Movie Review: Shutter Island 5/5*

Matin Scorsece’s ‘Shutter Island’ is the best psychological thriller in years.  Starring Leo DiCaprio and Ben Kingsley, it takes place on an island based mental hospital.  Only dangerous insane criminals are housed there.  There is no escape since the island is encircled by sheer rock cliffs. 

DiCaprio is a U.S. Marshal called in to find a runaway patient/prisoner.  Ben Kingsley is the possibly insane psychiatrist running the ward.  I cannot tell you much more than this.  It is great.  Good acting, good story, full of suspense.   Go see it!

Rated R for gory violence and scary scenes but it is NOT a slasher movie.  A horror movie for adults, not teens.
