Shutter

Rated NR

Some Hollywood execs apparently didn’t get the memo that PG-13 Japanese horror remakes stopped being interesting years ago. Joshua Jackson plays a photographer who has moved to Tokyo with his new wife (Rachael Taylor). While they drive to their honeymoon, a strange ghost-like apparition (as opposed to a normal ghost-like apparition) jumps in front of their car, and so the haunting begins. The story is very easy to predict, which makes all of the stuff leading up to the inevitable ending a waste of time. Taylor has an impressive screen presence, but here, she’s just laboring in hackneyed swill that’s not the least bit scary. There’s a whole “spirit photography” angle, in which ghostly blurs appear in photographs. Most of the time, it just looks like overexposed film, which brings back memories of failing grades in high school photography class.
