Shutter (Masayuki Ochiai, 2008)

From the executive producers of two other films lifted from Asian horror cinema comes a movie about a camera that transforms into a robot and kills young people. No wait, it’s about a camera that only takes murky, green-lit photos of children without souls. No, wait, this film actully retells the storyline from those cable specials you watch when you’re bored and “Modern Marvels” or “How It’s Made” isn’t on. Ooh, pictures of spirits. Come the fuck on. What’s next, a movie about those bus tours that take tourist dunces around to haunted hot spots? It would be interesting if Joshua Jackson had sex with that spirit taking her shirt off toward the end of this clip, though. How would that even work? Meanwhile, his wife — the analyst with the charming accent in Transformers — is stuck under a bedsheet. Even bedsheets aren’t safe from the onslaught of dumb horror remakes. — Johnny Loftus
