(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.
Un film ben costruito, anche se un po' scontatuccio. Il colpo di scena in realtà non è neanche un vero e proprio colpo di scena. Shutter è ben fatto, ma al di là di questo è un po' vuoto. Personalmente amo gli horror asiatici, ma questo ha deluso le mie aspettative con una trama che potrebbe benissimo passare per un racconto dell'orrore da campeggio.
Well I saw the American version and sense its not here..... I loved it though. Snobs can say whatever they want, but I thought it had a great story, that it was terrifying in some parts, especially if the idea of ghosts is creepy to you, and that the ending was awesome. Very enjoyable.
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)
