Critic Consensus: Fatally undermined by a clichéd, confused plot and a total absence of thrills, Shut In wastes its talented cast -- and viewers' time.

Critic Reviews for Shut In
There isn't one genuine thrill in the whole thing. I've had bigger scares from my goldfish bowl.
As Mary loses sleep, her paranoia worsens, yet Christina Hodson's monotonous script fails to make Mary's psychological struggles feel any more severe than a case of misplaced keys.
Watts gives her all to this overheated nonsense, but is powerless to make emotional sense of what turns out to be the story's twisted central relationship, and ends up being just another fiercely maternal damsel in distress.
In this achingly inept thriller, you will see Naomi Watts do what she can to sell a plot of such preposterousness that the derisory laughter around me began barely 20 minutes in.
Audience Reviews for Shut In
This movie has little suspense and surprises, it tires to replace those with jump scares. Watts acts great although the character she is playing is not that deep or intelligent at times. It is a good twist but it was poorly executed, the one thing that stands out are some of the shots (good cinematography).
Shut In is just basically what it tries to do. It attempts to scare people poorly and terribly at the way too. Just another low-quality horror bait. Don't watch.
