Welcome to the 31 Days Of Halloween Movies! Every day throughout October Dave Christy (with occasional comment from Melanie) will present a horror movie every day complete with a trailer!
Day 25 - One Missed Call (2003) AKA Chakushin Ari
Dave Says -
I will stress this point- ORIGINAL JAPANESE VERSION. In the wake of The Ring’s success, another Japanese original that was remade, Hollywood decided that remaking a lot of J-horror was the new trend and kept failing. This was no exception. In 2008, they made a US version. It was ok but I believe this version is far more superior. The original was a trilogy and the US version tried incorporating parts of the sequels in the first movie. Anyway, a little about this one. You get a missed a call and listen to the message. It’s from you saying the final words you speak before you die.

Wow Dave you really put me to work trying to find this one. Hopefully I have the right details! I have found that a lot of the remakes of Japanese based original horror end up falling short. Usually the original is the way to go. This looks like one I would enjoy - Greg is not so keen on "reading" movies though!
