Of course, a twist ending per se is by no means a sales argument. However, when a surprising and not completely far-fetched twist leaves the audience with a real bang after an already strong film, that is undoubtedly the cherry on the tasty film cake. And that’s exactly the case for two well worth seeing, albeit very different, thrillers that are on television late tonight.
While Nitro is showing “ The Game ” on April 20, 2022 at 10:10 p.m. , Kabel 1 will be showing “ Shutter Island ” from 11:20 p.m. The latter runs as part of a small Leonardo DiCaprio evening directly after Christopher Nolan’s mindfuck masterpiece » Inception «.
But as you can already see from the times: The broadcasts of «The Game» and «Shutter Island» overlap to a large extent. So you have to choose one of the two films, at least if you want to watch it live on TV. Alternatively, both can currently also be streamed via Sky Ticket and are of course also available as purchase and rental VoD as well as on DVD and Blu-ray.

But if you just want to zaps comfortably into the TV program and you don’t know both films yet, our article might help you with your decision. Actually, you can’t go wrong with either one, as both impress with a strong cast, high tension and an oppressive atmosphere to edit.
This is Shutter Island
In «Shutter Island» director legend Martin Scorsese once again stages a powerful Leonardo DiCaprio , but above all the eponymous island is brilliantly staged. In 1954, US Marshals Teddy Daniels (DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule ( Mark Ruffalo ) are sent to investigate the disappearance of a patient at the local institute for psychotic violent criminals. However, they do not get much support from the staff at the facility. Daniels suspects more and more that something is wrong here.
