QUICK TAKE:
Suspense/Thriller: A young woman who was kidnapped, but escaped two years earlier now fears her sister has been abducted by the same serial killer.
PLOT:
Two years ago, Jill Parrish (AMANDA SEYFRIED) claims to have been abducted from her bed and taken out to the thick forest outside of Portland where her abductor placed her into a deep, dark hole and threatened to kill her. She escaped and was eventually picked up by police, but could not lead them to where the hole was and she could not identify her attacker because she never really got a good look at him. Detective Powers (DANIEL SUNJATA), the cop assigned to her case, ended up not believing her and halted any further investigation despite Jill insisting that there had been other victims.

Jill still walks the forest, looking for the site where she was brutalized. She is on medication to control her anxieties and lives with her sister, Molly (EMILY WICKERSHAM). When Molly goes missing, having been abducted from her bed in the middle of the night, Molly implores Powers and his commanding officer, Lt. Ray Bozeman (MICHAEL PARE), to help but they refuse. Only new Det. Peter Hood (WES BENTLEY) seems to have any sympathy.

Gun in hand, Jill decides to take the law into her own hands and find her sister. When Powers hears of her threatening various citizens who may or may not be connected to the case, he orders Jill arrested. She then enlists the aid of Molly's boyfriend, Billy (SEBASTIAN STAN), and her co-worker, Sharon (JENNIFER CARPENTER), in her quest.

    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.
