QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A young woman hires two young exorcists to determine if her locked-away mother is mentally ill or demonically possessed.
PLOT:
It's 2009 and Isabella Rossi (FERNANDA ANDRADE) is a young woman who has traveled to Rome with documentary filmmaker Michael (IONUT GRAMA) to determine if her locked-away mother, Maria (SUZAN CROWLEY), is mentally ill or demonically possessed. Ten years ago, she murdered two priests and a nun who were trying to perform an exorcism on her. The Vatican has refused to do anything with Maria and thus she's heavily sedated in a nearby mental hospital. Isabella goes to meet her there, but the woman acts in such a way that makes her daughter seek out some experts in the field.

She manages to get exorcist Ben (SIMON QUARTERMAN) and ordained priest David (EVAN HELMUTH) to look into her case as they try to help out people the Church won't in such regards. With the discovery that Maria might be possessed by multiple demons -- a hazardous condition as sometimes they'll jump into other people -- the duo set out to free the woman from her demonic entrapment, all while Isabella worries and Michael captures everything on multiple video cameras.

    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.
