      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Being a remake of a Thai horror film instead of Japanese doesn't prevent Shutter from being another lame Asian horror remake. Read critic reviews

      • Sep 25, 2018

        I found this yesterday and thought it might be worth checking out but sadly this was a poor horror film. The twists and turns never deliver and the horror moments are just cliché moments. The poor remakes of Asian horror continues and considering the cast, this was a massive misfire. I was slightly annoyed they went with the finale twist, that was quite stupid and over the top. It would have been nice if the filmmakers respected the source material and went all out, this feels too safe. This had a lot of potential but a poor choice with filmmaker and a script that required further work, this was dead on arrival. Such a shame. 25/09/2018.

        Another pointless PG-13 horror movie that didn't manage to scare nor interest me in the least way possible. The jumpy moments were unnecessary and the big payoff was stupid.

        Scary but a pretty bad storyline!
