This week sees the release of Shutter Island, a dark, spooky film about an investigation into the disappearance of a patient from an insane asylum. While it’s not Martin Scorsese's best picture, it certainly brings some striking (if not a little predictable) gut punches. Not since Cape Fear has Scorsese really attempted to creep us out, and in my opinion that’s way too long for a filmmaker who’s in love with all things Hitchcock (but that argument we’ll save for another time).
