A heart-pounding thriller about a widowed child psychologist who lives in an isolated existence in rural New England. Caught in a deadly winter storm, she must find a way to rescue a young boy before he disappears forever.


The first time the mother puts the electrodes on the son his shirt is wide open on his chest from the above angle. Then during the switch to the side angle his shirt appears much less open, and then back to the above shot with it opened wide.

Shut In is a movie that will scare you, thrill you, and make you hate Maine lol. Naomi Watts is great in her lead role, she really is convincing you can tell her character really is at her wits end. The suspense and scenes of terror are well done and very convincing. The son really does give a great performance and I love him in the role, he is so creepy and disturbed. The boy that plays Tom is also good in his role. I liked Oliver Pratt too, his character does not require a whole lot, but none the less, he is still good at what little of a role he has. The script is well written and I liked the dialogue between the characters. The ending was very well done and entertaining, didn’t exactly suspect it, I had the considered the possibility of a version of how it ended, but I was not sure of it. Bottom line: shut in is a very entertaining, well acted and all around well made film.
