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

Trivia

The title 'My Soul to Take' was taken from the children's prayer: "Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take, which is also used in Wes Craven's earlier film 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'. See more »

Goofs

During the case (between Brandon and Brittany) there is a shot that shows blood on the back of Brittany's coat. This isn't possible, because she has never been attacked. See more »

Quotes

Incredibly Original and Underrated
7 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to see this film with minimal expectations. I like Wes Craven but have found some of his films to be a little lame, also the trailer didn't really catch me with this one so I didn't really know what to expect.

Not only did this movie surprise me but it really just shocked me at how original it was. It was unlike any slasher film I have ever watched. Little things here and there really separate this from other bland slasher flicks.

It sucks that this movie gets so much hate, some people just don't like change I guess. People cry over how all horror films are the same yet when they gets something which is extremely cool and different like this they complain.

Not for everyone I guess but still one of my favorite Wes Craven films of all time. A blast to watch.
