RUE MORGUE Magazine Presents One Missed Call
One Missed Call brings together two of the hottest things happening in Asian cinema: renegade director Takashi (Ichi The Killer, Audition) Miike and the post-millennial horror wave of The Eye, The Ring and The Grudge. What results is one of Miike’s most satisfying commercial – but still bizarre – filmmaking efforts.
College student Yumi finds her friends dying around her in increasingly mysterious ways. The connection: each received a phone call from themselves three days in the future, at the exact moment of their deaths.
Miike strains this premise through his weird brain to come up with a hybrid horror movie that grafts philosophy, touching sentiment, pitch black humour and social critique onto what initially seems to be a mere genre exercise. Join us for this one-off screening of this yet-to-be released gem that introduces eerie ghosts and subtle chills into Miike’s stylishly original world of shocking cruelty.
