QUICK TAKE:
Horror: Following their mother's suicide, two siblings find themselves snowed in at a remote home with their father's new girlfriend who they don't like.
PLOT:

It's been six months since their mom, Laura Hall (ALICIA SILVERSTONE), committed suicide and her kids, Aiden (JAEDEN MARTELL) and Mia (LIA McHUGH), still really haven't forgiven their father, Richard (RICHARD ARMITAGE). After all, his announcement to Laura that he wanted their divorce finalized so that he could propose to his new girlfriend, Grace Marshall (RILEY KEOUGH), is what pushed their mother over the edge.

Now that time has passed, Richard proposes that they have Grace join them for a Christmas vacation at their remote house, something that doesn't sit well with Aiden and Mia. That not only stems from the tragedy, but also that Grace was the lone survivor of a cult-based mass suicide in the past led by her father, and the kids don't feel safe around her. Nonetheless, Richard wins out, but once they get to the nearly snowed-in house, he's called away for work, with Grace assuring him she'll be fine with the kids.

But once Richard has left and heavy snows set in, strange things start happening in the house that bring back memories of her fateful last day in the cult while also making her question her sanity and existence.

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!!!
