Recently divorced Meg Altman and her daughter Sarah have bought a new home in New York. On their tour around the mansion, they come across the panic room. A room so secure, that no one can get in. When three burglars break in, Meg makes a move to the panic room. But all her troubles don't stop there. The criminals know where she is, and what they require the most in the house is in that very room.Written by

The film's VHS & HDTV release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, meaning there is a loss of original picture information visible in both sides (left and right) of the frame than on DVD, which presents the original theater aspect ratio (2.39:1). See more »
I saw this film at the movie theatre when it was just released and a couple of times since then. It is amongst my favorite thrillers for its brilliant actors, its dark ambiance and every minute suspense.
If you like Jodie Foster and/or David Fincher, it is definitely the film for you as they are delivering here the climax of they talent.
