QUICK TAKE:
Action/Fantasy: A medieval knight tries to train his new apprentice in the ways of battling and killing supernatural beings, all while the queen witch aims to become more powerful with the arrival of the blood moon.
PLOT:
Long ago in medieval times, one thousand knights defended humanity from witches and other supernatural beings. But now only one such knight -- a.k.a. a "spook" -- exists and that's Master Gregory (JEFF BRIDGES) a grizzled veteran who long ago believed he had locked away the most powerful witch, Mother Malkin (JULIANNE MOORE), for good. But she managed to escape, and with the upcoming once-a-century blood moon soon to arrive, she's poised to get her revenge on him and the rest of the world.

She does manage to kill his latest apprentice, William (KIT HARINGTON), before returning to her mountain lair, thus necessitating his need for a new assistant. He arrives at the home of Tom Ward (BEN BARNES), a young pig farmer who lives with his mom (OLIVIA WILLIAMS), father and siblings, and has recurring visions of fantastical things he doesn't understand. Gregory is looking for the seventh son of a seventh son, and that would be Tom. With his mother giving him a prized amulet to help protect him, Tom rides off with Gregory and is given a crash course in all things supernatural.

Little does he know that Mother Malkin's fellow witch sister, Bony Lizzie (ANTJE TRAUE), has sent her teenage witch daughter, Alice (ALICIA VIKANDER), to spy on them. Or that Mother Malkin is assembling a powerful group of supernatural beings, including Radu (DJIMON HOUNSOU), Urag (JASON SCOTT LEE) and Sarikin (KANDYSE McCLURE), to reign terror across the world. With the blood moon arriving soon, Gregory does what he can to teach Tom the tricks of the trade, with the help of his loyal monster helper, Tusk, all while worrying about his young apprentice falling in love with Alice.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're into fantasy type films featuring supernatural beings and such. Otherwise, if they're not a fan of someone in the cast, it doesn't seem too likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For intense fantasy violence and action throughout, frightening images and brief strong 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!!!
