Verdict on Locked In
Locked In is a thriller following the events leading up to an accident involving a woman. It takes the story back down the path of learning about the unusual relationship between mother and daughter-in-law. However, the story shows a much more toxic environment the daughter-in-law is caught up in.
This is a thriller that has a clever idea, however, it is told in a strange way. The story tries to show the events being discovered by a nurse, even though most of the movie is the daughter’s point of view. Outside of that, we get story about the toxic relationships between people which can cause a crippling control over people. The film doesn’t click as well as it could do and ends up going in unusual direction.
Where to Watch: Locked In is available to watch on Netflix now.
