What happened to patient 67?

“In 1954, two U.S. marshals investigate the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane on an island in Massachusetts. They run into trouble when they are deceived by others, a hurricane hits and when an inmate riot traps them on the island.”

Here’s the trailer of Shutter Island:

Never read the book but the plot sounds like an ideal setting for scary scenes. And judging from this insane Shutter Island teaser poster, the film is likely to encroach on the horror genre.

Stranded on a remote and barren island off the cost of Massachusetts, I doubt I’d go after some crazy soul… What would you if you were on Shutter Island?
