It's not often that a good horror flick comes outof Thailand, but when they occasionally do theytend to be really good. Shutter is an excellentexample of just how great a Thai flick can be. Themovie sticks to the same old Asian ghost flickconcept where a longhaired girl pops up every nowand then for a good scare, BUT this one has gotsomething that most of the other Ju-On and Ringrip-offs doesn't have; it's got a good and wellpolished script. It doesn't just have a girlpopping up every now and then, it also blends thestory together with real paranormal activity.It shows us real pictures of ghosts and doesn'thave the longhaired girl show in every photo butsometimes there just seems to be like a whitereflection on the photo, just like in real ghostphotographs.
The acting is great and since there are so fewcharacters it's very easy to root for them. I evenfound myself rooting for the ghost. That's anotheringenious thing about this movie. The ghost isn'tjust a mean bitch, you can really understand whyshe's doing the things that she's doing and whyshe so desperately needs revenge.
Shutter is without a doubt the scariest Thai horrorflick since The Eye. It provides plenty of scareswhile still being interesting throughout the movieand not feeling like a total rip-off.
Shutter is scary, interesting and verycreepy and takes off very early in the movieso that we get to be scared through the entirething.
