Horror: A woman invites teens to party in her basement, with them unaware of her ulterior motives.
Maggie (DIANE SILVERS) is a 16-year-old who's just moved with her single mother, Erica (JULIETTE LEWIS), back to the latter's hometown where she went to high school with the likes of Ben (LUKE EVANS) who runs a security company; his girlfriend Mercedes (MISSI PYLE); and the woman they humiliated back then -- Sue Ann (OCTAVIA SPENCER) -- who now works for Dr. Brooks (ALLISON JANNEY) as a veterinary assistant and has a sick teenage daughter, Genie (TANYELL WAIVERS), who spends most of her time at home.

Maggie ends up joining a small circle of friends that includes Haley (McKALEY MILLER), Chaz (GIANNI PAOLO), Darrell (DANTE BROWN) and Ben's son, Andy (COREY FOGELMANIS). They like to party and end up getting Maggie to ask strangers to buy liquor for them. Most say no, but Sue Ann decides to comply, saying she used to drink with friends at the same remote location. That eventually leads to Sue Ann holding teen parties at her house, segueing between being a mother hen type chaperone to a wild partygoer herself.

But as those parties continue, some of the teen friends begin to feel uncomfortable with the situation, all of which causes Sue Ann to become clingy and eventually reveal her true, ulterior motives.

Those into deranged killer type horror films might be interested, while the majority teen cast might draw in others.
For violent/disturbing material, language throughout, sexual content, and for teen drug and alcohol use.

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!!!
