DVD Review: One Missed Call

From Takashi Miike, another masterfully chilling film. This guy knows his way around a camera! The plot is about a group of young people, who one by one start to recieve a call on their cell phone. The phone rings in a tone that's not their's, and it's a spooky tone let me tell you, and when they don't answer it, they find out there's a message left. The message is from themselves, days in the future, at the time of their death. The tone of this movie is absolutely great! You don't know what's going to happen next and everything is slowly revealed. The acting is top notch and the atmosphere extremely creepy. This just may be my favorite Miike film yet. Of course, there's always the troublesome ending with Miike, but I think I figured out his meaning on this one. ****1/2 out of *****. Why are those long haired Japanese women so scary!?
