QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A college student tries to solve the mystery of her ending up reliving the exact same day over and over again where she ends up being murdered at the end each time.
PLOT:
Tree Gelbman (JESSICA ROTHE) is a college student at a Louisiana university who's known as a promiscuous party girl. That lifestyle has resulted in her waking up in the dorm room of another student, Carter Davis (ISRAEL BROUSSARD), who she figures she must have drunkenly had sex with. Hung-over, she returns to her sorority house where she's confronted by the head of her sorority, Danielle (RACHEL MATTHEWS), and blows off the birthday wishes from her roommate, Lori (RUBY MODINE), before rushing off to class with her married professor, Gregory (CHARLES AITKEN), with whom she's having an affair. At the end of the day, while walking alone, she's confronted by a person wearing a mask fashioned after the school mascot and ends up murdered by them.

She then jolts awake in Carter's dorm room again, and is confused by all of the same meaningless events seemingly happening again in order. When she encounters the masked figure that night, she tries to get away but once again is murdered, only to wake up in Carter's dorm room yet another time. From that point on, and as that same day keeps repeating itself, Tree tries to figure out what's happening, who the killer is, and how to survive to the next day.

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!!!
