Take Shelter

Take Shelter

Directed by Jeff Nichols

A man plagued by terrifying apocalyptic visions struggles to determine if they’re real or if he’s losing his mind. Either way, Curtis (Michael Shannon) is in trouble, and so he doesn’t tell his wife Samantha (Jessica Chastain) about his nightmares, and instead seeks answers in psychology books, while obsessively building a shelter, just in case. Jeff Nichols (MIDNIGHT SPECIAL) broke out with this acclaimed portrait of a man on the brink of disaster that’s instantly relatable to all of us who live in fear of the very real apocalyptic scenarios on Earth’s horizon.

A man plagued by terrifying apocalyptic visions struggles to determine if they’re real.

Cast: Kathy Baker, Jessica Chastain, Katy Mixon, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham

I do agree. Only a complete coward with no relationship with his wife would handle his issue like that. That aside, i loved the movie. Great ending.

Really, really good. Not really a horror movie, tho. Definitely worth watching!

I agree that its not really horror but its definitely suspenseful. You are never really sure of whats going on. Great acting and I loved the ending! Watch out for some spoilers in other fan reviews!

I could not stand Michael Shannons's character in this movie. I really wanna give it two skulls but the acting is very good. The writing however is weak. He has nightmares and then wakes up in pain. More nightmares and hes having a seizure. He's reluctant to explain to his wife what's going on even to the point where he hides the fact that he wet the bed. If you wanna watch a guy suffer and not seek help, look no further.
