Synopsis: 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.
Review: This honestly has to be one of the worst movies I’ve ever had the displeasure of sitting through. If I had seen “My Soul to Take” prior to releasing my “Worst of 2010” list, it would have easily knocked “The Wolfman” out of the #1 spot for God-awful film of the year. I cannot even begin to describe how much of a train wreck this film is; it honestly should have been called “My Time to Take” because at a nearly two hour run time, you can bet I was feeling a little bit like my time had been robbed. This may actually be the first zero rating I give to a horror film here on Fresh Cuts, but at least I have finally found a film that is terrible in every way imaginable, allowing me to take a short break from finger-pointing every single problem inherent in a film ad nauseum.
