Sci-Fi/Superhero: Infected by an alien parasite that can control and change the physical attributes of his body and speaks to him inside his mind, a down-on-his-luck reporter must contend with a serial killer who ends up with the same condition.

Eddie Brock (TOM HARDY) is an investigative reporter who works in San Francisco and has just learned that his former fiancée, lawyer Anne Weying (MICHELLE WILLIAMS), is now engaged to Dr. Dan Lewis (REID SCOTT). Eddie is shaken by this development, while the alien parasite inside him known as Venom -- that can not only alter his physical shape but also talks to him inside his head -- is angry and wouldn't mind eating Dan, what with his appetite for humans.

Things become more complicated when serial killer Cletus Kasaday (WOODY HARRELSON) wants Eddie to write his life story but in doing so secretly gets a message to his locked away, mutant girlfriend, Frances Barrison (NAOMIE HARRIS), who can emit destructively loud screams. While interviewing Cletus, Venom emerges and attacks the man who then bites Eddie, thus getting part of Venom inside him. His alien alter-ego, Carnage, then emerges and allows Cletus to escape and free Frances.

As they go on a rampage of revenge and destruction and as Det. Mulligan (STEPHEN GRAHAM) tries to figure out what's going on, Eddie must contend with his rocky relationship with Venom and the new danger presented by Carnage.

If they're fans of the first film or are die-hard comic book movie fans in general, they probably will.
For intense sequences of violence and action, some strong language, disturbing material, and suggestive references.

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!!!
