Shutter (2008) (R2) in September

Fox Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Shutter on 8th September 2008 priced at £19.99 RRP. This US remake of the Thai original follows newly-weds Ben (Joshua Jackson) and Jane (Rachael Taylor) as they embark on a working honeymoon with a paranormal twist.

In his English language debut, J-horror director Masayuki Ochiai (Infection, Hypnosis, Parasite Eve) plunges an un-suspecting American couple into a compelling and mysterious nightmare as they embark on a new life in his native Japan. After a tragic accident, a chilling, ghostly shadow begins to appear in their photos. Determined to expose Ben’s past, this mysterious spirit image will stop at nothing in her quest to reveal his dark and disturbing secrets. As they delve deeper into the word of spirit photography, Ben and Jane learn that the past can never truly be left behind.
