No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA: Chakushin Ari
Directed by: Takashi Miike
Starring: Ko Shibasaki (Yumi), Shinichi Tsutsumi (Yamashita), Kazue Fukiishi (Natsumi), Mariko Tsutsui (Marie)
Country: Japan, Effed Up Asian Cinema
Language: Japanese (English Subtitles)
Runtime: 01:52:09
Genres: Horror, Domestic Abuse

Plot – Spoilers:
Soon after Nokia and the use of cellphones exploded, ghosts probably realized cellular was a more efficient way to spread their mayhem rather than wait around in dark nooks and creepy corners.

And that’s what One Missed Call is mostly about. The victim receives a voice/video message from themselves a couple of days before they die in strange ways.

This is your standard J-horror flick. Takashi Miike’s trademark craziness isn’t really on show, though you can see his odd touch here and there, particularly in the death scenes.

I liked it. I think it was good, tho i didn’t really understood the final part. So she didn’t killed him because he ate that thing? Anyway, pretty good.
