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.

With Shutter, that nerve-tingling soundtrack gets heavy use almost from the beginning of the movie. It becomes tiresome.

Shutter is seriously short on shudders.

At some point in Shutter you will probably lose count, along with your patience, but the film will keep right on going.

Though a presentation of 20th Century Fox, Shutter has the look and feel of a proper J-horror film.

Consider this movie to be almost as good as The Eye but with less of a coherent story.

The very Thai-specific charms that made the original such an unforeseen, unpredictable delight when I first saw it are almost entirely absent here.

It's worth wartching if you favor the style, but can also satiate horror fans that just want to be scared and experience something (slightly) new.

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...

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.

Bad script, so-so scares mar Asian horror remake.
July 24, 2008
If ever there was a poster child for the end of Western J-Horror (and other Asian country) adaptations, this movie is it. Not only does it offer every cliche in the genre's status, it proves how pathetic they are in our present cinematic context.

Similar to a theme park ride that scares kids, this Asian horror film frightens only newcomers to the genre from which it practically bootlegs.
July 8, 2008
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.
