Take the Shutter Island Psychological Assessment & Watch Two Blu-ray Bonus Clips





Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island hits DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD next Tuesday, June 8th, and in honor of the occasion Paramount Home Entertainment has released two new Blu-ray bonus clips along with a Psychological Assessment Test.

Starring three-time Academy Award® nominee Leonardo DiCaprio, the film features an outstanding ensemble cast including Mark Ruffalo, Oscar® winner Sir Ben Kingsley, Max von Sydow, Michelle Williams, and Emily Mortimer. Based on the best-selling novel by celebrated writer Dennis Lehane, Shutter Island (Blu-ray/DVD review here) was written for the screen by Laeta Kalogridis and tells the story of two U.S. marshals investigating the mysterious disappearance of an inmate from Ashecliffe Hospital for the criminally insane. But as their investigation proceeds, they uncover an intricate web of deception where nothing may be as it seems.

It's a three-phase test that includes Cognitive Recollection, Empathetic Emotional Recognition, and Interpersonal Sociability, all using your friends on Facebook.

    If I took it I wake up tomorrow on a boat in the fog heading to an island that just doesn't look all that creepy in the bright sunlight.

    It interacts with your friends on Facebook - if you know them by their picture, that sort of stuff. It's pretty cool, but yeah, if you're not into Facebook, then it's pretty useless.

    And if you're into Facebook you don't care about your privacy or how companies can own your information.

    As the Tick would say: Unsettling trend.
