Suspense/Thriller: Four strangers abduct a gay couple and their adopted daughter with the demand that they must sacrifice a family member to prevent the apocalypse from occurring.

Andrew (BEN ALDRIDGE) and Eric (JONATHAN GROFF) are just looking for a relaxing time at a cabin out in the middle of nowhere with their adopted seven-year-old daughter, Wen (KRISTIN CUI). But then four strangers arrive, break into the cabin, and take the family hostage. Yet, teacher Leonard (DAVE BAUTISTA), nurse Sabrina (NIKKI AMUKA-BIRD), gas company employee Redmond (RUPERT GRINT), and line cook Adriane (ABBY QUINN) claim they don't want to rob or do harm to them.

Instead -- and driven by common visions that have resulted in those four uniting and traveling to this particular cabin -- the quartet has an unusual demand. And that is that the family must choose one member among them to sacrifice and then go through with the killing to prevent worldwide Armageddon from occurring.

While Wen is terrified, Andrew and Eric believe the foursome are delusional or perhaps homophobic bigots out to get the gay couple. But Leonard and the others assure them they're not in either case, and that their dire warning and demands are indeed real. With members of that group taking extreme measures and TV news footage seemingly backing up their claims, the two men must decide what to do as things become ever more dire.

Fans of writer/director M. Night Shyamalan and his films will probably want to see it.

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!!!
