The Daily Wire, a conservative news organization, has taken the rare step of releasing its first original film, Shut In, on YouTube for free. On the evening of February 10th, the thriller Eagle Eye, Black List, and BloodList, helmed by xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage and Disturbia filmmaker D.J. Caruso, will premiere globally on YouTube. The thriller follows a young single mother who is held captive in her pantry by her violent ex and his meth-addict friend, and she must flee before it’s too late to save her children.
Shut In Cast
Rainey Qualley plays Jessica, Jake Horowitz plays Rob, Luciana VanDette plays little Lainey, and Vincent Gallo plays an unnamed character in the film.
The story revolves around a young single mother who must do everything she can to save her children after being kept captive by her abusive ex-boyfriend and barricaded inside a pantry. Jessica is a mom who must use creativity to defend her two tiny children from rising danger while also escaping. Because she is separated from her children by the reinforced door she is confined behind, the lady is compelled to take drastic steps, including attempting to set fire to the barricade at one point.
The film was supposed to premiere exclusively for Daily Wire subscribers, but after a one-time YouTube screening, the site’s subscribers will get an exclusive window to see it. Voltage Pictures is also selling the picture to international distributors.
“We’re making an event out of the premiere and showcasing to the market what we’re capable of as a company making outstanding entertainment,” Daily Wire co-founder and co-CEO Jeremy Boreing said of the strategy.
We believe that if we succeed in this, memberships will follow. Keep in mind that the stream will only live that night when it comes to diluting overseas sales. In other words, the movie is permanently removed from YouTube after 1 hour and 40 minutes.” The company’s live-screening of its first acquisition, Run Hide Fight, got 300,000 spectators, according to The Daily Wire.

In Dec 2021, Shut In was released its debut trailer, and based on what we’ve seen so far, it appears to be a claustrophobic home invasion thriller.
