Shutter (2008)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Being a remake of a Thai horror film instead of Japanese doesn't prevent Shutter from being another lame Asian horror remake.

Critic Reviews for Shutter

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (13)

Will the next terror-minded remake involve a possessed telegraph machine or a grudge-minded ox and cart? Neither option could be any lamer than the shock-free Shutter.

Shutter, which attempts to do for cameras what The Ring did for videocassettes, what Pulse did for computers, and what The Grudge did for grudges.

Avoid unless you've never seen a horror movie in your life or you just have very low standards.

...an absolutely redundant piece of work...

Reel Film Reviews

Out of the list of horrible remakes I've experienced in 2008, "Shutter" really isn't the worst one I've seen yet, but it sure does suck enough to rank up there...

... the film feels like a made-for-TV movie.

Audience Reviews for Shutter

The latest in a long list of Japanese horror films remaded for American audiences. Not bad not great just there. Will get around to check out the original at some point.

Scary but a pretty bad storyline!

Inferior remake of the super-creepy Thai original from 2004. I say inferior but to be fair it was not too bad. Having seen the original version I knew the story and twists but I tried to watch as if I didn't know. It definitely lacks scares and that creepy atmosphere the Thai version had, but the last 35 minutes or so it provides some decent chills of its own.
