Ah yes the never-ending remakes of Asian horror films. Looks like this time 
the lead actor traded his plastic bag+video 
camera(American Beauty) for a Leila! Well done!

Sometimes the Sundance Channel will show the original movies on weekends.

From: "Kyle Cassidy" Subject: [Leica] m8 features prominently in a new movie 

a few years back i became a fan of a quiet thai movie called "shutter" about 
a photographer who, in a very "omen" way, begins to 
capture photos of ghosts (that look a lot like light leaks) on film. it's 
relatively low budget and doesn't really bring anything 
new to the horror table, but it's a nice movie and has some legitimate 
thrills in it. i ordered the VCD from a hong-kong distributer 
after reading about it in some back issue of Asian Cult Cinema -- WELL, long 
story short, philfo just handed me a pair of tickets to 
... tada -- AN AMERICAN REMAKE because we know it's impossible for americans 
to watch a movie with little words along the bottom --  
the remake features what looks to be an M8 in nearly all of the promotional 

as someone who bought a leica in large part because of seeing one in a movie 
(High Art was the one that tipped the scales for me) 
all i can say to solms is: rock on! it's about time you got with the product
