The trailer for My Soul to Take has dropped, a new Wes Craven movie about high schoolers being terrorized by a thing and/or person.
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. Only one of the kids knows the answer. Adam “Bug” Heller was supposed to die on the bloody night his father went insane.
Ugh, Bug. Even the nicknames are cliché. I saw a test screening of this film over a year and half ago back when it was called 25/8, a title that made even less sense than the premise, and I was not yet a blogger but a mere civilian. All I can say without breaking some sort of review embargo is WHOA, and I rarely use that term in a positive way. It’s like an episode of “Are You Afraid of the Dark,” but trying to be for adults who have experienced life and don’t crap their pants at just anything.
