12 Feb What are some scary/horror movies that predominantly take place on an island? – Quora
I may be a little biased with this one because I absolutely love a movie, TV show or book with a plot centered around a psychiatric ward. But c’mon, a secluded island and a morbid psychiatric ward makes for a memorable movie.
The movie follows two deputies who are brought to the island to investigate our beloved psychiatric ward when one of the patients goes missing. Because this movie is based in the ‘50s, our protagonists quickly learn that there is more than just a missing patient they need to worry about. I’m talking unethical and illegal treatments to the patients.
A storm on the island cuts off the power in the psychiatric ward and the patients begin roaming and fucking shit up. This is when Teddy Daniels (Leo) starts losing his mind. He begins to see things that aren’t there, questioning people he thought he trusted and his sanity goes out the window.
I wish I had never seen this movie so I could know what it feels like to watch it for the very first time…
