Professional photographer Tun (Ananda Everingham, the Thai version of Orlando Bloom in the looks department) and his girlfriend Jane ((Natthaweeranuch Thongmee) are driving home after a night of partying with friends. Jane's behind the wheel and the two lovers are flirting with the intention of a love fest once they get home. Suddenly a woman appears out of nowhere on the road and they slam into her, sending her up over the roof and onto the pavement as they wreck the car into a road sign.
After both Tun and Jane have a momentary loss of consciousness, they come to and glance around, first checking to see if the other is okay, and then apprehensively peeking behind them to the unfortunate victim. Jane turns to open her door to check on the young woman but Tun grabs her arm, stopping her. They then make the worst decision of their lives. Tun screams for her to drive away, and she quickly does just that.
[Okay, STOP. It really should be painfully obvious that making that particular decision never bodes well in the course of a horror movie. We've seen it all before, in films like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Creepshow 2 - NEVER (EVER!) HIT AND RUN!! Because you know you're in for it. Regardless, Tun and Jane apparently don't watch horror films and they slam the young woman and bolt.]
In Asian horror, there are a few key components that are always dredged up. The first and most important is there is always one helluva curse. Add to that a ghost with long dark hair and a penchant for horrible revenge and you've got yourself a movie. Shutter is wrought with tension and at times the visuals (as they so often are in Asian horror) are terrifying and tend to last long after the final reel.
Which should be reason enough to check out this eerie and unsettling film.
