Creepy Thai horror shocker SHUTTER, which, while starting off on what seems like overly-familiar ground, manages to turn the genre on its head with a truly unexpected plot development, a cracking final reel and a terrifying closing image that will haunt viewers long after the credits have rolled.
Driving home from a drinking party, photographer Tun (Ananda Everingham) and his girlfriend Jane (Natthaweeranuch Thongmee) accidentally knock down a teenage girl. But rather than going to the victim's aid, Tun convinces Jane to leave the scene of the accident. In the days following the incident, bizarre ghostly images begin to appear on photographs taken by Tun. Investigations into the cause of this mysterious phenomenon lead Tun and Jane to a girl from Tun's past and a very dark and deeply disturbing secret.
An effective ghost story that combines atmospheric chills with plenty of shock moments, SHUTTER has already inspired an American remake, currently in production for release in 2008 and set to star Joshua Jackson (CURSED; DAWSON'S CREEK) and Rachael Taylor (TRANSFORMERS; SEE NO EVIL).
