Horror: A young archaeologist leads a team of treasure hunters into the Paris catacombs and they soon find themselves in the presence of true evil.
Scarlett (PERDITA WEEKS) is a young archaeologist who is still reeling from the suicide of her father. Devoted to his memory, she takes it upon herself to complete his long-held quest to find the Philosopher's Stone, a fabled rock that has the power to transform base metals into gold. Her research takes her to the catacombs of Paris -- a 200-mile labyrinth of tunnels beneath the City of Lights where an estimated six million corpses were buried over the centuries.

She puts together a team for this expedition, promising them each untold treasures. There is George (BEN FELDMAN), a translator of ancient languages and her former flame; Benji (EDWIN HODGE), a documentary filmmaker eager to chronicle Scarlett's quest; Papillon (FRANCOIS CIVIL), a mercenary guide who knows all of the hidden ways to get into the catacombs and as deep as possible; his girlfriend, Souxie (MARION LAMBERT); and expert climber, Zed (ALI MARHYAR).

As they soon discover, though, the deeper they go into the catacombs, the more their lives fall into peril. Dark secrets from each of their pasts start to physically manifest themselves. George, for instance, sees a piano that reminds him of his little brother, who drowned to death years earlier as he rushed to help him. Scarlett is beckoned by a mysterious ringing phone, the same one she didn't answer the night her father tried to call her before hanging himself. They all soon learn that there is no turning back. Their only choice to continue to moving forward and deeper and deeper down.

Older teens will definitely be drawn in by the young cast and horror-thriller elements.
For bloody violence, terror, and language throughout.

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!!!
