Naomi Watts is back in horror with Shut In and the trailer looks very promising for horror fans

Shut In 2016 poster - Naomi WattsShut In stars Naomi Watts, who many horror fans will no doubt recognize from the 2002 Japanese horror movie remake The Ring. Especially now that the third movie in the franchise, Rings, is getting hyped these days. However, Watts has had an impressive career following the popular horror movie – including two Academy Awards nominations.

In Shut In she’s starring with Jacob Tremblay, who caught everyone’s attention in the Oscar hit Room. A movie that earned his co-star Brie Larson an Academy Award, and won himself many awards as well.

Along with Watts and Tremblay, we have a very familiar face from this summer’s Netflix mega hit Stranger Things with Charlie Heaton. Heaton played Winona Ryder’s oldest son on the nostalgic horror show – and hopefully, he’ll be back in season 2. In Shut In he plays the son of Naomi Watts.

The official plot for Shut In is described with these words:

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 movie is directed by Farren Blackburn, who has primarily worked on some amazing TV shows including Doctor Who and Daredevil. The screenplay is by first time screenwriter Christina Hodson, who already has a second movie coming out in 2017, as she co-wrote the script for Unforgettable.

Shut In will be released in US theaters on November 11, 2016.

Watch the trailer for Shut In here:

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
