Shutter Island (2010)

You will know how Shutter Island is going to end in the first 5 minutes of watching it, but the time leading up to the end is fantastic.  This movie had me enthralled every moment.  I would not classify it as a horror movie so much as a suspense.  Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo make an excellent acting team.  They are detectives who head to Shutter Island to investigate the disappearance of a mentally ill inmate who has simply vanished.  DiCaprio plays an obviously haunted man with visions of his dead wife popping up throughout the movie.  His character and his portrayal of the character are so perfect that you can feel every emotion he is feeling.  At some points I was scared to death and others I wanted to scream or cry.  Shutter Island is unsettling and tense.  Do not go into it expecting blood and gore, which are completely overdone these days.  It’s a wonderful psychological thriller that will leave you shocked, stunned and wanting more.
