The criminals know where she is, and what they require the most in the house is in that very room. Written by Film_Fan

Goofs

Sarah, a diabetic starts seizing while in the panic room due to low amounts of blood sugar. Even if Sarah was a type one diabetic, her body would not go into ketogenic shock so rapidly while in the panic room. She did not expel enough energy in the time she ate dinner that night, to the time they became locked in the panic room for this to occur. She had to have had some other serious condition for her body to seize that quickly into the night. If she was going into ketogenic shock, her body would have expelled large amount of ammonia that would have also intoxicated her mother. See more »

Quotes

Meg: If we stay calm everything will be fine, okay? Just stay calm.
Sarah: You're making me nervous.
Meg: I'm sorry.

Edge of your seat thriller!
10 April 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This was a very suspenseful and exciting thriller from David Fincher who is responsible for my all time favourite film which is Seven. This new film has another very good performance by Jodie Foster but the acting standout of the film has to go to Dwight Yoakam with awesome performance as Raoul. The only problem i had with this film was its ending which was a bit of a let down but did not really spoil the film at all.
