This is the wrong movie
Verified purchase
I watched the actual movie "Intruders" ( or Shut In or whatever else it's called) last year and it was pretty decent. This link doesn't give you the movie from the description. I watched the first few minutes and realized it was the wrong one-on-one you'll never see the actors given in the cast list.

I looked it up and the movie from the description is no longer available on Amazon for streaming. Someone should fix this.

This is not the movie described!
Verified purchase
The synopsis describes a woman with agoraphobia and men who break into her home. When in all actuality, the movie is about a young woman living with her dad and has some sort of mental break down. Boooo! Very disappointed, Amazon!

Wrong Movie. Amazon please correct this.
Verified purchase
Amazon needs to fix this. A different movie plays when selected. I was interested in watching the movie they have displayed and that appears in the trailer: "Intruders," the 2016 movie about the agoraphobe. However, the movie that actually plays when you select it is the 2015 movie "The Intruders." Which is a completely different movie and storyline. "The Intruders" is an ok movie, but definitely not what I was wanting to watch when I selected it. The display images, the cast listings, and the trailer are all for the 2016 "Intruders." But, the other movie plays. Very disapointing.
Amazon, please fix this issue, because I would realy like to watch "Intruders."

HORROR MOVIE AND KEPT ME AT FULL ATTENTION THE ENTIRE NINETY MINUTES. A TWIST ENDING ALMOST PREDICTABLE, BUT

Did I watch the same movie???
Verified purchase
I'm not sure why this movie has such high marks... The synopsis isn't even close to accurate ( no agoraphobia, and no "secret" psychosis either )...

The movie is highly formulaic, with virtually no scares... no major plot twists as others have commented... the acting, camera work, and audio were all generally done just fine... there are no special effects, so nothing to talk about there...

And of course this movie suffers from the well known syndrome of "horror movie actors must make the stupidest decisions possible at the worst times possible..."

Quite frankly, I found it boring and uneventful... and of course they toss on the cliche ending attempting to make you think there might be a sequel... highly doubtful, or I certainly hope not...

My advice, if you are bored out of your mind, go ahead and watch it for free with Prime... just don't get your hopes up... 2 stars...

AKA 'Shut In'
Verified purchase
This movie was surprisingly good. Great production value, premise, and location. The house is almost a character in this film. It's a huge old federal mansion that implies the family had wealth at one time, but given the interior decor is so dated, the money isn't as plentiful anymore, but there's still plenty of it to attract thieves. There was a little more telling than showing, which is always disappointing in a film, but common in horror. It has a Hitchcock vibe as it attempts to switch protagonists part way through, but I found myself staying loyal to the female protagonist throughout. It was a bit too graphic to really earn the Hitchcock comparison, as even in 'Psycho' the camera didn't fully show you the violence, nor did it glare directly at the aftermath, as it does here. I do tip my hat that they managed to make a full length horror without resorted to cliche tired old jumpscares. It has a cerebral energy, which is appreciated, but it felt like the backstory was rushed to conclude the 2nd act. Like they felt they had to hurry up and get it all out in one scene, which was a let down. It's a bottle movie where the protagonist is trapped, much like the film 'Hush' and she's forced to outwit her attackers. I thought the lead (Beth Riesgraf) might be Kate Hudson's daughter, but then I looked it up and they are about the same age...so clearly not. Beth just looks strickingly similar and young for her age.

Please Use the 1.5 Hours You'd Have Spent Watching This Doing Something Meaningful

...like washing your hair, perhaps. Or watching paint dry.

Nearly anything you can imagine would be a better use of time.

I had hoped when I read that "agoraphobia is not her only psychosis," the main character would lead me down a road of vengeful depravity that would feel righteous and justified and perhaps a wee bit too enthusiastic, but deserved all the same.

Unfortunately, the main character lead me nowhere. But here. To this comment section. So that I may share with you my disappointment and displeasure.

The beginning was drab and awkward, throwing you right into the middle of some unidentified "shameful family secrets" that are obviously meant to support the weighty and confusion relationship between the main character and her brother (and you could be forgiven for not realizing that's who he was because there is so little information supplied or to suggest exactly who they are and what their relationship is). The mood is immediately burdensome and stifling, but being so early in the film and having so little information, that mood translates directly into *yaaaaawn* because I just met these people. Why do I care? How am I supposed to know who they are? Why they are? Why do they both look like they were pulled directly off one of those paper envelopes from McCalls back in the day that held your grammy's old dress patterns? Because they do. Washed out, dusty, and so much "who gives $#I+."

But then, less than ten minutes in, when the bother mentions his sister's need to forgive their father, and she deflates, crumbles, and otherwise flees, it's impossible not to know exactly where this is going (when considering her agoraphobia and other "psychosis." And, I'd have been alright with that, but there is exactly zero emotional content here that inspires you to have anymore than a cursory emotional connection to any of these characters. Maybe you don't even care. You just feel obligated to care because the movie wants you to.

But everything and everyone in this movie is so flat and one-dimensional (from the characters to the setting to the storyline) that it's barely possible to be indignant or enraged by the "shameful family secret" reveal. It also doesn't help that the main character's "other psychosis" and how they play out on the stage she has set are unrefined, undefined, and seem poorly formulated to play as big a part in the movie as they do.

I find myself left sitting here wondering why the movie was even made. It's like the framework of a house without any of the stuffings and walls and comforts that make a house a home. That's a though. It feels like an incomplete project.

Don't bother. I give it one star purely for existing.

Decent, professionally made horror thriller
Verified purchase
Decent, professionally made horror thriller, I don’t think it quite rose to the level I wanted it to, but I overall enjoyed it. Pacing was good, it was well cast with solid acting, good production values, I do think in the third act of the film there was some plot and premise issues, not in the sense of not being enjoyable or it being confusing, but I am not sure I entirely bought the change in terms of threat and a changeover in personality and motivations of the main character.

The film centers on a woman named Anna Rook (played by Beth Riesgraf), a woman who has not left the home she grew up in the ten years since her father died. She is a severe agoraphobic (to the point of just being paralyzed with anxiety if she so much as steps outside the door). Her life is wrapped up in caring for her dying brother Conrad (Timothy T. McKinney), who has terminal pancreatic cancer. The only other people she ever sees is a lawyer who comes by one time and the person who delivers her prepared meals every day, a young man she befriends (Dan Cooper, played by Rory Culkin).

I don’t think it is too spoilerish to say that early on in the film Conrad dies. Conrad had urged Anna to go on with her life, to move out and find a life of her own, but we see that Anna can’t even leave the house to attend his funeral, so bad is her agoraphobia. Sadly people had expected Anna to leave, knew that there was a considerable amount of money in the house, and arrive during the funeral to rob the place. Anna hides in terror from the burglars, a group of local men, but as one might guess from the other reviews and the description of the movie, agoraphobia is possibly the least worrisome of Anna’s deep mental issues and soon the burglars are in grave danger.

I liked the turning of the tables, I liked how the whole time though Anna was shown as a capable defender she wasn’t superhuman and was still vulnerable, I liked the complex relationship between Anna and Dan, and the deep dark secret of Anna’s home was definitely messed up. My main issue was really how quickly Anna changes from seemingly meek, even weak, to definitely not meek or weak. My other issue was in trying to find a character to root for. Anna at first, clearly, but as I learned more about her yeah maybe not so much. Definitely not the semi-murderous mean burglars at first, but later on human nature kicks in and I do feel a little sorry for them (as in you are bad people and deserved to be caught and punished but geez not like that). Pacing was decent the whole film, it had some surprises, it was well cast and acted, so overall a good horror thriller.
