Creepy 'Shutter Island' promos surface online

While Martin Scorsese's made-in-Massachusetts film "Shutter Island" isn't slotted to hit theaters until Friday, Oct. 2, film enthusiasts are getting a sneak peek with the official one-sheet hitting the Internet.

The promo is an ominous red-and-black image featuring the fictional namesake island peering in the horizon coupled with the fortuitous Boston Harbor lighthouse alluding to the film's dramatic ending.

Also, the studio unveiled the flick's official Web site here. It's a basic, less-is-more design showcasing the creepy trailer released a few weeks back.

In Martin's Scorsese's "Shutter Island," two U.S. marshals (played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo) investigate the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane to an eponymous Boston-area island in 1954. During the investigation, they encounter a web of lies, a hurricane and a deadly inmate riot that leaves them trapped on the island.

Based on the epic novel "Shutter Island" by Dennis Lehane, the Boston-shot flick features DiCaprio, Ruffalo and Ben Kingsley and was shot in Taunton's Whittenton Mills Complex (recrafted as the horrific Nazi concentration camp Dachau) as well as the Medfield State Hospital and Peddocks Island. Other locales include Borderland State Park, Hyde Park and Wilson Mountain Reservation in Dedham.
