Shutter (2004) Review
Written by: StormShadow
I picked up Shutter in our local video rental shop because I've always been fascinated by "ghost photos" and thought it might be an interesting film to watch. I presumed it would just be similar to films in the mold of Ringu and Ju-On where the so-called "ghosts" were more laughable than scary. I'm glad I was wrong.
For quite a long time I've been looking for a film that would really scare me. I've been a fanatic of the horror genre since I was a kid and I've seen only a handful of films that managed to genuinely put the scare into me. I'm happy to say Shutter did just that.
This film had a good premise, a few splashes of humor here and there, a good number of scenes that would make you jump and give you goosebumps and a great twist of an ending to boot.
While this may be considered "mainstream" horror by some people, Shutter definitely ranks up there among the best horror films that have come out in quite some time.
