Horror, Thriller
My Soul to Take focuses on a kid named Bug (Max Thieriot) whose father, Abel (Raúl Esparza), was a serial killer with multiple personalities known as the Riverton Ripper. Seventeen years after Abel’s disappearance and supposed death, Bug begins to display the effects of multiple personality disorder—and the seven kids who were born the night the Ripper disappeared begin to die brutally. This movie is yet another attempt by Wes Craven to make a horror film about an evil soul that finds its way into an innocent person’s body and forces them to kill. The movies in which he’s used this plot device, most notably Shocker, have been horrible … and this film is no exception. Craven tries to make things more Scream-like by adding a whodunit twist, and the studio tries to liven things up by tacking on some worthless 3-D, but these ploys fail miserably. If the film had been as unintentionally humorous as Shocker, it may have been worthwhile, but the acting is so bad, the dialogue is so stilted and the 3-D is so worthless that the viewer can’t help but be bored.

Boise Weekly The Projector: Movies opening Friday, Oct. 8 Ryan Reynolds buried alive (tragic!); Zach Galifianakis and Keir Gilchrist tell a funny story (kind of); Wes Craven makes you pray (and scream); a race (horse) against the odds; accidental parents (who are as cute as the baby they are now responsible for); Philip Seymour Hoffman's fear of water (and women) and a couple of very special screenings. It's all at the movies. 10/08/2010
