STEALING BEAUTY, Sunday at 10P
While the Western remake may not have lit any fires, that’s all the more reason to check out Takashi Miike’s original Japanese version of ONE MISSED CALL. Who knew a film about voicemail could be so scary? Well, when that voicemail is from your future self at your time of death, life becomes something of a minefield. Asian horror doesn’t get much better. This week on WTF: WATCH THIS FILM.
