'One Missed Call' -- pre-release buzz
Warner has announced its latest (and perhaps its last) dual-format release, 'One Missed Call'
The horror remake includes 1080p/VC-1 video and English, French and Spanish Dolby 5.1 tracks only.
There are no extras at all -- zippo.
Street date for the Blu is April 22, followed by the HD DVD/DVD combo three weeks later on May 13.
Retail is $35.98 a pop.

there is absolutely NO FUCKING way they should ever consider releasing this total dung heap on bd. Incredible.
I have NEVER seen any movie ever get so low a rating on IMDB. I mean that site is overly generous usually. this title got a 2.5
what a total waste of a bd run. pathetic.
Could this be bd's nadir so far?

I for one am VERY thankful it made it to blu-ray, especially with so many people that hate it, but I love Shannyn Sossamon and it will be great to see her in HD.

Warner should have used the money they're wasting on releasing this garbage and put it towards giving Michael Clayton a better transfer. Seriously boys, Blade Runner looks way better than that one does and it's 25 years old! Twister better look and sound freakin' amazing.

Man, I loved the Japanese version (a Takashi Miike film too), and haven't seen the remake. I'd give it a go, though. The Kairo/Pulse remake got bad writeups everywhere, but I actually thought it was very good - and Kairo is actually my all time fav J-Horror film. I love Kairo.
But FFS, that cover gives me the screeming heebie jeebies. It is truly disturbing. It will give me nightmares.

US studios I dont think grasp what makes the originals of J-Horror movies so good, its the subilty and phychological aspect of them that whereas US studions confuse this with tension and the need to dumb stuff down.
I enjoyed the original but I think I may give this one a miss completely rather than see another movie ruined for me.
