just me, or is the cell phone jingle that is used when you're called to die actually kind of catchy. I think I need to change my ringtone…

Looks kinda cool even though i am tired of the japanese remakes. At least it didnt have some young japanese girl with long black hair. Alex when you get that tone i want it too.

It is going to ruin the original Japanese version. The Japanese version creeped the hell out of me, but that is what made it a great horror movie. This movie is going to suck

I have looked and looked and I cannot fathom why they haven't posted a downloadable version on the moview website that is, by the way, the most annoying site I have visited; totally useless as an informative tool. I hope that the movie is not as bad and yes, some remakes are terrible while others actually improve upon the original (in more than mere effects).

I agree with you on this one Shawn man, it IS going to ruin the japanese version. EVEN THE RINGTONE FOR THIS ONE SUCKS!!! The original was way better and the ringtone had more of an errie feel than this one. But anyways, enough of me ranting about it. I know it's going to suck, but i'll give it the benefit of the doubt and go and see it anyways. -shakes his head and sighs-

Unfortunately, the ring tone used isn't anything like the original, and it doesn't have the feel of a [creepy] child's song, as the preceeding movie intended. Judging a book on its cover, it looks less far less meaningful than the original. Seems like it loses its supernatural feel, and the actors don't appear struck or truly shocked by the calls they receive. Despite that, I would still actually give it a shot to see in the theaters to see its effects, and for those who cannot get ahold of the original.
