This movie will definitely not help out Wes's career. Decent storyline, but not great although it does get boring halfway through. The acting to me was just average and blah and I didn't really like any of the characters. At least in the Scream movies you go really into their lives, and that just wasn't the case for this. Not to give anything away but the title didn't really fit the movie. A serial killer returns to kill seven high school kids who were born the day he was supposedly killed by the police. There isn't much explanation or logic for the killer's return save for a chance for seven unappealing, one-dimensional young actors to interact with each other. Call it a Wes Craven slasher remix of a John Hughes movie. Max Thieriot, who resembles a young Ethan Hawke, is the nominal star of this mess. He plays "Bug" the troubled teen with multiple personalities, visions and the distinct possibility of being a killer himself. (Trivia alert: Bug was also the name of the creepy boy in John Hugh's Uncle Buck.) Bug has his nerdie best friend, Alex (John Magaro) and of course, a huge crush on the pretty, pouty blonde cheerleader, Brittany (Paulina Olszynski). As the bodies start dropping around the school, fingers are pointing at Bug. What a shame that Craven seems to have run out of creative juices. My Soul To Take has a cast with no chemistry, a story with no coherence and it's basically a horror movie with no bite. Craven's classic Nightmare on Elm Street movies played on the boogie man that haunts all dreams, the SCREAM series was amusingly self-aware of its own slasher genre formula. So, My Soul To Take feels like Craven tepidly trying something outside of his tried and true franchises and coming up empty.
