Critic Reviews for Shutter
Competently handled, decently acted and contains a couple of twists in the final reel that may give you a jolt.
This reasonable Thai horror flick can't decide when and how its disgruntled wraith - female, as usual - is allowed to manifest herself.
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.
Audience Reviews for Shutter
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.
