Get the fudge out of the house!!

Released in 2010 and directed by Josh Stoddard, "Sheltered" is a micro-budget slasher flick about a group of 20-somethings who seek shelter at stranger's house during a hurricane, but there's something really 'off' about the host and his brother. Will they survive the night?

If you want to see a multi-million dollar horror film, stay clear. If you wanna see a well-made independent flick made on nickels & dimes check out "Sheltered." The acting and script are surprisingly adept. Gerald Downey & Manoel Hudec standout as the courteous host and his little brother respectively while Stacia Crawford is effective as the main protagonist. One of the other actresses, Tricia Small, wrote and performed several of the cuts on the soundtrack. Speaking of which, there's a moving acoustic song that plays at the 47:12 mark and it's spectacular, even worth the price of admission.

You'll notice the cheapness of the photography right off the bat but, other than that, the filmmaking is quite professional, all things considered. Stoddard effectively creates an ambiance of eeriness somehow mixed with beauty and even reverence, which can be observed in the climactic scene of one of the characters standing in the rain with his/her hands held up to the sky. Speaking of the climax, the filmmakers drop the ball in the final 18 minutes as the story gets muddled by an attempt to explain the convoluted backstory. It doesn't really work because it's impossible to have compassion for a savage, sick murderer(s). Nevertheless, there's enough good here to give "Sheltered" a marginal recommendation. I appreciate well-done micro-budget independent flicks because you'll never get what they can offer from mainstream films. They offer a unique experience.

The film runs 84 minutes and was shot in Glendale, Southern California.

GRADE: B-
