The story is about an American photographer movies to a new job in Japan where he starts to become haunted by his past. The ghost tries to revile herself in his photos. This movie is more scary then the Grudge.

This movie is a simple remade-ghost-movie that I can handle watching if I were bored and it happened to be on TV, but I didn't like it as much as I thought I would simply because it's very predictable and I felt as though they kind of tried to give it a sort of Japanese style like it's original, and that just didn't work.

I caught this movie on cable and was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the plot and I thought the suspense built steadily throughout the movie. I enjoyed the ending. It was rather cool. I watched this before viewing the original version. After watching the original so I could compare, I must say I wasn't disappointed with the USA movie. I thought it stayed pretty close to the original story. The changes that were made for American audiences worked just fine. I actually preferred some of the changes that were made. The original version is good as well, but I like this one just a bit better.

I can take pictures of dead people

I don't know what to really say about this movie. This was originally a Japanese horror flick and this version was then remade by the same director. It may have been original back in the day...but after the "revolution" of Japanese remakes in America it just seemed bland and waste of money and talent.

This movie stars Joshua Jackson (Dawson's Creek, Cursed, Fringe, etc) and Rachael Taylor (See No Evil, Transformers) as a newly wed couple who move to Japan for his work and they get in an accident and suddenly they are haunted by a spirit who comes to them in the fashion of Spirit Photography (http://www.prairieghosts.com/ph_history.html). Fun concept...but the actual movie just seemed bland and not well executed. It did not really hold my attention and I did a number of other things.

Shutter #2: Overexposed

Big surprise: another bad U.S. remake of a great J-Horror film.

Like "The Grudge", "Shutter" takes the American stars to Japan to revisit the story of the original. Can spirits not be vengeful right here in the States? Hasn't the most successful remake been "The Ring", and its story was transported back here?

And I'm not sure of their respective ratings, but this version seems toned-down for a PG13. That causes a couple of the most gripping (yet gory) scenes to be removed. So the danger is lessened and seems more silly. And it's funny, this "Shutter" actually adds a couple of murders that are only spoken of in the original, yet the overall movie is still too tame.

I think it's time filmmakers realized that two different cultures exist. What's scary for us may be quite diffe...
