Comparison between PG-13 rated version and Unrated version.
Shutter> is the mediocre US remake of the 2004 Thai horror film. Benjamin and Jane are newly wed and spend their honeymoon in Japan. During a night drive Jane runs over a young woman which mysteriously disappeared after the accident. What seems like a nightmare soon becomes reality when shapes of the woman start to appear on Ben and Jane's photos.
The majority of the new Unrated material are uninteresting scene extensions which might have been cut because of the running time. Two violence extensions have been made: Bruno falling to the ground and the finale in which Benjamin injures himself.
Jane wakes up, gets out of bed and walks to the window.
The following sentence of Benjamin has been moved to the prior scene.
The cars both stop. Bruno talks to Jane.
Bruno: "So, it's a loft conversion, but it's much nicer on the inside. No, no. Let me get that."
He opens the door and leads them both upstairs.
Bruno: "All the comforts of home. Right this way."
