Photographer Ben Shaw has just gotten married to Jane when they head off to Japan where Ben’s got a job to do. On the way to a holiday cabin, they end up in an accident at night where Jane drives over a young woman. However, when the police arrive at the scene the woman is nowhere to be found and Ben thinks that Jane either must have dreamt it or the woman wasn’t as hurt as Jane thinks.
Once they arrive in Tokyo for the fashion shoot, however, Jane starts seeing strange visions of the woman and when Ben’s pictures end up all having blurred flashes, it becomes clear that there’s a ghost attached to them. A ghost that doesn’t have something good in mind…
Sound and Vision:
Nothing special to be said about the image and sound quality of this one. Everything is as you expect from recent releases and the image only has some minor aliasing errors. The sound does a nice job, supporting the atmosphere where necessary and using all channels to put the viewer in the center of the action.

What is it with Hollywood these days? Ever since The Ring we’ve been seeing hardly anything but remakes of Asian horror movies and while in the beginning they were still quite good, the quality is degrading with every new one. This time we get a remake of “Shutter” from 2004 with Dawson’s Creek Joshua Jackson in the main lead. I’m not going to say that Jackson isn’t good for taking the lead in a horror flic (or playing a bad boy for that matter) but the storyline here is again extremely predictable and the plot twists so obvious that you wonder why the character of Rachel Taylor didn’t see it coming.
Just another Asian remake like there are thousands in a dozen these days. I’m starting to wonder when US cinema is going to try and make something original again or at least make it interesting.
