SHUT IN is a US thriller about a woman living in a remote area who cares for her catatonic step son.
There are prolonged scenes of psychological threat in which a character becomes increasingly paranoid and unstable. A woman is also seen bound and gagged in a bathtub.
There is moderate violence including a stabbing shown with impact detail, although without sight of blood, and a brief scene in which a character is hit over the head with a blunt object.
There is infrequent strong language ('f**k') and references to prescription medications.
