Shutter Islands is one of the most awaited movies of the year brining in two legends of Hollywood together. One of Hollywood's most famous directors, Martin Scorsese who is known for a different genre of movies than horror casts Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio on the movie.

The two legends are teaming up for the third time after having delivered two great movies Gangs of New York in 2002 and The Aviator in 2004.

Shutter Island is a screen adaptation of the 2003 novel of the same name by Dennis Lehane. The movie revolves around this hospital for criminally insane on an island in the Boston Harbor in the year 1954. Shutter Island is not about mystery but about solving the mystery. Once again Martin Scorsese proves that he cannot be predicted beyond an expectation. The movie combines some breathtaking technical work with memorable performances.

US Marshall Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) has been sent to a mental asylum on Shutter Island to investigate the disappearance of an inmate who is believed to still be somewhere on the island. However, along with his partner Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo), he finds his investigation blocked at every turn by the doctors in charge of the facility chiefly Dr. John Cawley (Ben Kingsley). A hurricane hits, they uncover a sinister experiment, patients escape, and all hell breaks loose.
