Movies like Shutter Island?

Are there any movies like Shutter Island, that keep you thinking about the movie long after you are done? I am not looking for same plotlines or anything, just movies that are very memorable because of their amazing storyline. Thanks!


I don't think Inception is a prequel to Shutter Island at all. The story is completely different. They do share the same actor, DiCaprio. But thanks for the suggestion. :)

I have watched it already and it is very good. Although personally I think it doesn't compare to Shutter Island.

    A Clockwork Orange


    American Beauty

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Note: Shutter Island is a book by Dennis Lehane (therefore definitely not a prequel), the book had so much more to it, it's worth reading if you haven't already

    The Sixth Sense, Inception, and The Crazies are some I can think of off the top of my head.

    Total Recall will have you trying to "guess" what REALLY happened at the end, much like you pretty much had to "guess" what REALLY happened in Shutter Island.
