3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The drama of TAKE SHELTER resembles Todd Haynes' SAFE in its real-world fear and paranoia, but it's warmer, more poignant and more suspenseful than that 1995 psychodrama."Box Office "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-Entertainment Weekly "Nichols is still concerned with family legacies, and the ways people in smaller communities relate to each other, but TAKE SHELTER is slower and smoother, deliberately developing a mood of creeping dread."A.V.
