snugged up in bed
Stuff i've watched recently; both actually quite similar? Both about women who have been trapped in bunkers.

10 Cloverfield Lane- Quite tense and kept that tension really well through the entire movie; when you though something was (relatively) safe or settled then something would upset it again without it ever feeling forced. Except for the one dying old lady, which came out of nowhere. Really enjoyable until the last 10-15 minutes, at which point you might as well get up and leave. :B

This one also really tripped my abused child alarms! It made me genuinely scared and uncomfortable, though not so much that i didn't enjoy the film. Just a heads up.

Room - I looked this one up because the kid apparently got a bunch of awards recently? It was really good too, though unlike 10 cloverfield lane the captor isn't in the room with them the entire time so its less immediately scary. This is angry child who doesn't understand vs severely depressed mother, and its a really good study in human psychology and similar which is super my jam. My only real complaint is that when they (spoilers??) escape, they do an interview and the reporter asks some hideously inappropriate questions about suicide and implies that the woman is a bad mother. I also found the kid's outbursts kind of annoying but they're not really out of character for a 5 year old. :v
