Movie Summary

Director:
Masayuki Ochiai
Released:
2008
Rating:
Not Available
Shutter (Unrated) is the 2008 big budget remake of the original Japanese horror favorite, brought to American audiences by director Masayuki Ochiai (Kansen). While on their honeymoon in Japan, a professional American photographer (Joshua Jackson, Scream 2, Dawson's Creek, Cruel Intentions, The Skull) and his new bride (Rachel Taylor, Man-Thing, Transformers, Bottle Shock) run over a young woman who, for some inexplicable reason, just happens to be standing in the middle of a deserted country road in the dead of night. Soon, the victim - the obligatory pasty-faced, stringy-haired brunette in a nightie - is haunting the couple's pictures in the form of a 'spirit photo,' first hanging around the edges of the images, then - when the novelty of that wears off - appearing to the couple in corporeal form, and generally making a first-class nuisance of herself.
