Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Will the next terror-minded remake involve a possessed telegraph machine or a grudge-minded ox and cart? Neither option could be any lamer than the shock-free Shutter."
‑ Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly
"At some point in Shutter you will probably lose count, along with your patience, but the film will keep right on going."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Shutter, which attempts to do for cameras what The Ring did for videocassettes, what Pulse did for computers, and what The Grudge did for grudges."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Out of the list of horrible remakes I've experienced in 2008, "Shutter" really isn't the worst one I've seen yet, but it sure does suck enough to rank up there..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Shutter the latest photographic enlargement of an Asian horror picture, is clearer and sharper than many of its predecessors, but even the most expert re-touching cannot obscure the fact that we have seen it all before."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"With Shutter, that nerve-tingling soundtrack gets heavy use almost from the beginning of the movie. It becomes tiresome."
‑ Philip Marchand, Toronto Star
"Though a presentation of 20th Century Fox, Shutter has the look and feel of a proper J-horror film."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"Avoid unless you've never seen a horror movie in your life or you just have very low standards."
‑ Ali Gray,
"... the film feels like a made-for-TV movie."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"Shutter features another pale, scraggly haired young woman a la The Ring haunting our protagonists. Yawn."
‑ Christian Toto, Washington Times
"Shutter is seriously short on shudders."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"If Shutter is any indication, the reputation of professional photographers is still on the wane. Not only are photographs creepy, the film suggests, but so are photographers."
‑ Michael Hardy, Boston Globe
" absolutely redundant piece of work..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Similar to a theme park ride that scares kids, this Asian horror film frightens only newcomers to the genre from which it practically bootlegs."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"paramenei eksisoy, an ohi kai perissotero flyaro ap' tin pigi tis empneysis toy. Apo tin opoia krata episis to megethos ton logikon almaton, oksynontas ta opoy mporei gia na klepsei merikes eykoles fantezi tromares, eno kseperna to prototypo sto epipono t"
