Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Hills Have Eyes, Scream series) brings audiences his latest suspense thriller with My Soul to Take. In the sleepy town of Riverton, legend tells of a serial killer who swore he would return to murder the seven children born the night he died. Now, 16 years later, people are disappearing again. Has the psychopath been reincarnated as one of the seven teens, or did he survive the night he was left for dead? Only one of the kids knows the answer. Adam "Bug" Heller (Max Thieriot) was supposed to die on the bloody night his father went insane. Unaware of his dad's terrifying crimes, he has been plagued by nightmares since he was a baby. But if Bug hopes to save his friends from the monster that's returned, he must face an evil that won't rest...until it finishes the job it began the day he was born.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
A thoroughly dreary, by-the-numbers exercise.Mike Hale, New York Times, 10.08.2010
Wes Craven's first new movie in five years is a brainless, joyless, and yes, you might even say, soulless teen slasher.Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly, 10.08.2010
This dumb, derivative teen slasher movie would be uninspiring coming from any writer-director, let alone one with several genre classics under his belt.Dennis Harvey, Variety, 10.08.2010
A thrill-free snooze that will certainly rank as one of the least -- if not the least -- effective entries in Craven's nearly 40-year canon of cinematic shockers.Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 10.15.2010
