QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A demonologist must contend with supernatural and familial demons from her past as she returns to her childhood home for the first time in decades.
PLOT:
Elise Rainer (LIN SHAYE) is a woman with a gift (or curse) of being able to encounter ghost, demons and such. And that started when she was a young girl growing up in Five Keys, New Mexico with her younger brother, supportive mother, Audrey (TESSA FERRER), and abusive prison guard father, Gerald (JOSH STEWART), who tried to beat that ability out of her. It didn't work and, at the age of sixteen, she ran away for good, although she's used her gift ever since to help those bothered and burdened by paranormal entities.

Even so, she's taken aback when she receives a call from Ted Garza (KIRK ACEVEDO) who's moved into her childhood home and is being spooked by something inside. Knowing that she unleashed a demon there long ago that took the life of her mother, Elise initially plans to go there alone. But her intrepid duo of paranormal investigators, Specs (LEIGH WHANNELL) and Tucker (ANGUS SAMPSON), decide to tag along. Once back inside her former house, they encounter spooky things, and later Elise's now grown-up younger brother, Christian (BRUCE DAVISON), and his two young adult daughters, Imogen (CAITLIN GERARD) and Melissa (SPENCER LOCKE), in town.

Setting out to vanquish the various demons -- supernatural and familial -- from her past, Elise and her companions must contend with some surprising discoveries along the way.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They probably will if they're fans of the "Insidious" franchise or low-budget horror films in general.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For disturbing thematic content, violence and terror, 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.
