Time Out

The jury is out on whether we need another J-horror scare story, but it's not an open-and-shut case. And with the re-make in the works, the file remains open.

Eye for Film

The latest in the line of hairy hauntings, Shutter, for the most part conforms to expectations, although it has a pay off which lifts it above the pack.

Familiar though it may be, the film is well made and contains more than its fair share of supremely creepy moments, plus there's a clever twist near the end that you really won't see coming.

Best watched at night with the lights down to get the full effect. There are images here that can SCARE even the most hardened of viewers. Too bad the story… More

By the numbers Asian horror with a couple of novel twists and jumps but I'm bored with the genre.
