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.

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.

Similar to a theme park ride that scares kids, this Asian horror film frightens only newcomers to the genre from which it practically bootlegs.

Shutter the latest photographic enlargement of an Asian horror picture, is clearer and sharper than many of its predecessors, but even the most expert re-touching cannot obscure the fact that we have seen it all before.

Shutter features another pale, scraggly haired young woman a la The Ring haunting our protagonists. Yawn.

Workmanlike at best; derivative, predictable and slightly dull at worst.

It's an effective scary story that depicts women with spirit - on both sides of the divide.

It's all rather predictable, and often irritatingly derivative

SHUTTER should have been the scariest horror film since THE RING, but instead it was infuriatingly bad. This joins ONE MISSED CALL in the ranks of worst horror remakes of all-time and I highly recommend skipping this one for the original...

Are more of these Asian remakes in the offering? I "Shutter" to think.

What happens is the same as every other J-horror remake only less so, at least in part because it stars Rachael Taylor and Joshua Jackson instead of actual famous people.
