Rating: 4/5 -- As in Todd Haynes's 1995 masterpiece, Safe, we are in a world that can't be pinned down.

4 stars out of 5 -- [A] beguiling mix of Polanski-esque psychological terror and Loach-like social realism....Aided by the poetic, often Malick-esque visuals...it's a brave idea, boldly executed.

Writer-director Jeff Nichols builds his elegantly shot, weather-sensitive horror story in waves of tension that crest as if pulled by tempests. -- Grade: A-

Rating: 2/5 -- Like a laissez-passer to our apocalypse sensors. Full Review
Financial Times
Nov 25, 2011
In my estimate, this unique and frequently arresting film suffers from the monotony of the lead players' affect, and from the film's urge to have its gloomy cake and eat it. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- [Jessica Chastain] is just as preoccupying here as in the better films she's appeared in this year. Full Review

Boasting an insidious dread throughout, the tension builds to near unbearable levels in this effective and powerful portrait of the deterioration of mental health. Full Review

Product Description:

An Ohio family man experiences a series of disturbing visions that gradually begin to weigh on his marriage and community when he begins obsessively constructing a heavily fortified storm shelter. Curtis LaForche (Michael Shannon) has a good life. He lives in a beautiful house with his loving wife, Samantha (Jessica Chastain), and their deaf six-year-old daughter, Hannah (Tova Stewart), but begins to sense that something ominous is on the horizon when the dark clouds of swelling storms begin invading his dreams. Taciturn, Curtis refuses to discuss the dreams with anyone, but feels compelled to dig out a massive storm shelter with the help of a good friend (Shea Whigham). Meanwhile, as Samantha grows increasingly concerned with Curtis' erratic behavior, the local rumor mill begins to churn. Are Curtis' dreams a prophetic omen of things to come, or is he perhaps headed down the same dark road as his mother, who was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia when she was approximately the same age that he is now'
