Why Is One Missed Call Rated PG-13?
One Missed Call is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and terror, frightening images, some sexual material and thematic elements.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in One Missed Call...
This thriller turns a cell phone ring tone into a scary experience when people receive a missed call notification dated within the next couple of days, and then they die from gruesome deaths at the exact time of the message. While not particularly gory and with very little blood displayed, the deaths are still bothersome. Characters are impaled with construction rebar, run over by a train (a dismembered hand is seen holding a cell phone), and drowned in a pond. An unseen spirit kills one character during an exorcism in a church during which statues of Jesus Christ and Mary are shown with scary faces. Discussions of child abuse and a depiction of a woman verbally abusing a child are included. An image of a person hanging is seen—suicide is implied. Language consists of both moderate and mild profanities along with terms of Christian deity used as expletives. Sexual content consists of a brief mention of the term “phone sex” and a couple is briefly shown in their underwear after they are interrupted in a bedroom. A secondary character is smoking a cigarette and others are drinking socially.
