The story is about a man as a vision of an upcoming disaster causes him to take drastic action by building a shelter in his backyard. Yet this comes at a price as his work and family life is thrown into disarray and his own sanity is called into question. This movie has a chilling and scary start and the ending made me go uh?. The acting is superb and the CG was not bad.

One of the best films of 2011. A brilliant film in every way. Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain give Oscar caliber performances in this emotional drama. The last 30-40 minutes are the most intense I've ever seen. I absolutely loved it!

Fantastic drama that draws from many sources. The film, like it's main character, builds up quiet desperation and a feeling of unease that erupts with emotional healing. At it's core, there is a strong bond of family that most will relate to. Michael Shannon is just terrific. This truly is the best film of 2011 and I'm kicking myself for not seeing it sooner.

Michael Shannon has done his job very good. The story and the seconde players are also very good. Nice movie

With all the apocalyptic visions he experiences, Curtis suddenly feels the need of renovating the storm shelter near his family's house. *** The whole film actually bores me, but I totally appreciate it, both the story and actors' performances with special mention of Jessica Chastain portraying a role I think she already mastered. I read somewhere, I think on its trailer that this film was tagged as great American literature, well, I must say, I would rather see it on print than on screen, at least for me.
