Storyline

After getting in a car accident, Michelle awakens to find herself in a mysterious bunker with two men named Howard and Emmett. Howard offers her a pair of crutches to help her remain mobile with her leg injury sustained from the car crash and tells her to "get good on those" before leaving the bunker. She has been given the information that there has been an alien attack and the outside world is poisoned. However, Howard and Emmett's intentions soon become questionable and Michelle is faced with a question: Is it better in here or out there? Written by Paramount Pictures

Trivia

This is not John Goodman's only film featuring a bunker. He also starred in Matinee (1993), another film in which people take to a bunker under questionable--though more humorous--circumstances. See more »

Goofs

Howard indicates that the shelter he built is "underneath my farmhouse" in rural Louisiana. However, the water table in much of Louisiana is so high that it would make the building of an underground shelter like Howard's totally unfeasible. See more »

User Reviews

 
Unfortunately the ending ruined an otherwise great film.
30 January 2019 | by Imme-van-GorpSee all my reviews

This movie is full of suspense. It makes you guess about what is real and what is not. It happens more than once that you have to wonder about what is the truth and who is lying.

Because you are just as clueless as the main character, Michelle, you really get to experience the same type of emotions and confusion as she is. This not only makes you feel closer to Michelle as a character, but also to the overall story.

They did, however, ruin this connection that they build over the course of the story by making this sloppy, rushed and just strange ending. If they had made a different ending, my rating could have been an 8 or maybe even a 9. Depends on how good of an ending it would have been.
