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.

I love a good slow burn but this one was a bit too slow for my tastes. Michael Shannon was epic as always so I have no complaints there and even though this is not horror by any stretch of the imagination, it could have been a fantastic film had it just picked up the pace a tad. Five stars for Shannon, two for plot execution. Final rating of three.
The last 5 seconds of the movie was the only excitement. A waste of 2 hours
Very good, if you are looking for true horror please look somewhere else. This is a very well made mental health movie.
I LOVE this movie- a real WTF? ending, and of course Mike motherf****ng Shannon blows doors off. Highly recommended for some off beat viewing.
