One Missed Call (2003)

Takashi Miike directs Ko Shibasaki, Shinichi Tsutsumi and Kazue Fukiishi in this Japanese horror movie where an answerphone message from the future fortells your exact time of death.

Stale J horror with one stand-out sequence. The live TV event based around the countdown to one girl’s cursed end is pretty sweet and sustained. Everything else seems like Ringu scraps.
