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.

The movie overall was pretty decent, and there's plenty of jump-out-of-your-seat moments and a few twists, but I have to say that the ending was disappointing. It fit with the movie, I suppose, but it didn't leave me itching for a sequel. It's probably a good idea to go if you're into photography and know how a blackroom works - it'll get you thinking next time you develop a picture. I suggest going and seeing it yourself, but don't get your hopes too high.


Oh man, this movie had such potental.... a kick A story line about ghosts appearing in a still picture... cool right? Sounds like a awesome story that COULD go far. But fell flat half way though! Not enough explanation about some parts of the story & too mauch about some. The ending left me giggling & not from fright!


I actually liked this movie. Yes it's someone predictable, but so are 99% of the movies out there. The premis was interesting, but could have been better. Shutter has a very similar theme to The Grudge (but not as good). In order of movies, I would say The Ring > The Grudge > Shutter. Good points: The leads were decent (Joshua Jackson & Rachel Taylor) and the ending was satisfying. The main ghost (played by Megumi Tanaka) was a good choice, but I wanted more surreal effects to go with her look. Week points: Relatively poor plot development. Lack of creepy "Ring-like" jerky movement; the ghost made too many natural "human" kinds of movements. All in all, I would give this movie a C+ and say it's worth the price of a matinee ticket, just don't set your expectations way up there.


After reading most of the posts here I went into the movie thinking it was going to be terrible. I thought it was good though. I think the people who didn't like it are looking for blood and gore, which this movie didn't have a lot of. It wasn't real scarey but I thought it was well done. Both my wife and I thought it was better than The Grudge. I only bring that up because it has been already compaired to The Grudge on these boards.


This movie is very similar to the Grudge movies, but it's not quite as intense. I enjoyed it, but my friend thought it was better saved as a rental. If there's nothing else great showing in the theator, then you won't be wasting your time on this one.
