Horror: Various college friends travel to a lakeside cottage but must contend with deranged locals and the man-eating sharks they've unleashed into the water.
Louisiana college football star Malik (SINQUA WALLS) is so excited about the good grades that he got with help from his tutor, Nick (DUSTIN MILLIGAN), that he informs him and that pre-med student's roommate, Gordon (JOEL DAVID MOORE), that he's taking them on a little vacation to the lakeside cottage owned by the parents of his college friend Sara (SARA PAXTON). Joining them is Malik's girlfriend, Maya (ALYSSA DIAZ); art class model Blake (CHRIS ZYLKA); and Sara's far wilder friend, Beth (KATHARINE McPHEE), who thinks Sara and Nick should hook up.

After a run-in with Sara's ex-boyfriend, Dennis (CHRIS CARMACK), and his redneck buddy, Red (JOSHUA LEONARD), the college students arrive on the remote Lake Crosby island where Sara's longtime acquaintance, Sheriff Sabin (DONAL LOGUE), welcomes them and tells them to have a good time. But that bliss doesn't last long as Malik is attacked by a shark in the large saltwater lake and loses an arm. Desperate for help, Sara, Nick and Maya try to boat him off to the closest hospital, but another shark attack derails their efforts, returning most of them to the cottage.

From that point on, the college students must not only contend with what turns out to be multiple sharks in the water, but also the deranged locals who've stocked the lake with them.

If they're into movies about sharks or horror flicks where young people are hunted down by some sort of killer, and/or might be fans of someone in the cast, they could be interested.

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!!!
