Panic Room Panic Room

It was supposed to be the safest room in the house.

This claustrophobic thriller centers on a divorcée and her daughter who are caught in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with three burglars in their New York City brownstone, retreating to the vault-like safety of their aptly named panic room. As the intruders try to breach the room's security, the embattled duo must stay one step ahead.
