QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A young couple must contend with an entity from another dimension that's after them.
PLOT:
Kelly (ASHLEY GREENE) and her boyfriend Ben (SEBASTIAN STAN) have just moved into her parents' investment home in a new community. She works in a veterinary office and he does audio-visual installation work, which comes in handy for the surveillance cameras they have installed on the place. But Ben has kept some of his former equipment secret from Kelly, including some designed for paranormal research. Years earlier, he, his girlfriend Lydia (JULIANNA GUILL) and team leader Patrick (TOM FELTON) tried to recreate -- high tech style -- an old experiment from the 1970s.

Both were designed to prove that ghost, entities and other such supernatural phenomenon actually exist, and that by focusing their mental energies, they'd be able to manifest such a being. It worked, Lydia was sucked into another dimension, and now Ben has tried to put that in his past. Unfortunately for him, Patrick has continued but intensified the experiment, thus opening a door between this and another dimension and letting some malevolent entity to pass through. And it's now set its sights on Ben and Kelly. As spooky things progressively escalate in the house, the young couple tries to figure out what to do.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're into supernatural films along the lines of "Paranormal Activity."
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For terror/frightening images and some sensuality.

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!!!
