QUICK TAKE:
Horror: Five young men and women assemble at a remote cabin in the woods and inadvertently unleash demonic forces.
PLOT:
Mia (JANE LEVY) has a serious cocaine addiction that developed when she was caring for her late, mentally ill mother. She has agreed to allow her estranged brother, David (SHILOH FERNANDEZ), and three friends to stage an intervention at her remote family cabin in the woods. The three friends include Eric (LOU TAYLOR PUCCI), a young English professor; Olivia (JESSICA LUCAS), a registered nurse eager to help her through the painful withdraw effects; and Natalie (ELIZABETH BLACKMORE), David's girlfriend.

Underneath the floor of the cabin, they find a burned-out cellar where dead cats hang from the ceiling and a mysterious book sits untouched from the blaze that once engulfed the room. It's encased in plastic and bound with wire. Everything about it says, "Don't read me." Eric, curious from an academic standpoint, takes it to his room and promptly cracks it open. In doing so, he unleashes a demonic spirit that possesses Mia.

At first, they think her extreme behavior is the result of her drug addiction. Soon, though, Eric realizes that an evil has indeed been summoned - one that will kill them all if they do not do the unthinkable. And that is kill Mia.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens may be drawn to the film as it is already gaining a reputation for its gore and frights.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language.

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!!!
