QUICK TAKE:
Suspense/Thriller: A young woman must contend with alligator attacks while trapped inside a flooded house with her injured dad during a raging hurricane.
PLOT:
Haley Keller (KAYA SCODELARIO) is a student at the University of Florida in Gainesville where she's a competitive swimmer, having once been coached by her dad, Dave (BARRY PEPPER), until he and her mom split up, and Haley hasn't seen him in a while. But when her sister, Beth (MORFYDD CLARK), calls to say she's worried about their dad in that he's not answering his phone with a dangerous hurricane on the way, Haley decides to drive the two hours to where he lives.

When she gets to his condo, she only finds his dog, and thus figures he must have gone to their old home that's now for sale. She finds his truck outside and eventually finds him unconscious and wounded down in the crawl space. She also discovers the source of his injuries -- a large alligator that's entered the space via a broken grate over a storm pipe. She manages to drag him to a safe spot the gator can't access, but then realizes that not only is there more than one alligator, but also that flooding rains are starting to fill the crawl space with the potential for that to worsen severely should nearby levees break.

Now trapped in the crawl space with her dad, Haley must figure out how to avoid the gators and somehow save both her dad and herself.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're into movies about characters having to contend with attacks by wild animals or are fans of anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For bloody creature violence, and brief 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!!!
