Weekly Previews That Make Choosing a Film Fun
by Kam Williams
For movies opening January 4, 2008


One Missed Call (PG-13 for mature themes, frightening images, terror, intense violence and some sexual material) Shannyn Sossamon stars in this remake of Chakushin Ari, a high attrition-rate horror flick from Japan about a traumatized young woman who’s afraid to answer her cell phone after several of her ill-fated friends receive messages accurately predicting exactly when and how they are about to die. With Edward Burns as the detective determined to crack the case.


A Bloody Aria (Unrated) Appearances can be deceiving in this gruesome examination of bullying about a perverted music professor (Byeong-jun Lee) who kickstarts an escalating roundelay of revenge after making unwanted advances on his pretty protégé (Ye-ryeon Cha) while driving her to an audition. (In Korean with subtitles)

The Killing of John Lennon (Unrated) Chilling bio-pic presumes to get inside the mind of Mark David Chapman (Jonas Ball), the deranged maniac who claimed to be inspired by the Devil and by the book The Catcher in the Rye to murder The Beatles’ John Lennon before then being instructed by God to plead guilty to the senseless killing.
