QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A family discovers an old video camera that allows them to see a ghostly apparition haunting their new house, and they quickly discover that the demon is stalking their 8-year-old daughter.
PLOT:
Ryan (CHRIS J. MURRAY) and Emily (BRIT SHAW) are a young married couple who move into a beautiful new home in Santa Rosa, Calif., with their cute 8-year-old daughter, Leila (IVY GEORGE). Christmas is coming up, and they've invited Emily's yoga-instructor sister, Skyler (OLIVIA TAYLOR DUDLEY) and Ryan's recently jilted brother, Mike (DAN GILL), to spend the holidays with them.

Soon, though, all five start to realize they may not be alone in the house. Ryan finds an old video camera left from the people who owned the property years earlier. He turns it on and starts filming and starts to see various distortions in the lens. He also discovers a box full of old videotapes of a mother, father, and two sisters who lived in the house in the late '80s and early '90s. As the girls age in the tapes, Ryan starts to notice the parents are nowhere to be found and that another lady who the girls call "mother" now lives with them along with a possible cult leader.

Before long, Leila starts to exhibit odd behavior and strange things begin happening around the house. The old video camera shows a possibly malevolent entity stalking the little girl. Ryan and Emily call in a Catholic priest, Father Todd (MICHAEL KRAWIC), but it may already be too late.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens may have some interest, especially those who have seen any of the other "Paranormal Activity" movies.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For language and some horror violence.

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!!!
