As you may know, Wes Craven is currently in the process of shooting the highly anticipated Scream 4, but before he started production on that film, he was putting the finishing touches on a new original horror flick called My Soul to Take. It looks like it could be the start of a new horror franchise, depending on how successful it is. The story revolves around the Riverton Ripper, a killer in a small town who returns to stalk seven teenagers who were all born on the same day he was killed.
The last two movies that Craven directed were Red Eye and Cursed back in 2005… one of those movies was fairly well-received, while the other one wasn’t. This does feel like a return to the teen slasher flicks of the ’90s, which bodes well for Scream 4. Unfortunately, most of the film’s atmosphere flies out the window once that lame nu-metal song kicks in towards the end. The movie stars Max Thieriot, Emily Meade, Zena Grey, and Denzel Whitaker, and it hits theatres on October 8th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
