I haven't watched much Asian horror but I think I know a good one when I see one. This film should not to be overlooked! While it borrows a bit from the Ringu cycle, the film makers have added enough originality to make the film stand on its own. It is all done with a great deal of talent and packs quite a horrific blow! I had the pleasure of viewing this film the other night and was surprised by all of the clever editing tricks employed by the filmmakers. Some of this editing is so sneaky it happens before your eyes can catch it!

After a night out drinking with his fellow graduate friends, photography student Tun (Ananda Everingham) and his girlfriend Jane (Nattaweeranuch Thongmee) accidentally run down a girl who's standing in the middle of the road. After panicking and leaving without stopping to help, Jane begins to have nightmares and Tun finds ghost-like images in the backgrounds of his photos. When his friends start apparently committing suicide, Tun and Jane's investigations lead to more possible incidents of guilt concerning another student, Natre (Achita Sikamana). They may only be in their mid-twenties and this their debut film, but "Shutter's" Thai co-directors Parkpoom Wongpoom and Banjong Pisanthanakun have a fantastic feel for what makes an atmospheric, tension filled ghost story.

One of the remarkable things about this movie is the cast especially Everingham. Besides being easy on the eyes he has shown several different sides to his character as the story moves in unexpected directions. As beautiful as Jane is, she has the most straightforward and possibly the only completely sympathetic character but she does really well to make Jane far more interesting than the usual screaming girlfriend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Thai version of modern Jap horror 1 April 2010
By Mr. P. Johnson VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is pretty much what it says on the box. Abused girl returns to haunt her abusers and appears in the photos taken by a young photographer. Flashbacks and effects create the story, which is perfectly adequate for the price. If you like 'Ringu' or similar recent Japanese horror films, you won't be too disappointed.It won't win any awards but will while away a night in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed it! 29 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
Some of this genre I feel can be a bit patchy and so when I sat down to watch this (one Sunday afternoon), I wasn't expecting much. Turned out to be great entertainment with some superb tension building. Okay so the storyline isn't spectacularly different, but great direction, well-judged (not OTT) effects and pretty convincing acting served it very well. Thoroughly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary! 16 May 2008
Format:DVD
It's a very long time since I watched a film that genuinely scared me. This one really did. It uses excellent techniques to draw your attention and hold it, and the scares do not let up right up until the end of the film. A must for fans of the Asian Horror genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for Asian Chiller Fans 14 Jan 2013
Format:DVD
If you liked titles such as the creepy 'Dark Water', 'The Grudge', 'Phone' or even some of the haunting work of Kim Ji Woon, such as 'A Tale of Two Sisters', you'll simply adore this!

'Shutter' perhaps isn't the best known of the crop but for me is up there with the best. If it's an atmospheric, unsettling ghost story you're after, look no further.

The 'basics' are all there early on - the acting is fine, the characters/plot well developed and the scares frequent enough to grab the attention and not let it go.

As with so many Asian horror films (this one is Thai which is a different take on things), 'Shutter' is shot superbly and the chilly, bleak tones used throughout all adds to the atmosphere, as does the musical score.

You don't need me to go over the storyline but what did please me was the ending. I find Asian filmakers approach film as an art form still (unlike Hollywood) and as such demand a beginning, middle and an end....and boy does 'Shutter' end well! With a really haunting final 5-10 minutes and a very unique twist/take on the topic of haunting I was left feeling a little freaked out...but very satisfied indeed!

'Shutter' is horror in the true form - tension, atmosphere, a sense of unease and some excellently timed and executed frights (if like me, you find 'ghost photos' particularly creepy, have a cushion at the ready!).

'Shutter' is yet another example of the east ruling the modern horror genre - like many before and since this is an absolute gem that I can't rate highly enough.
