Another J-Horror remake, made in a time when everyone was remaking them, thanks to the success of The Ring, and The Grudge, and don't forget, we had the influx of Gornography, and the slew of eighties horror remakes at this time, so to be fair, horror really suffered from 2006 to 2009.
But the difference with this movie is that its the remake of a remake to an American movie, Blink, which is a really good standalone film.
There is nothing new here, we get all the jump scares, people seeing things in a reflection, and dark shadowy figures taking people away.
Alba is as good as she always is, but when it comes to it all, its not scary, and offers nothing new.
If you are used to these silly remakes and find movies like Shutter, Apartment 1303, The Grudge, The Ring, One Missed Call et al, affable, its a watchable mess.
And Alba is easy on 'The Eye'
