It's gotten a little less than love here, but I have to say this flick gave me a lot more than I expected it to. There's only so much you can feel from a horror movie, & this one really got to me. I felt oddly emotional at one point and there were a lot of things I can relate to, which is never ever the case when I'm watching a horror movie (other than the occasional "if someone was stalking me I'd..." sort of thing)
The original shutter. Flipping SCARY! I've never screamed and startled so much in a movie before. I left my lights on at night for 2 weeks because of this one. If you're a fan of Asian horror movie, you're in for a treat from this Thai horror!
(Vukekparsurleweb) Ce film d'horreur thaïlandais à la bonne réputation se révèle un très honorable pastiche de la production J-Horror du début des années 2000. Ms un pastiche reste un pastiche et, outre des emprunts formels plus que flagrants (Ring 2!), le scénario très générique (énième vengeance d'une femme bafouée) et pas toujours bien maîtrisé tire l'ensemble vers le bas. La conclusion est cependant marquante.
A general rule regarding horror movies: the more it explains, the less scary it is (even if it uses all the tricks in the book like “Shutter” does). But perhaps in this case it’s justifiable. Adolescent boys’ fear of the girl with no make-up is something you need to deconstruct, and as always, there’s something behind this dread that has more to with masculinity than anything else. Sympathy for the ghost.
Effective ghost story that manages some freshness in an otherwise stale genre. The acting is good and the scares are not that bad. The drama angle is sort of well played and added some gravitas to an otherwise OK movie.
