Hey there. My wife and I just got back from watching the movie Shutter. I love scary flicks. I used to watch them all the time as a child. I love watching scary movies with my wife cause she scares easily so I love it when she jumps and holds me tight while she lets out a few small shrieks.
I won't give out much details, but I thought this movie was great. The story was good and while watching you will get chills. The "flashing" scene in the middle of the movie was great. It made the moment very suspenseful and I don't remember seeing anything like that in any other movie. The atmosphere at the theater was great too. lol There were a couple of screams from the ladies, a lot of shuffling, many people jumped from their seats, and there more than enough of, "Oh! What the fuck!" were let out by the guys. I don't think I've been to the theater and have seen and heard the audience be so into a movie. It just added that much more to the experience.
Anyways, I guess I've seen one too many scary movies cause half way through the flick, I whispered to my wife, "My scary movie intuition tells me that I know what happened to her." I would say that I was about 80% correct. lol
It turns out the movie is a remake of a Thai movie under the same name. I've read that the directors of the Thai film claim that they've caught a spirit on film when shooting the car accident scene. Turns out that there really was an accident on the road that was used during filming and they caught the spirit on film. Very intriguing. I may have to check that out sometime since that kinda stuff draws my curiosity.
My wife's in bed now, with the lights on. I'm sure that once I join her, I'll be held tightly. We've seen our share of horror movies and our nights usually end up the same. Doors open, lights on, and my wife not letting me go. Even if her life depended on it. I love it.
Keep those cameras flashing. You'll never know what you'll capture on film. Until then, later.
