QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A family must contend with three masked psychopaths who want to kill them in a deserted trailer park.
PLOT:
Kinsey (BAILEE MADISON) is anything but a happy teenager. For reasons never revealed, her parents -- Cindy (CHRISTINA HENDRICKS) and Mike (MARTIN HENDERSON) -- are sending her off to boarding school and she's about as mad as she can get. But with no real recourse, she sets out on a road trip for that school with them and her older brother, Luke (LEWIS PULLMAN). With plans to spend the night at an out of season trailer park run by the kids' aunt and uncle who they'll see the next day, the family settles in for the night.

Little do they know that a trio of psychopaths -- never identified in the film but listed in the credits as Dollface (EMMA BELLOMY), Man in the Mask (DAMIAN MAFFEI) and Pin-Up Girl (LEA ENSLIN) -- have already killed the older couple in another trailer and have now set their sights on these newcomers. From that point on, the family members try to avoid being killed by the strangers and hope to get help.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the original film (from 2008) or slasher-type horror films in general, they just might.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For horror violence and terror throughout, and for 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!!!
