Phone (2002) aka Pon

3 / 5

Perhaps if I hadn't seen so many other similar films this one would have been more impactful but as is, it's pretty average and recycled feeling. So in this case we have a Journalist who changes her cell phone number and starts to recieve some strange calls. Well her niece answers the phone and then she starts seeing some strange things as well. Anyhow I suppose I shouldn't ruin the actual story here but it is rather similar to "The Ring", not nearly as good but kinda the same. This film is seriously missing the element of fright, death and well the long haired ghost thing has run it's course am I wrong? Anyhow at least it makes sense and it's easy enough to get through, I just felt like it could have tried way harder.
