Ok, I hesitated buying this movie because of the reviews here and from what I had heard. I own the original Thai release of this movie and love it. I decided to buy this movie and I'm not sorry that I did. It is not that bad. The photography was good, the effects were good, the actors were good...the story is not original, it is borrowed...but then again so are most the stories out there. I liked the twist on the ending that this one had. Give this movie a chance and don't listen to horror movie snobs who probably only give a 5-star if peoples limbs are hanging on by a thread and there are buckets of blood and guts. If you want a good movie about a ghost haunting someone that did them wrong, then you won't be sorry with this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Check It Out! July 18, 2008
I wanted to buy this movie, so I figured I would check out some reviews here on Amazon.

After reading said reviews, I was somewhat discouraged and thought renting might be a better idea. Since I knew I would at least enjoy the location shots in Japan, renting wouldn't be a waste.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed this movie. It may well have some minor plot flaws, but what movie doesn't? All in all, I found it intriguing and pretty well-paced. To me it was as much a mystery as a horror flick. Having both those elements is what maintained my interest.

I've never seen the original Thai movie; however, now I intend to buy both versions. Even my husband and daughter liked it!

Maybe this movie isn't one everyone enjoyed, but sometimes it's a good idea to check it out for yourself.

Shutter (Masayuki Ochiai, 2008)

You know, it's funny reading IMDB commentary on remakes of Asian horror films; it often seems like half the commenters are unaware the movie is a remake, and the other half are attacking the movie for things that are identical to the original film and talking about how bad they're messed up in the remake. It makes you wonder if anyone has seen either version. Well, I have. Both of them, in fact. And for an American remake, Shutter is actually not awful. Like most American remakes of Asian horror films, however, it is entirely unnecessary.

Ochiai, whose last film was the highly underrated Infection, comes eastward to direct this remake of the 2004 Thai film of the same name. In this version, which is relatively faithful to the original, a photographer named Ben Shaw (Fringe's Joshua Jackson) and his new wife (Transformers' Rachael Taylor) go back to Ben's old stomping grounds in Tokyo for Ben to take a photography assignment. On the way to the cabin where they're going to spend their honeymoon, Jane sees a woman in the middle of the road and hits her. When the police come, however, they can find no trace of her. Soon she starts turning up in every photograph the two of them take, and Jane realizes she has to figure out who the woman is and why she's stalking them before things turn fatal.

Ochiai is a very competent director, as Infection showed, and unlike many imported directors, being in Hollywood seems to have done nothing to suppress his abilities; Shutter is a well-executed movie in almost every regard.

2.0 out of 5 stars On the dull side, and really not scary July 20, 2008
By Viva
Some spoilers ahead.....

Okay, the plot is simple enough. A newlywed couple go from the U.S. to Japan for the guy's photography assignment, apparently run over a woman who then cannot be found, start working, get haunted, freak out a lot, and then the wife finally discovers, after they are back home, that the girl haunting her hubby and killing off his friends was actually the victim of sexual attacks and blackmail by said men. The wife wisely leaves him, and the man pretty much lobotomizes himself, still unable to get rid of the vengeful ghost.
Yeah, so? How is this any different from the other pale remakes of much scarier and more subtle Japanese originals? I don't remember being scared at all by this one. Not once. I did, however, find my mind wandering several times.

First off, the Shutter remake differed for me from other remakes of Asian horror in that, usually, by the time there is a remake I've seen the original. I haven't seen the 2004 Shutter (for no reason beyond the fact that there's a lot of Asian horror DVDs out that aren't stocked where I live, and having to see them by buying from Amazon or someplace means it takes quite a while to catch up) so I'll just focus on this incarnation.

I really didn't have high hopes for this, but it turned out better than I thought. Its biggest weakness was that it took quite a while to get going, quite a while to start distinguishing itself from movies like the "Grudge" series, but once it did, it became highly effective.

It focuses on a newly married American couple (played by Joshua Jackson and Rachel Taylor) who move to Japan, where the husband has landed a job with a high-profile photography agency. It's actually a return for him, having worked there previously, and the first time for Taylor. Shortly after arriving they're in a car accident in which Jane (Taylor) thinks they've struck a woman, who Ben (Jackson) has no recollection of seeing; police and paramedics who arrive on the scene can find no trace that this woman ever existed either. Jane reluctantly accepts the theory that maybe she imagined the woman, but shortly thereafter, images begin to turn up in photographs Ben takes, and Jane becomes convinced the woman is haunting them. This leads into the whole world of spirit photography, a phenomena by where ghosts and glimpses of other worlds are said to be occasionally (and often inadvertently) captured on film.

The movie manages to tap into a different kind of scariness, in that it's one of the few examples of a successful 'melancholy' horror film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good!
Wow! this one is a 'shocker'. I didn't see what was really happening until the very last. I love those kinds of movies. The 'surprise at the end' kind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very satisfying film.
As has been pointed out, this is a combo mystery-horror flick. I found it enjoyable, especially when compared to the gross slasher pics. Read more

Shutter is a film that was better than I expected, though that isn't saying much. A newly married photographer travels to Tokyo with his bride for a new job. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Anticlimactic at best
The plot of "Shutter" has such a cool premise: a newlywed couple suddenly starts to find a mysterious woman showing up in all of the photographs that they are snapping. Read more

I like ghost movies if there made right. For me, it was a little far beyond the scope of classic horror films, too many parts were predictable and obvious with the connection... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Thin story
Good concept but poorly executed due to thin story line and flat stereotypical characters. More like a made for tv movie than one that was released in theatres. Read more
