Dollar Bin Horror Spotlight - Shellter
Shellter tells the story of a young woman who awakens in an old fallout shelter after a biological event and finds she must do unspeakable things to others or they will do terrible things to her. The fallout shelter’s doctor and his insane nurse treat a steady stream of patients with gruesome results. The doctor wants the girl to replace the unbalanced nurse but the girl has to decide what she is willing to do to survive. The viewer has to make that same decision: How far would you go to survive?
This unique indie horror film combines elements of both torture films (like Saw) and zombie films to come up with one of the most disturbing and gruesome films I've ever reviewed. The film never holds back on scenes depicting psychological, physical, and sexual torment and leaves them burning in your head long after the film is over. The film is well shot and I really like the colors used in the film; they set the tone for the entire film much like the pale greens did for the Saw films. I will say that in between the scenes of torture, I found the film to be kinda slow and you could see wholes in the plot, but just the sheer uncomfortable feeling you get while watching this movie makes up for that. If your not a die hard horror fan, I have a feeling you might not be able to handle just how brutal this film gets. It truly is disturbing and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it...three time...Check out the official site HERE.
