Movie News: "My Soul to Take" Gets a Halloween 2010 Release Date

Apparently it's Wes Craven week here in horror world.  Coming off the news that Scream 4 is ready to roll, Wes Craven's other project, My Soul to Take gets a release date for October 29, 2010.

This may not seem like a big deal compared to Scream 4, but this is Craven's first directorial and writing project since 1994's A New Nightmare.  That's a long time!

The official synopsis is:

"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."

The concept seems kinda meh, but it's Wes Craven, so I'll check it out and hope for the best.  The cast is mostly unknowns, so no fun cameos so far.  More to come.
