Storyline

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 Anonymous

Better than common horror, plenty to think about, very enjoyable!
6 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. I can't understand why so many of the reviews are negative. I ended up wondering, what movie was everyone else watching?

People are saying it was confusing and hard to follow. It wasn't at all. It was a great mystery with several possibilities, which were all great fun to think about as the movie went on. When the end came up, all was made clear. You just have to have been using your brain through this movie to get it.

Then there are also those who say "it's a ripoff of Nightmare on Elm St", and I think, "um, what?" These are the sort of people who say that any movie with a killer animal of any kind is a ripoff of Jaws. Sure, in the endless world of horror certain themes can only be done so many times, but reviews like that are pretty much the same as saying that all horror movies are just copies of all other horror movies.

Perhaps one just has to have an interest in souls, mythologies, and pondering possibilities to enjoy this movie. I am a fan of horror all around, I've seen so many and such a range I couldn't begin to get into it. I've seen plenty of mindless slashers (including the enjoyable ones), and more than plenty of crap story lines I wish I hadn't. This was not one of those, and I liked it.

The acting was good, especially Max Thieriot as Bug. I thought the twists and turns with Bug were fascinating. They gave the option to question whether or not people around him were real, or in his head. Yes, they were real, but it was one of the interesting possibilities I considered.

Overall, the movie was very enjoyable.
