On his twitter page Wes Craven just announced the title of his newest film, which will be My Soul To Take.
Long known under the working title of 25/8, it’s somewhat amusing how many filmmakers are using Twitter to get news out to their fans.
The synopsis for the film-
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 (Max Thierot) 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.
So, a serial killer seeking vengeance after his death? Teenagers being menaced? A kid having bad nightmares? Nah, couldn’t be…
Look, I love Wes Craven as much as the next guy but for every Serpent and the Rainbow he gives us we also get a Cursed. This will be Craven’s first feature film since 2005’s Red Eye, so we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on what it looks like.
On an unrelated note, if you want a good laugh today listen to a good friend of mine telling Wes Craven about the awakening of his sexual being at the NY Comic Con-
