**A good cast and a potential thriller, but…**
At first, it looked fine. Well initiated by giving out a proper reason to develop what comes later. But that later part was the biggest let down. It becomes so cliché and because of that I lost interest. Otherwise, it is could have been a decent one with all the good actors. Also the location was good, a perfect setting for the storyline. But not noticeable when the narration enters the second half, mainly because of thriller takes over.
It is the story of a psychologist who recently lost her husband in a car crash, but ended up taking care of step-son after he became mentally and physically incapable. When the life was in the routine, suddenly something bad happens where her young patient goes missing. Following the event, she begins to experience what others won’t believe her. But what comes later is more shocker, a twist in the tale takes us the conclusion.
As the title and its genre suggest, it remained truth to that, but there is no innovation in storytelling. Most of the people would easily predict most of the parts if not the entire film. The casting was the advantage and they all were good, including the kid from ‘Room’ and Naomi. Even though it is rated very low everywhere, as well as by me, kind of entertaining, which means watchable till the end than cut it out in the middle. Not a film to recommend, but if you choose it to watch, I won’t say don’t.
**Not the trainwreck I had imagine it would be after reading nothing but bad reviews about it.**
No it doesn’t do anything new, and no it’s not as intense as it could have been and yes it’s a bit like a Lifetime movie of the week.
But it was still very much watchable, the cinematography was pretty slick and the acting was alright for the more part (even if Oliver Platt kinda phoned in his performance).
They should have made the ending a little more intense to really bring home the bacon, but overall it was better than I expected it to be (even if I wouldn’t necessarily go out recommending it to people, I wouldn’t recommend people not to watch it either).
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.
‘No one could ever replace you. I promise. Please, just put the ax down, and we can talk about this.’
A worn out idea for a thriller and a poor script (Christina Hodson) to translate the tired idea to the screen may have survived as a B movie, but director Farren Blackburn has a clue as to how to make it convincing. If the film is free on TV you may want to use it as background noise for 91 minutes while texting friends or gaming, but otherwise this is a ‘pass’.
The film opens in New England with Mary (Naomi Watts), a child psychologist working from home, bidding farewell to her 18-year-old stepson Stephen (Charlie Heaton). His father, Richard (Peter Outerbridge), is taking him to a special school for the summer. Stephen is very angry. On the way, he and his father get into an argument and Richard reminds him that he wasn’t the one who got expelled. The car goes out of control and skids into the path of an oncoming truck, killing Richard and leaving Stephen paralyzed from the neck down. Some time later we find Mary, widowed, left to care for Stephen’s every need. Caught in a deadly winter storm, she must find a way to rescue a young boy Tom before he disappears forever. And this opens the door to ‘ghosts’ Mary suffers – only to discover the truth about Stephen and Tom through the inept advice of her psychologist friend Dr. Wilson (Oliver Platt). These fragments (and plenty of other non- contributory ones) are tossed together and out comes a silly attempt at a horror film that even quality actors like Watts and Platt cannot salvage. Pass.
