Horror/Thriller: A mother and her teenage daughter move next door to a house that was the site of a double murder years earlier, and they learn that one of the family members still lives there.
Sarah (ELISABETH SHUE), a newly divorced mother, looks to make a fresh start with her teenage daughter, Elissa (JENNIFER WARREN), in small-town Pennsylvania. She rents a large house on a wooded lot that she would never be able to afford if it weren't for the fact that a mother and father were bludgeoned to death in the house next door years earlier. Even more chilling, the murders were committed by their brain-damaged daughter, Carrie Anne (EVA LINK), who drowned soon after.

Sarah and Elissa were told the stigmatized house was vacant, but they soon learn that one member of the tragic family still lives there. It's the dead couple's college-age son, Ryan (MAX THIERIOT), who has become the town outcast in the year since his parents' murders. Whenever he does show his face around town, he is usually bullied by high-school jock Tyler (NOLAN GERARD FUNK) and his friends.

As a result, Ryan likes to keep to himself in that house, but is soon attracted to outsider Elissa. Not long after, though, we learn that all is not as it seems in Ryan's house. And what is really going on will eventually put the lives of Elissa, Sarah, and friendly local police officer Bill (GIL BELLOWS) in mortal jeopardy.

Yes, especially teenagers. The film features a youth-friendly PG-13 rating and stars Jennifer Lawrence of the immensely popular "Hunger Games."
For intense sequences of violence and terror, thematic elements, language, some teen partying, and brief drug material.

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!!!
