Despite that Yanne's opinion on it was "lousy story and built-up on action scenes", I really enjoyed watching it. Of course, after all these weeks of watching "low-quality" horror movies, it was delightful to watch something not depressing.

While I was hoping that third movie is at least better than second then I was totally wrong. Despite having famous cast playing the main characters, movie itself was more than disappointing.

This is the least known movie from "One missed call" series, because they have really unknown cast also. I had know idea what to expect from it and it turned out to be even worse than my no-expectations, but it sure was funnier  than the first movie.

Sunday night is horror night! Just kidding! I bet most of you know already that I am really bad with horror movies - I am easily scared and I just hate watching scary things. Luckily I can say that the first movie of "One missed call" did not make me feel any kind of emotion at all. Though it would still be scary to receive a call from my own number. I rather have my ex calling me after 2,5 years to say that he misses me than have a call from myself (story of today).
