Shutter (2004) Review:
Thai horror movie Shutter was a big hit in its native country and also became quite popular in horror circle worldwide, to the point where an American remake was (poorly) made in 2008.
But that’s not big surprise, since the movie is excellent. Whereas the average Asian horror movies tend to be a little slow-paced, this one is interesting right from the start and doesn’t let go until the very end. Although the scenario is rather typical of Asian ghost movie, it is well told and captivating all along, plus the ending is absolutely crazy.
But what everyone remember about Shutter is simply how scary it is. It features an impressive amount of excellent ghost scenes, all of them worthy of the best Asian horror such as The Ring or The Grudge. Some scenes such as the one in the bedroom are memorable. As for the ending, it might just be the best Asian horror movie ending along with A Tales of Two Sisters.
A definitive must-see for any horror fan, and one easily in my top 5 Asian horror movies.
