Film: One Missed Call

"That's not my ringtone..."

One Missed Call is a 2008 American remake of J-horror movie Chakushin Ari. The main plot is that a spirit inside cell phones will call itself and play for the owner what they'll sound like when they die shortly after. This version stars Shannyn Sossamon and Edward Burns.

Tropes used by the movie:

  • Abusive Parents: Social Services suspected this to be the case with Marie Layton. Actually subverted - it was an abusive sister. Marie Layton discovered the abuse just before she and Ellie died
  • Black Chick Dies First: Poor Meagan Good.
