Way better than Shutter Island
20 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw this movie, I had no idea who anyone in it was or what it was going to be about. I was VERY pleasantly surprised. First of all, it's an incredibly suspenseful thriller that surpasses the over hyped Shutter Island and, I don't want to give anything away but there are some similarities in the plot. The difference is, Shutter Island shifts around in so many dizzying directions you lose focus, while Dreamkiller is intriguing while remaining believable which makes so much of a better impact as a film. The main actor, Dario Deak seems as if he is new. I haven't seen him in anything before, but he was very good and kinda hot too! I highly recommend this film. Search it out!
