Movie: Shelter (2010)

The sheltering has begun.

Shelter (2010) is a supernatural horror-thriller about a psychiatrist, Dr. Cara Jessup (Julianne Moore) who discovers that her patient, Adam Saber (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) has a mysterious and inexplicable case of multiple personalities disorder.

During a session with Adam, Cara describes herself as a doctor of science but a woman of God. Her faith in God doesn't dwindle despite having her husband killed by a mugger on one Christmas night. However, her daughter, Samantha Jane and her father, Dr. Harding are devout unbelievers.

As Cara delves deeper, she finds out that all of Adam's personalities are murder victims. As unbelievable as it seems, she has to accept that some kind of supernatural and evil force is causing all these to happen. Her faith is put to test and it might be too late when people around her, especially those who have lost their faith in God begin to drop dead mysteriously one by one...

Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers (From Paris with Love) are fantastic leads who give the audience an impressive performance in this movie. The storyline has an interesting plot summed up by a mixture of science, religion/faith, and supernatural elements. However, some of us might find the topic about losing or having faith in God kinda touchy. Some might find the existence and practice of witchcraft kinda bothersome.

Overall, I think this movie is somewhat stuck in the middle; it's neither a full-fledged psychological thriller without supernatural interferences nor a supernatural horror movie without scientific explanation and proof. It's somewhere in between these two extremes.

However, great acting does give me much relief. You might want to catch it on DVD if you love horror movies. :)
