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. Written by Brian Corder

Trivia

In photography, a shutter is a device that allows light to pass for a determined period of time, exposing photographic film or a light-sensitive electronic sensor to light in order to capture a permanent image of a scene. A shutter can also be used to allow pulses of light to pass outwards, as seen in a movie projector or a signal lamp. See more »

Seriously...When are this remakes going to stop?
17 April 2008 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

Shutter (2004) was not a great horror film but it was a competent one.It was entertaining and it had some creepy moments.But,now,we have another unnecessary Hollywood remake.Shutter (2008) is a crap.Simple as that.The ''scary'' moments produced accidental laughs on me.But,in spite of laughing a little bit,this movie enormously bored me.The special effects are pathetic.The actors show zero conviction on their roles.Director Masayuki Ochiai made a mercenary work.The only positive thing I can find in this crap is that the ending from the original film was not changed.Shutter is an unnecessary remake.In summary,this is another crappy remake.Hollywood MUST stop with this remakes.
