When it comes to horror movies, I’m usually the first in the group of friends to chicken out.

Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley
Directed by: Martin Scorsese
What’s a psychological thriller without a mental asylum on an island with good old storm and rain? Leo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo play a pair of detectives who investigate the classic ‘person vanishes in a locked room’ mystery. The neo-noir film maintains a certain degree of assumption from the viewer; until it twists and turns to break down the plot you believe in.
