There is nothing of redeeming value about this film.

... this one stands alone as the year's Average Joe of thrillers.

Not even Naomi Watts can save "Shut In", a cheaply filmed and lazily generic excuse for a thriller that should be shut out of your viewing.

One bright spot in the film is Martin Starr's performance as one of the invaders. He is cocky and sarcastic, and though not physically intimidating his malevolent attitude makes me not want to spend any time with him.

You walk into this film, hoping to feel claustrophobic but walk out trying to shake off boredom.

By the third act, we have seen so much of so little that the outcome leaves everyone shortchanged.

It's the audience that gets locked into a "deep vegetative state."

Shut In feels unfinished and scrappy. If you want to watch Watts wriggling around naked and bound in a bathtub, it may entertain you for five minutes, but the only thing that's scary about it is the waste of talent.
February 24, 2017
Too generic, and is contained within a genre that needs innovation and resourcefulness to stand out from the crowd, as a saturated market where so few productions feel unique.
February 23, 2017
It's more likely to have the viewer giggling in disbelief than gasping with shock.
February 23, 2017
It's low-key and modestly budgeted, but perfectly well made, and Watts maintains a cool and steady presence.
January 19, 2017
This shockingly empty thriller has a great cast, but, while delivering its jump-scares, it completely ignores the story's looming, daunting psychological and emotional ramifications.
December 31, 2016
This empty-headed 'thriller' is tedious from the word go.
December 22, 2016
A film of a clumsy narrative that doesn't offer anything surprising, reckless or frightening. [Full review in Spanish]
December 12, 2016
Despite a rather basic premise the film plays out more intriguingly than one might assume.
December 8, 2016
A psychological thriller, elegantly filmed, with a dream location worthy of a romantic comedy and good performances but collapses when the script takes to the ground of the ridiculous. [Full review in Spanish]
December 7, 2016
A horror film made up of annoying sounds, trite images and dialogues of the level of "I must be going crazy" and "There is no such thing as ghosts!". [Full review in Spanish]
November 29, 2016
One of the most painful and unexciting movie going experiences of the year thus far.
November 22, 2016
How Shut In managed to get a worldwide release presents a bigger mystery than its story.
November 20, 2016
This movie is bad. It's hilariously bad. The horror elements are wasted frivolously on silly jump scares including raccoons, dramatic grabbing of body parts, and every other horror trope in the book.
