SHUTTER Directed by Masayuki Ochial. 85 minutes. Rating: NN
SHUTTER proves, like The Ring and The Grudge before it, that hell hath no fury like a Japanese woman scorned. Especially if that woman's dead and her long-haired, pale-skinned apparition begins popping up in unexpected places to try to wring scares out of you. Joshua Jackson plays an American photographer who brings his new bride (Rachael Taylor) to Tokyo for a working honeymoon. After a late-night car accident, the two begin finding the creepy image of a Japanese girl in their respective photographs. What develops (haha) is pretty predictable if you've seen either of the aforementioned movies, which were also J-horror remakes. But neither of them featured Dawson's Creek star Jackson attempting to speak Japanese. Talk about Lost In Translation.
