No.10 - Shutter Island
Martin Scorsese hasn’t done horror since Cape Fear, but he’s back at it again. Scorsese’s pinup boy Leonardo DiCaprio and the tragically underrated Mark Ruffalo star as two U.S. marshals investigating a woman’s disappearance on a prison island for the criminally insane. It looks grotesque and psychologically earth-shattering from a glimpse at the trailer and it boasts an all-star roster that includes the fetching Emily Mortimer (sigh), Michelle Williams, Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow, and Jackie Earle Haley. The release date shuffle is a bad omen, though. Shutter Island was supposed to be in theaters last October before it was unexpectedly dumped this February, where most stinkers go. But we have faith in Scorsese and a cast that reads like a list of Oscar nominees.
