The Movie: One Missed Call (2008)
The Character: Jack Andrews (Ed burns)
Frankly, the whole film was a stupid idea, one of the more watered down missed opportunities in the recent run of Japanese horror remakes.
But Burns' Detective Andrews gets special criticism because he's supposed to be a professional, carries a gun and therefore should know better than to get wrapped up in a weird situation where mobile voicemail messages are predicting peoples' untimely deaths.
Okay, so he thinks his sister's death was related to the phenomenon, but it's really no reason to listen to kooky college student Beth.
If Only They'd: Not gone with Beth to the spooky deserted hospital and - this is the really big one - stuck his eye up against the peephole of a door they're hiding behind while being tracked by the ghostly villain.
How Do They Die? A blade right through the eyeball into his brain. Or at least, we think that's what does it. Yet looking through the thing in the first place makes us wonder if there was even a brain to kill.
