QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A family must contend with supernatural events that occur in their house, most of which are captured on videotape.
PLOT:
It's 1998, and Dennis (CHRISTOPHER NICHOLAS SMITH) is a wedding videographer who lives with his girlfriend, Julie (LAURIE BITTNER), and her two young daughters, Katie (CHLOE CSENGERY) and Kristi (JESSICA BROWN). Julie is quite happy with him, even if he runs his business out of their garage with his friend, Randy (DUSTIN INGRAM), and despite Julie's mom (HALLIE FOOTE) thinking she could do better.

Everything is going great until weird things start happening in the house, all of which coincide with little Kristi suddenly having an imaginary friend who she calls Tobey. She speaks to him in the corner of her room, just to the side of a video camera that Dennis has placed there, as well as elsewhere in the house, in attempts to record those odd occurrences.

As he continues to capture them on tape, he and the rest of the family slowly start to realize that something supernatural and potentially quite dangerous is escalating in their home.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the first two "Paranormal Activity" films, or supernatural-based horror movies in general, they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For some violence, language, brief sexuality and drug use.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
