My Soul to Take Review


A serial killer returns to his hometown to stalk seven children who share the same birthday as the date he was allegedly put to rest.

My Soul to Take (2010) is a 1h 47-min American supernatural horror mystery film that was shot in Danbury, Connecticut, USA; New Milford, Connecticut, USA and Tolland, Connecticut, USA. Director and writer Wes Craven (Scream (1996), A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987), New Nightmare (1994), A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984),) failed miserably at executing this awful film. I am not sure what Wes was thinking about while writing this boring dreadful script that is a cliche to a lot of horror movies out there except for the 3D part which I am not sure why 3D was needed. The film contains sexual jokes/reference, extreme violence, gore, bad language, no suspense, no thrills and no tension.

My Soul to Take revolves around a serial killer who returned to the town where he supposedly drowned 16 years ago so that he can kill seven children that were born on the day he died. One of the seven kids is Bug (Max Thieriot - Jumper (2008), House at the End of the Street (2012), Bates Motel (2013-2017), Chloe (2009)) who was born on the evening that the Riverton Ripper supposedly died. The Riverton Ripper carves his work with a particular type of knife. The kids are at a sixteen birthday party when they start dying one by one, and they are not sure who the killer is until it was a little too late.

Pros (average and above) from the movie: Cinematography, music, ending credits and the actors giving us decent performances from the terrible script they had to work with. Negatives: screenplay/script, directing, special effects, 3D, sets and no camera angles. I would not recommend anyone to see this movie even if it was showing on TV and you had nothing else to do because the news is, even more, entertaining than this film.
