REVIEW-SHUTTER (LOST IN TRANS-ASIAN)

Hollywood is running out of garbage to ripoff.  I guess if you haven’t seen the Ring, the Grudge, the Eye, Pulse, One Missed Call, Marebito, and about 11 dozen other JHorror originals and remakes then you might get into Shutter; furthermore, if you liked Lost in Translation you may like Shutter even more. <br> Its about a super cool young couple, he’s a fashion photographer, she’s really hot. Together, they fight ghosts. Seriously. They are fish out of water in Tokyo and then it really isnt very much like LIT. Maybe LIT would have been better if Murray had been a ghost, that remained in the hotel lounge after his death, and whenever people sang a certain Kareoke song, they died. Scarlet figures out the song, and uses her paranormal detective deduction skills to find the body of Murrays character under the stage, still holding the microphone. He just wanted to sing Star Wars. <br>  Forget it, that sucks, Murray would look stupid doing the reverse photography backwards walking played forewards thing, and would look even more pathetic with long straight strands of wet black hair covering his face. <br> Ok its The Ring with a camera instead of a videotape and its nowhere near as good as The Ring, its The Grudge without the “ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR” Combine that with two actors that probably auditioned for parts in Scream that they didn’t get, and you end up with a movie that should have gone direct to DVD.

  1. Finally a review that doesn’t hold back. Definitely refreshing point of view. I will save my money for another time or buy a fabulous horror book.

  2. I really enjoyed your perspective on this mess of a movie. I concur… check out my review at http://www.heiditown.com. My friends made me go to this movie… okay, I finally said “yes” but soon regretted it. My friend Amy actually fell asleep during this movie!! The Ring gave me nightmares for a week – Shutter kept me awake thinking “who in the hell decided this was a good story????”
