    As you all know, Hollywood has run out of ideas on how to give the audience chills. In this case the remake of the 2004 horror Thai film, Shutter.

Shutter demonstrates that the subject of spirit photography, which has been a point of speculation for more than a century, might have passed its peak. After reading the plot of this film viewing the film would just seem a bit retro, We have seen or heard of films such as Shutter involving ghosts and technology, emerging via cell phones, video tapes and computers, it’s not working, well, at least here in Hollywood it isn’t.

   Will Ferrell’s latest comedy was a complete failure on it’s opening day, Only bringing in 5 Million dollars. The opening day leads to an  estimated 14.3 million weekend. Before opening the film expected a 43 million weekend, looks like New Line needs some better “estimators”. The film’s income on opening day was just icing on the cake for New Line, just adding to the string of box office failures, and the studio becoming part of Warner Bros, and not being an independent company. Well let’s see if 14.3 million is over estimated as well.
