Editorial Reviews

A young woman awakens in fallout shelter and finds she must do unspeakable acts to others in order to stay alive.

Zoey, (Cari Sanders) awakens in the medical facility of an underground fallout shelter. The Doctor, (Will Tulin) explains that an infection has killed most of the population. The only people left are either a few lone survivors like her and the infected: The living dead.

The Doctor is assisted by a Nurse, (Maria Olsen) who it seems has gone completely insane. They "treat" a steady stream of survivors/patients. The only way of "curing" the infection is by surgically removing the affected area, which leads to gruesome results.

The Doctor wants Zoey to replace the unstable Nurse and become his new assistant. Zoey is very hesitant to join the Doctor who is willing to do whatever it takes to survive, no matter how questionable or terrible the acts.

But after a patient offers to trade places with Zoey and do "anything" the Doctor wants, Zoey realizes that if she doesn't do it, someone else will do these terrible things to her.

Zoey has to decide what she is willing to do to survive, and the viewer has to make that same decision: How far would you go to survive?

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I guess it gives you something to do if you are bored.

There was no deep meaning in this film as others have suggested, regarding what we would do to survive.
JP
The storyline was OK, but executed with weak enthusiasm.

Here's 90% of the movie: Victim tries to make an escape, then doesn't. Victim tries to make an escape, then doesn't. Victim tries to make an escape, then doesn't, etc. The actors hop back and forth between the same two rooms. Then you see the victim is capable of hurting other innocent people, but can't do anything to the one in charge, even though there are tons of makeshift weapons around her.

The acting by some of the actors is questionable. The blood looks like some cranberry syrup you can get at IHOP. I've seen better film quality on youtube.

The only thing I can commend the movie for is what the victim discovers. Other than that, I'm sorry I spent $1.99 on this....

If you want to see how one's psyche may make a turn for the worse or better in an extreme situation, go watch "I Am Legend".

In the midst of preparing for a weekend trip Zoey [Cari Sanders] is suddenly overcome with dizziness and faints. Men with gas masks move in and transfer her to an underground facility that was set up as a nuclear fallout station. Now it's being used to house the survivors of a viral outbreak that had a 99.9% kill rate. A rare few dropped into a deep coma for days before awakening, untouched by the virus. The station is run by a bizarre and sinister doctor [Will Tulin], who is recruiting survivors for his own plan to restore the population of the world. He treats Zoey with kindness at first, but gradually his plan to subordinate her will to his own becomes clear. The question is, will Zoey agree to help him with his plan, or rebel?

The real experiments that this story is based on showed that ordinary people could do terrible things in high stress situations when ordered to do so by a superior. Shelter shows us, step by step, how such behavior could occur in an emergency. The relationship between the doctor and Zoey is fascinatingly complex, and the surrealistic, just-over-the-edge presentation of events works very effectively to show how a person could become a monster in a crisis. Shelter will make you ask what you would do, and will not let you off with any easy answers.

The acting by the main character was pretty good. The secondary character was terrible. That doesn't make for a very good indie. Especially when interaction between characters is key. The storyline was OK, but executed with weak enthusiasm. Watching was like being stuck in front of a school film. Indies with similar storylines have far surpassed the efforts of Shelter. It's not worth the watch. The thumbnail image is more entertaining.

If you like to watch nothing but blood, gore and torture just for the fun of it, you will love this movie. They should have named this movie "Crazy doctor goes wild". The other reviews will give you an idea of the storyline. Yes, the story leaves you with a personal question. Mine was, "why did I waste my time and money to watch this poorly done piece of garbage?"Shellter

I saw this last night, and in all honesty..the gore and certain other things that I will not mention, was just done for shock value. I think most of us have noticed, that some reviews on here for these low budget indie films, are from people who worked on or were in that particular film. I do not know how this film received six awards from the various indie film circuits, but I'm glad I only payed $1.99 for this rental. There was no deep meaning in this film as others have suggested, regarding what we would do to survive. If you do still wish to watch this film...wait till its 99 cents,but you'll never get back those 90 minutes of your life.

Too bad this movie didn't have a budget worth a damn. I thought the two main characters did a fair job of acting. I have seen much worse films with much larger budgets. I would like to see this film re-made with a bigger budget and more character development.

Its ok but not worth the time it takes to watch the movie. I guess it gives you something to do if you are bored.
