Horror/Black Comedy: Told she must play a random game to follow the tradition of marrying into a wealthy family, a young bride must contend with them wanting to kill her when she finds herself in a deadly version of Hide and Seek.
After eighteen months of dating, Grace (SAMARA WEAVING) is marrying Alex Le Domas (MARK O'BRIEN), a young man who's been estranged from his family that built its immense fortune via board games. But as tradition would have it, the wedding must take place at the family estate where most of the members -- who are only now meeting Grace -- talk about her behind her back and question whether she's just a gold-digger. There's the head of the family, Tony (HENRY CZERNY), and his wife, Becky (ANDIE MacDOWELL), the latter of whom is one of the few who seems to like the new bride.

Also present are Alex's brother, Daniel (ADAM BRODY), who acts like he doesn't want to be there, and his wife, Charity (ELYSE LEVESQUE). Drugged up sibling Emilie (MELANIE SCROFANO) is there with her husband, Fitch (KRISTIAN BRUUN), while Aunt Helene (NICKY GUADAGNI) glares at Grace like she wants to kill her.

She gets her chance at just that when Grace is informed that family tradition dictates that she must play a randomly chosen game at midnight, something that seems benign at first. But when she ends up getting Hide and Seek, little does she know that their hunt for her will be literal -- as in they intend to find and maim her so that they can sacrifice her before dawn the next morning. She's shocked when she realizes what's occurring and that Alex knowingly invited her there, but he says he didn't know that's the game she'd select and that if he didn't marry her there, he'd be killed.

From that point on, he does what he can to try to get her out of the manor that's now been locked down by butler Stevens (JOHN RALSTON), all while the various family members come after her with murderous intent, forcing her to fight back.

Teens into outrageous horror flicks might show some interest.
For violence, bloody images, language throughout, and some drug 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!!!
