Horror: A skeptical NYPD cop and an unorthodox priest team together to combat what may be cases of demonic possessions occurring around them.
NYPD Sgt. Ralph Sarchie (ERIC BANA) has seen a lot during his beat patrolling rough neighborhoods in the South Bronx with his sarcastic cop partner Butler (JOEL McHALE). Married to Jen (OLIVIA MUNN) with whom he has a young daughter, Christina (LULU WILSON), Ralph pays more attention to work than them and has something of a sixth sense when it comes to receiving vibes about bad things.

That's recently included a few children being killed or put into harm's way, something that irritates Ralph to no end, and that somehow revolve around three former U.S. Marines, Jimmy (CHRIS COY), Mick Santino (SEAN HARRIS) and Lt. Griggs (SCOTT JOHNSEN), who served together in Iraq a few years earlier, encountered something there, and returned as changed men.

Unorthodox Jesuit priest Joe Mendoza (EDGAR RAMÍREZ) is sure all of that has something to do with demonic possession, especially when a woman he knows, Jane (OLIVIA HORTON), appears afflicted with just that. Yet, Ralph doesn't believe any of it, despite growing up as an altar boy.

But when he starts hearing things no one else does -- including static and children's voices on his police radio as well as old songs by The Doors -- he soon begins to believe that perhaps there is something otherworldly and even potentially dangerous behind the recent odd occurrences. He and Joe then team up to figure that out, all while Ralph's family ends up in danger from something supernatural lurking in their house.

If they're into horror films (particularly those revolving around possessions and such) and/or are fans of anyone in the cast, they might be interested.
For bloody violence, grisly images, terror throughout, and 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!!!
