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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's more likely to have the viewer giggling in disbelief than gasping with shock.

It's low-key and modestly budgeted, but perfectly well made, and Watts maintains a cool and steady presence.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

This empty-headed 'thriller' is tedious from the word go.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
December 22, 2016
A film of a clumsy narrative that doesn't offer anything surprising, reckless or frightening. [Full review in Spanish]

Despite a rather basic premise the film plays out more intriguingly than one might assume.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
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]

One of the most painful and unexciting movie going experiences of the year thus far.

How Shut In managed to get a worldwide release presents a bigger mystery than its story.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
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.

Alas, when you eventually do know the cause of her fears, Shut In loses its supernatural grip on you and becomes predictable.

There isn't one genuine thrill in the whole thing. I've had bigger scares from my goldfish bowl.

Naomi Watts deserves better than this. So does Oliver Platt. So do we.
