Horror: Guests at a tropical resort find their fantasies twisted in horrific ways.

There exists an island somewhere in the tropics where guests pay money to have their fantasies brought to life by the owner of the resort, Mr. Roarke (MICHAEL PEŅA); his assistant, Julia (PARISA FITZ-HENLEY); and a small staff. Among the latest guests is Gwen Olsen (MAGGIE Q) who wants a fresh start in life due to two major regrets from her past. Cop Patrick Sullivan (AUSTIN STOWELL) always dreamed of being a military man like his late father, Lieutenant Sullivan (MIKE VOGEL), and thus would like to serve for a short while.

Having been bullied in school by Sloane Maddison (PORTIA DOUBLEDAY), Melanie Cole (LUCY HALE) would like to get revenge on her. And simply looking for party-based fun, step-brothers JD Weaver (RYAN HANSEN) and Brax Weaver (JIMMY O. YANG) are just looking for a good, randy time with others.

Observing them is a private investigator, Damon (MICHAEL ROOKER), who's been stuck on the island for a while after having initially tried to figure out how Roarke makes such fantasies come true. And it's not long before the newcomers learn that there's truth to their host informing them that fantasies usually don't work out as desired.

That includes Gwen suddenly finding herself as a wife and mother; Patrick running into his father; JD and Brax having their fun interrupted by gun-toting, masked intruders; and Melanie ending up having to save Sloane from a sadistic torturer, Dr. Torture (IAN ROBERTS), who wants to do her harm.

The Blumhouse horror angle might draw in some who are fans of their low-budget horror movies.
For violence, terror, drug content, suggestive material and brief strong 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!!!
