Predictable thriller....
19 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Shut In is a rather predictable thriller that treads a well worn path.

That's not to say this is a poor film, its just that this concept has been recycled so many times, its become rather obvious whats happening and where its going.

Naomi Watts hands in a decent effort in the lead role and indeed, the cast in general hand in competent performances. The tension builds nicely but I felt, the reveal was too sudden and robbed the film of much of the scare factor that had been built up to that point.

The actions of the key character also seem a bit absurd at times as does the overall concept, which stretches credulity to a degree.

In short, not a bad film if you like a few scares but regrettably nothing terribly special either. Six out of ten from me.
