Stop-Motion Animated Comedy/Horror: A troubled young teen hopes that two demons can resurrect her dead parents.

Kat Elliot (voice of LYRIC ROSS) is a 13-year-old girl whose world was upended five years ago when a single-vehicle accident claimed the lives of her parents, Wilma (voice of GABRIELLE DENNIS) and Delroy (voice of GARY GATEWOOD). Feeling responsible for that, she ended up becoming a juvenile delinquent and is now getting maybe one last shot at redemption back in her old hometown.

While Rust Bank was once a thriving place, it's now a dilapidated shell of its former self back when Kat's parents ran the local brewery that mysteriously burned down after their tragic deaths. Now, a private prison company known as Klax Korp -- run by Irmgard (voice of MAXINE PEAKE) and Lane Klaxon (voice of DAVID HARDWOOD) -- wants to tear the town down and replace it with a prison, thus potentially threatening the closure of the local Catholic school run by Father Bests (voice of JAMES HONG) where Kat is now enrolled.

There, a trio of girls -- Siobhan (voice of TAMARA SMART), Sweetie (voice of RAMONA YOUNG), and Sloane (voice of SEEMA VIRDI) -- want to add Kat to their clique, but she doesn't want any friends, although she at least tolerates Raul (voice of SAM ZELAYA) who she views as something of a kindred spirit. Little does Kat know, though, is that she's a so-called "Hell maiden" who's been targeted by demons Wendell (voice of KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY) & Wild (voice of JORDAN PEELE) who are hair farmers for underworld leader Buffalo Belzer (voice of VING RHAMES).

The demons desire to open a fair up in the world of the living, and knowing that Kat is the only person who can summon them, they agree to resurrect her parents if she agrees to do so. At the same time, Sister Helley (voice of ANGELA BASSETT) -- who knows a thing or two about demons, what with similarly being a Hell maiden who's helped school janitor Manberg (voice of IGAL NAOR) add demons to his growing collection -- tries to help Kat deal with that and come to terms with her past and related guilt.

If they're into macabre stop-motion animated offerings (like "Coraline" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas"), they might be interested.
For some thematic material, violence, substance use, 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!!!
