    Just from the ads, this is the dumbest movie I've ever seen.

    That's not my ringtone! :eek:

    Apparently if a certain call from some evil undead supernatural being with its own telephone service goes unanswered then when you check your voicemail you hear yourself dying and then you die.

    Now first off, does Hell really have telephone service? Does Verizon service Dis? Second, is this movie just a scheme to get people to answer their phones more frequently? Third, if your cell is going to kill you if a call goes directly to voicemail, why not just cancel your service? Are the early termination penalties really worth risking your life? Fourth, why not just answer the phone every time it rings? Tell your friends and family not to call that number any longer and then you know that the only call you receive will come from the evil supernatural entity. Fifth, why is a supernatural entity calling you to begin with? What happened to omens, possessions, and hauntings? Is Hell outsourcing to Indian telemarketers?

    All in all, this is likely the worst film of 2008 unless there's a sequel, Another Missed Call: The Roaming Fees.

    I want to see this movie so badly! It comes out a day or two before my 20th birthday, don't wreck it for me.

    Phew! I'm glad that I now have a solid excuse to never listen to my messages.

    (Anyone who knows me texts me!)

    Maybe the movie was created by social darwinists who are going to gas all the movie theatres that actually draw an audience for this film? :tongue:
