Film Reviews: “Take Shelter” (2011)


Written and directed by Jeff Nichols. Starring Michael Shannon.

Curtis hasn’t been feeling well. He’s having bad dreams, hears the sound of thunder in his head, and sees ominous clouds in the sky. He believes something bad is coming! What does it mean? Despite worries from his wife and friends, Curtis constructs a large storm shelter in his back yard. He becomes obsessed, but is it without merit?

Fantastic thriller that kept me intrigued over it’s two hour running time. Standout performance by Michael Shannon that should have been included in the Oscars this year. Also some genuinely creepy moments in this film. I jumped a few times!
Definitely a must see.

4.0 out of 4.0 stars!
