If you care about yourself, run away from this movie as fast as you can
8 January 2017 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

I don't want to spend much energy writing how bad this movie is. I'm writing this review to save at least one soul from, unfortunately, like me, stumbling upon this movie. The only reason I gave it a two is so you don't think that I'm a complete hater. Shut In is the only movie ever I was tempted to walk out of the cinema. I didn't leave it because I thought it might become a little better in the next half redeeming first 45 minutes spent for nothing. And that was a mistake. It is hard to make a thriller which becomes more boring and stupid towards the end. Farren Blackburn (the director) did that easily.

But hang on just a second. Is there ANY reason in this universe (or multiverse) for which I would recommend this movie? There is. You can watch Shut In if you suffer from insomnia or sleep related disorders. It'll get you fixed in no time.

Conclusion: If I could choose to go through what Mary (Naomi Watts) went through or watch Shut In again I would easily choose the first option.
