Take Shelter is another weather disaster film that goes deeper into the psyche of its protagonist. Curtis LaForche (Michael Shannon) begins to experience haunting visions of the end of the world. Driven by the paranoia, he devotes his energy into restoring the storm shelter in his backyard. However, this devotion is viewed unfavorably by his peers.
From the trailer, it seems like the tone is focused more on LaForche’s mentality and will be more of a psychological thriller than a simple, Twister-esque film. I’m definitely all for it, but I’m kind of disappointed about this trailer giving too much away. Regardless, Take Shelter will be out October 7th.
