New Shutter Island trailer online
Another new trailer for Shutter Island has appeared online, and this one gives a very dark and scary look into the film. This one would make you think it's the closest that Martin Scorsese has come to horror yet, the opening certainly gave me a scare early this morning with the volume up.
The film is adapted from the Dennis Lehane novel (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow, Jackie Earle Haley, Elias Koteas, Patricia Clarkson, Ted Levine and John Carroll Lynch in a complex and dark tale.
Shutter Island is set in 1954 and begins when two U.S. Marshals arrive on the island converted into a leading mental institution to begin an investigation of the disappearance of a patient, one of the Marshals has been eager to investigate the island for some time as he holds some personal suspicions about the place.
When they get there things aren't exactly what they see and the people running the institution are far from cooperative, and the investigation begins to unravel both the case, the façade of normality, and the Marshal's mind.
Previous trailers have shown a superbly shot film from Martin Scorsese with a great performance from Leonardo DiCaprio, and this trailer from Spike through ShockTillYouDrop looks like it's delivering a similar level of both. However here the concentration is on the story and really bringing across the feeling that the film is going to be a dark, on the edge of your seat, thriller. Superb.
Here's the trailer.
