If listening closely in the moment of the theatrical trailer where Leann Cole is walking down the street alone, the original musical score from the Japanese original One Missed Call (2003) can be briefly heard for a few seconds. See more »
(at around 1h 5 mins) When Beth is in the crawl space under the hospital, she holds her flashlight sideways, casting light on the wall on her left. When they cut to show what she sees as she is crawling, the beam of light is cast in front of her. The scene cuts back and forth between the 2 views, making the mistake very visible. See more »
I am a fan or horror movies. I get scared by almost anything, and I will admit that once I read the plot summary for 'One Missed Call' I was intrigued. My friend and I both thought it had potential. Than I saw the trailer, and was almost as disappointed as I was I saw 'The Land Before Time 16'. I went to see this movie expecting it to be comically ridiculous, and I wasn't disappointed. If you want a good laugh, go see it. If you are frightened by a missed call on your cell phone than you may want to sleep with the lights on, otherwise you should be fine. The worst part about this movie is that it isn't quite corny enough to be considered entertaining. It simply leaves you constantly turning to the person next to you to say "What was that?" because of how childish the plot becomes.
