I usual don’t write about movies, but this one captured my attention. First the name ‘Shutter‘ told me that something has to do with photography. Well the idea of the movie is a creepy one but it is about photography.
A newlywed couple Ben and Jane move to Japan for a promising job opportunity – a fashion shoot in Tokyo. During their trip on a dark forest road they experience a tragic car accident, leading to the death of a young local girl. Upon regaining consciousness, they find no trace of her body. A bit distraught the couple arrives in Tokyo to begin their new life. Meanwhile Ben begins noticing strange white blurs in many of his fashion shoot photographs. Jane believes that the blurs are actually spirit photography of the dead girl who they hit on the road, and that she may be seeking vengeance.
I would have believe in these kind of things 15 years ago when I was into creepy and weird things. Now I think they pus the limit too far with another movie after Grunge and The ring.
I just hope people won’t rush to buy digital cameras just to try catch the glimpse of a spirit that lives in their home. Please tell me you won’t do that!!
Here you can see the trailer and an extended version of the trailer.
