Up Coming Screamers: My Soul To Take

Now before I get to the horrific preview I just want to say that I am back to updating Mindset a little more regularly. I've been dealing with some personal horrors of my own that would turn any one's hair white.

OK... On with the show.

Click the poster to go to the film's IMDb page.

Wes Craven returns to the sub-genre that made him very wealthy, the teen-scream slasher film.
Something feels very familiar here, like I've seen this before. Here's the trailer. See if you also feel a bit of the ol' De Ja Vue...

I'm sensing a really strong Nightmare on Elm Street vibe. What's worse it's not even a decent Nightmare vibe. It's like Nightmare part 2... The killer's soul is in one of you! Oooooooooh.

Maybe I'm being a little harsh or maybe I've just be jaded with the crap Hollywood is trying to pass off as horror. Who's to say? This may be worth watching. After all, Wes Craven is the master of supernatural killers who hunt down innocent teens that really had nothing to do with the killer's demise.

But did he have to make the Slasher look like Hagrid?
