After the death of her husband, Dr. Cara Harding's faith in God has been shaken, but not her belief in science. In an attempt to get her more open to accepting unexplainable psychiatric theories, her father introduces her to Adam, a patient with multiple personalities who also takes on some of the physical characteristics of his other personalities. But Cara quickly discovers that his other personalities were murder victims and the more she finds out about Adam and his past, the closer she and her loved ones are to becoming murder victims themselves.Written by

Starts well but will leave you feeling like you've wasted 2 hours of your life.
I'm giving this 1, simply because the first half built the expectation that this movie may be halfway decent.
Julianne Moore's performance is great as usual, the cinematography and score are above average for Hollywood and Jonathan Rhys-Myers gets to overact in a variety of different characters... sounds OK right?
Wrong! The second half of the movie descends into an oozing morass of nonsense and bible-bashing claptrap. I'm not even objecting to the overly religious theme per se, it's that even this is completely incomprehensible in this movie. I could drive a bus through the holes in the plot.
What's worse, the ending leaves way for a sequel... please NO!
At the end, my partner and I both started shouting expletives at the screen.
With Shelter we wasted four hours total of our lives and I am writing this so that you don't have to.
