Shutter is a 2004 Thai horror film directed by Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom Wongpoom. The movie is about a young couple named Tun and Jane, who return from a party late at night and accidentally hit a woman with their car. They panic and decide to flee from the scene, but they soon start to experience strange and terrifying phenomena which seem to be connected to the accident.
The movie begins with Tun, a photographer, and Jane, a fashion designer, celebrating their success in their respective careers. They drive back to their apartment in the middle of the night and hit a mysterious figure with their car. Tun, who is driving, panics and drives away without checking if the woman is okay. They both feel guilty, but they put it behind them and continue with their lives.
Soon after the accident, strange things start happening to Tun. In his photographs, he begins to notice ghostly images of the woman he hit. As the days go by, the image of the woman begins to become more clear and defined. Jane begins to notice that Tun is acting strange, distant, and is starting to drink too much.
As the movie progresses, we learn that Tun was once in a relationship with a woman named Natre (played by Achita Sikamana), who died in a car accident. The accident was caused by Tun's drunk driving, and he didn't stop to help her. It is revealed that the woman they hit with their car is Natre's vengeful spirit, and she is haunting Tun and Jane.
Tun tries to unravel the mystery of Natre's spirit and seeks help from a spiritualist, who tells him that Natre's spirit is seeking revenge for her death. He also learns that Natre was not the only one who died in the accident, and that there were three other people involved who have been hiding the truth all along.
The tension builds as Tun and Jane are plagued by increasingly terrifying and violent encounters with Natre's ghost. They are haunted by her in their apartment, in their car, and even in their dreams. As the truth about the accident is revealed, the haunting becomes more intense, and Tun and Jane must confront the reality of what they have done.
The climax of the movie takes place in a dark, abandoned building, where Tun and Jane discover the truth about what happened on the night of the accident. In a creepy and intense scene, they try to fight off Natre's ghost, who is relentless in her pursuit of revenge.
Shutter is a slow-burning, atmospheric horror movie that relies on suspense and tension to create its scares. The cinematography is beautiful and haunting, with its use of light and shadow adding to the eerie, supernatural feel of the movie. The performances are excellent, especially Ananda Everingham as Tun, who conveys his character's guilt and fear effectively.
Overall, Shutter is a well-crafted horror movie that tells a compelling story of guilt, revenge, and redemption. It is a must-see for fans of Asian horror and those who enjoy a good supernatural thriller.
