Yahoo has released the trailer for Wes Craven’s new film My Soul to Take. It’s been five years since Craven last stepped in the director’s chair and directed the critically acclaimed thriller Red Eye. This film finds Craven back in his mileau of high school horror films. I think the trailer looks really good and it definitely looks like old school Craven. Craven is due for a Sam Raimi like revival, ala Drag me to Hell, however as I say that, I realize that he never really went anywhere. Most of his recent films with the exception of Cursed, a Weinstein debacle, have been very good.
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 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.
