My Soul to Take (Movie opens Oct. 8)

It’s October, so you know what that means. It’s time to see a new horror flick. This month’s scary movie opens Friday, Oct. 8 and it comes to you from Wes Craven, the writer/director who brought us such horror classics as Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. Craven’s latest slasher film is My Soul to Take, a story about a serial killer with multiple personalities who swore he would return to murder the seven children born on the very night he died. The killer’s soul may have been transferred to one of the seven kids, but if so which one?

Marking his first original full-length screenplay since 1994’s New Nightmare, the suspense thriller showcases Craven’s uncanny ability to terrify with twisted stories that still hit close to home. The master of horror reminds us that the most frightening monsters among us are human… and sometimes have a face as familiar as our own.

My Soul to Take, in 3-D, offers more of a psychological thriller than many of Craven’s other creations. For the film, he imagined a tale of unimaginable tragedy and disturbing violence that kept him awake at night. The movie is sure to live up to Craven’s works that tend to share a common exploration of the nature of reality. It should be a pretty good film.
