    It's suspensful, and a bit confusing but not gorefest scary.

    Nope.

    Shutter Island is a great movie that was unfortunately badly-marketed as some kind of horror film, when in reality it's a psychological thriller. The trailer was cleverly edited with all the "jumpy" moments when the film is actually not scary at all. It's just another example of a studio not knowing how to properly market a film.

    It depends- it's more of a confusing movie, kind of like inception, but it has those moments where some scenes are scary. Though remember that everyone looks at movies a different way- it was kind of scary for me but my friend was completely fine with it

    No. It is a psychological thriller, not a horror film. The whole film itself is quite eerie and creepy, but not scary. Personally I think it is a brilliant film!

    The movie trailer makes you think it's about ghosts but it's not.

    It's all in the head of the lead character.
