Rated 2.0

A fashion photographer (Joshua Jackson) and his bride (Rachael Taylor), on a working honeymoon in Japan, are beset by strange occurrences and ghostly images on the photos they take—his professional pictures and her tourist snapshots. Luke Dawson’s script is yet another Japanese supernatural thriller—this time, apparently an original rather than an English-language adaptation, but with all the standard elements, from the ominous, scratchy music to the dark rooms (in both senses of the phrase) and sudden scares. Only the punning title distinguishes this one from The Ring, The Grudge, The Eye or any of the other entries in this exhausted genre. “Exhausted” is also an appropriate word for Masayuki Ochiai’s flaccid direction and for the plot’s perfunctory, anticlimactic hell-hath-no-fury resolution.
