Comedy: In this spoof of recent horror movies, a young couple care for three orphaned children brought in from the wild to a home fitted with a myriad of security cameras and haunted by an evil spirit.
Jody (ASHLEY TISDALE) and Dan (SIMON REX) are a young married couple who come to care for the three kids of Dan's recently deceased brother. While the baby is normal, the two young daughters, Kathy (GRACIE WHITTON) and Lily (AVA KOLKER), have been living in a cabin in the woods with an evil entity they refer to as "Mama," and are quite creepy and wild.

Fearing for their safety, Dan and Jody wire the house with multiple cameras to help determine if they are being haunted by the same force. Their housekeeper, Maria (LIDIA PORTO), decides to take matters into her own hands to defeat the entity, slaughtering a chicken and investing heavily in crosses.

Meanwhile, Jody decides to resume her dream career as a ballerina and vies with a rival ballet dancer named Kendra (ERICA ASH) and runs afoul of an older dancer named Heather (MOLLY SHANNON) who she has replaced as the lead in a production of "Swan Lake." For his part, Dan continues to thrive in his career as a scientist researching apes and their intelligence.

Due to the PG-13 rating and the movies it is spoofing, teens may have some interest.
For crude and sexual content throughout, language, some drug material, partial nudity, comic violence and gore.

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!!!
