Critic Reviews for Shack Out on 101

All Critics (2)

For such a short movie packed with so much incident, Shack Out On 101 devotes an awful lot of its time to folks simply hanging out and shooting the shit, and it's richer for it.

The Dissolve

A snappy entry into those Red Scare movies from the Cold War paranoid period of the 1950s in America.

Audience Reviews for Shack Out on 101

Trimmed with a plot about spies that seems incidental (if not entirely disposable) while filled with plenty of incidental conversation, The Shack wins admiration for it's performances and theater-like presence. It doesn't always make sense ... but that was the 50's for you.
