Horror: A couple must contend with the possibility that the reincarnated soul of a serial killer might be inside their eight-year-old son's body.
For Sarah (TAYLOR SCHILLING) and John Bloom (PETER MOONEY), they've gotten used to their 8-year-old son, Miles (JACKSON ROBERT SCOTT), being intellectually advanced for his age. But when he starts acts oddly at night -- including speaking in a foreign language in his sleep -- and then attacks a classmate with a large plumber's wrench, they enlist the aid of child psychologist Elaine Strasser (PAULA BOUDREAU) to find out what's wrong. And with the help of specialist Arthur Jacobson (COLM FEORE), an unsettling possibility arises -- that Miles might have a reincarnated soul sharing his body and wanting to return to resolve some unfinished business.

Little do they initially realize that it's that of serial killer Edward Scarka (PAUL FAUTEUX) who was shot dead almost at the same time as Miles was born, all due to one of his victims, Margaret St. James (BRITTANY ALLEN), managing to escape. As Sarah and John initially dismiss and then try to come to grips with the fact that their son might be battling a reincarnated soul that wants control of his body, they must contend with the dangers that Miles presents to them and others.

They might if they're into possession-based horror films.
For violence, disturbing and bloody images, a sexual reference and brief graphic nudity.

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!!!
