Shutter (2008)

Fear 0/5
Gore 0/5
Entertainment 0/5
Creepiness 0/5

Bland, tame, PG-13 and boring remake of the 2004 Thai film of the same title. It's a bad sign when you're 37 years old and you are TWICE the age of literally every other person in the theater.

I wonder if there are departments in each of the major Hollywood studios that are dedicated only to "re-imagining" Asian ghost films. How many times do I have to sit through the same cranky female ghost story, be subjected to the same cheapo scares and see the same resolution? You've seen Shutter countless times, it was just called something else.

Stars a guy from Dawson's Creek and a guy from the Office. And some blonde girl. And a totally non-scary Japanese girl as "the ghost". You see the twist end coming from the first frame - from the trailer even.

So so glad this was free.

It was bad, nor original, and just ridiculous
