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.
