QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A small group of people enter supposedly haunted woods in hopes of finding one man's sister who mysteriously disappeared years ago.
PLOT:
Back when he was four-years-old, James (JAMES ALLEN McCUNE) had to deal with his older sister mysteriously disappearing somewhere in the Black Hills woods near Burkittsville, Maryland. She and two other student filmmakers were there to film a documentary about a local legend known as the Blair Witch. They were never found, but their footage of scary encounters with something seemingly supernatural was. Now, new footage has been found including a brief glimpse of a figure in a dilapidated house in those same woods.

James is certain it's his sister and thus heads there to look for her. Accompanying him is his friend, Lisa (CALLIE HERNANDEZ), who's going to document his search; his childhood friend Peter (BRANDON SCOTT) who doesn't believe anything about the legend; and his girlfriend, Ashley (CORBIN REID). They meet a local couple, Lane (WES ROBINSON) and Talia (VALORIE CURRY), who reportedly found and posted that new footage, and those two want to tag along in exchange for showing James where they found the tape.

The six then enter the woods and set up camp for the night, only to have spooky things happen. From then on, James and the others must contend with an increasing amount of scary and possibly supernatural stuff occurring to them.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?

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.
