Storyline

In the film, Ray (Skarsgård), Claire (Riseborough) and their seven-year-old daughter, Zoe, are an average American family in Kingsville, North Carolina - except they have existed in a bomb shelter since escaping a day of devastation that changed everything. For 301 days, they have transformed their cement prison into a home, holding on to memories of the past and hope for a normal life someday. And for 301 days, the family has eluded what looms above the surface - the heavy breathing and booming footsteps that punctuate the night, threatening their fragile existence. All the while, the family has managed to stay hidden. Until now. Now their safe haven has been breached... and something is coming for them. Written by John McLaughlan

Goofs

When Ray was trying to escape the fallout shelter he broke his left shoulder so he could fit through the opening in the ceiling. Then in the next scene when Claire and Zoe became trapped under the net Ray showed up swinging and hitting the breathers with both arms. He shouldn't have been able to attack the breathers with his left arm because he had a broken left shoulder.. See more »

Entertaining Slow Burn Thriller
22 September 2015 | by HorrorOverEverythingSee all my reviews

Don't really want to say too much about this since I feel that the best way to enjoy this film is to go in knowing as little as possible. That's what I did and I was thoroughly entertained until the credits rolled.

This isn't an action packed gore fest, instead it is a well crafted thriller that does a good job of getting you attached to the characters. The slow build up helps to make the characters feel real, that and the excellent acting by the small cast.

Some may be deterred by the slow pace but I felt the slow pace just made the finale that more thrilling and emotional. The screenwriters thought outside of the box for this one and it was really refreshing to see something new.

7/10
