The jury is out on whether we need another J-horror scare story, but it's not an open-and-shut case. And with the re-make in the works, the file remains open.
Innovative, deeper than the norm and visually striking.
a rather boring asian horror
...ultimately comes off as yet another hopelessly derivative and downright interminable Asian creeper...
The latest in the line of hairy hauntings, Shutter, for the most part conforms to expectations, although it has a pay off which lifts it above the pack.
Shunning random carnage, this horror carries you with it to the final twist.
Competently handled, decently acted and contains a couple of twists in the final reel that may give you a jolt.
Familiar though it may be, the film is well made and contains more than its fair share of supremely creepy moments, plus there's a clever twist near the end that you really won't see coming.
If some of the shocks come off feeling as dated as last summer's Polaroids, it's a small price to play for a picture that manages to be scary and unsettling without resorting to cheap thrills and gore.
This reasonable Thai horror flick can't decide when and how its disgruntled wraith - female, as usual - is allowed to manifest herself.
There's some scare-voltage here, and some cliches.
The first-time directors, Parkpoom Wongpoom and Banjong Pisanthanakun, might not have names that roll off the tongue, but they have a way of getting noticed.
Had quite big expectations of this film and although it was and enjoyable film, it doesn?t bring anything new to Asian Horror or the Horror genre in general.
I also have the remake and it?ll be interesting to compare the two, once I have watched.
A swing and a miss! Completely derivative horse shit. Cool ending, though, and surprisingly solid performances. Too bad it isn't scary, relying heavily on audio cues (some of which are shockingly misused) and falling back on the old, now unscary Asian girl ghost crutch. Shutter is poorly lit and cheap-looking, further undermining the already heavy attempts at creating atmosphere. After seeing something like REC, the amateurish direction behind something like this really shows. Also, Tun is a prick.
Completely avoidable. For all the talk of how it was going to put Thai horror on the map, it sure didn't make much of a splash...and for good reason.
Best watched at night with the lights down to get the full effect. There are images here that can SCARE even the most hardened of viewers. Too bad the story is totally ludicrous and unoriginal, otherwise this would have been a great horror movie.
Wonderfully shot horror film whose atmosphere far exceeds the film itself. Again it's an Asian horror film that focusses around an investigation, a dead girl and many twists. The first problem comes from the initial hit and run incident. Neither person seems that bothered after having possibly killed someone. The film has a wonderfully creepy presenc to it, and the ghost in question is particularly scary, though her ochestra she seems to bring with her is not needed. It's not something I was invested in, in terms of characters but it certainly had me jumping.
