A divorced woman and her diabetic daughter take refuge in their newly-purchased house's safe room, when three men break-in, searching for a missing fortune.
David Fincher and Jared Leto's second film together.
Hey. Enough. Mind the pizza?
Sarah: What do you mean?
Meg: Our first night. I should've thought of something special.
Sarah: I like pizza.
Sarah: Fuck him.
Sarah: Fuck her, too.
Meg: I agree. But don't.
It is unclear why the intruders didn't destroy the security cameras as soon as Meg and Sarah locked themselves in the panic room, both to mask their identities in case the women were ever able to describe them to police, and prevent the women from tracing their movements (as becomes germane to the plot). Even in the very beginning, before the men screwed shut the doors, the women could have seen all the men grouped two floors down in the kitchen and taken the opportunity to escape through a fire escape upstairs.

The film's VHS & HDTV release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than on DVD.
