I had only encountered Masayuki Ochiai's work with his segment in DARK TALES OF JAPAN but it was enough to have me excited about this Americanized remaked of the 2004 Thailand original. My excitement ended ten minutes into the film. I don't care how smoking hot Rachael Taylor is and I don't care how fond I've become of Joshua Jackson since becoming addicted to FRINGE, no......SHUTTER does not work. It is far too simple as a mystery, it's "boo-factor" is close to nil and truth be told I've been more scared by items I've found in my refrigerator than anything I found here. Worth a peek for the jaw-dropper scene if somebody happens to have a copy kicking about, otherwise, avoid at all costs.
