This avenging ghost story gets you on the ghost’s side early on, which helps you forgive the shlockiness that often mars the picture. Newlywed Jane (Rachael Taylor) seems OK, but her photographer husband Ben (an oddly macho Joshua Jackson) is a pompous jerk. When Ben gets a photo assignment in Japan, Jane meets Ben’s former coworkers from a previous trip, all of whom have a suspicious layer of sleaze. This is supposed to be separate from the primary plot – in which ghostly images start appearing in Ben’s photographs – but we know they’re insidiously connected. The fun of Shutter is discovering how, and then watching the payback that results.
