Jeffrey Dean Morgan,
A horror-thriller centered on a woman living with "face-blindness" after surviving a serial killer's attack. As she lives with her condition, one in which facial features change each time she loses sight of them, the killer closes in.
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 Thieriot) was supposed to die on the last night the Riverton Ripper wrecked havoc on that terrifying night. Unaware of terrifying crimes being committed to the seven children, he has been plagued by nightmares of their murders while not aware if they hold true or if he is simply imagining the images that haunt him. 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. Written by
Wes Craven. He has his ups and his downs. Classics like Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, are hurt by Cursed and Vampire in Brooklyn. This is one of his terrible efforts. An absolute disaster considering he wrote and directed this 4th rate slasher. This man once dissected the genre, and here he conforms to it. He can't even do that competently. The murder scenes have all the tension of taking a dump. We get characters, awkwardly, backing up to one side of the frame. Alas, they bump into the killer. Every kill happens with a shot of feet, a shot of the weapon, pained reaction shot and finish. The whole world of this film is miserable. If Craven researched a single aspect of this film I would be surprised. High school kids don't act like any high school kids I've known. The police are incompetent, apart from being loaded with smarmy remarks. The paramedic would rather believe in voodoo crap than science etc. This is all dragged along by bland dialogue. When it gets to a point that shows Craven couldn't even bother look at the differences between schizophrenia and multiple-personality disorder, you just hope he brings his A game to Scream 4.
