Shelter Movie Review 143

Shelter is a horror/thriller movie starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Julianne Moore. It is directed by Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein.

 Julianne Moore stars as Dr. Cara Harding, a psychiatrist. Her father, who is also a psychiatrist, is working with a difficult patient, David( Meyers). Dave seems to have a multiple personality and her dad wants her to interview him. Cara is very skeptical about multiple personalities and she thinks that he is putting on an act for her. David has one personality called Adam and Cara thinks that David is making him up. She delves into his background and she finds out that David is not who he says he is. David was a man who was murdered by witches or something like that and he has come back through Adam. It turns out that Adam was obsessed with David's murder and took on his personality. Cara wants it to stop and she brings in David's mother to talk to Adam. Adam knows things that he could not possibly know if he was not David. They are freaked out.

Cara is beginning to believe that David is in him and she brings him back to where David was killed. He tells her that the Devil is coming. He changes back into Adam again and gets nasty.Now, there is another character in him called Wes. We find out that he is assuming personalities of dead people and he is dangerous. It all goes weird from here. It is a jumble of witch doctors and some old priest and I really couldn't start to explain it. Watch the movie if you want to find out what happens, but let me warn you about this one, it is dull. I thought that it was very poor and I like horror, but this wasn't very good. I am a fan of Rhys Meyers, but he could not save this movie....It is boring and dull and there are no scares. Maybe I missed something, but if you want a good movie, avoid this one! I am giving it a 3/10. Poor and boring....
