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.

gooood psychological thriller!! every second was intense, based on the fact of what scary thing was occurring or the anticipation of what was to come. kept me back and forth on whether or not he was mentally ill! would of loved to see more of the end but the whole point of the movies was the process of it, so i understood & let my imagination guess the rest.

It's a really well acted film with a grounded but strange premise. I'm personally not that big a fan of the ending but I see what it was doing.

I dig this movie. This is one of those movies that the ending just makes you sit in silence for a few minutes to ponder. Part to think about WTF just happened, and the other part because it just really f***ed with your mind.

I mean, shouldn’t everyone up tornado valley’s ass have a fallout shelter? If you’re reading this as a horror fan, you at least have one in preparation for zombies. You’ll definitely dig this guy.

I thought it was a great film. The acting was great. Story was very believable. It was a slower movie but not a put you to sleep slow. I thought it did a great job of keeping you informed of what was going on throughout. The end cemented it for me. I would watch it again it was a decent suspense movie
