QUICK TAKE:
Thriller: A college student soon discovers that her life is in danger when her roommate turns out to have deep psychological issues.
PLOT:
Sara Matthews (MINKA KELLY) is excited to be attending the University of Los Angeles and studying fashion design, having spent most of her life in Des Moines, Iowa. Her first night on campus, she makes friends with party girl Tracy (ALYSON MICHALKA) and gets romantically involved with cute drummer Stephen (CAM GIGANDET) despite being recently broke up with boyfriend Jason (MATT LANTER).

That first night, she also meets her new roommate, Rebecca (LEIGHTON MEESTER), who is actually a schizophrenic who forms an unnatural attachment to Sara and ends up trying to both imitate her and rule her life. Soon, Rebecca is attacking Sara's fashionista friend from back home, Irene (DANNEEL HARRIS); twisting Jason's mind so that he thinks Sara and he are truly done; and manipulating Sara's lecherous Professor Roberts (BILLY ZANE) into quitting the classroom.

On Thanksgiving, Sara goes home with Rebecca and meets her parents (FRANCES FISHER and THOMAS ARANA) and briefly comes in contact with Maria (NINA DOBREV), another girl Rebecca once was obsessed with. Soon, Sara finds her life and the lives of those closest to her in mortal jeopardy as Rebecca spins further and further out of control.

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!!!
