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.
Fear will find you.

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
One, never be loud

Two, never lose control. Three, never open the door. Four, never talk about the breathers.
