At first , I thought it was a Japanese movie, being known for their hit horror movies. Until I realized that most of the actors and extras look like Filipinos. Until a scene where the main actress grabbed a copy of a magazine which has Thai characters.Wow, Thailand can export their horror movies. By the way, I was watched this movie dubbed in Filipino (Tagalog).
Concepts are unique. There were many shocking scenes. Ofcourse, the elevator, under the bed, stairs, fire exit and girls with long hair elements were there. About the story, I was really affected with the revelation at the end where the lead actor’s character, they boyfriend of the girl turned-ghost, he allowed his friends to rape her girlfriend in front of him, then they bullied him to take photos of the their evil acts. Yes, i was affected by the story.

I wish Philippine Cinema can export our horror movies too.

Shutter (Thai: ชัตเตอร์ กดติดวิญญาณ) is a 2004 Thai horror film by Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom Wongpoom. In 2008,  Hollywood released a remake. Perhaps it was that good that now it has an american version.

I’m giving this movie, 3 out 5 chocnuts!
