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

Still Worth Watching If You Like Wes Craven Style
1 June 2017 | by (Over The Rainbow) – See all my reviews

If you don't give this movie a good 35-40 minute chance, you miss out on an interesting story with some good old fashion horror.

If you like the 80's and past Wes Craven films, (like I do)I bet you will enjoy this movie. It has definite nuances of both.

Admittedly there are some corny parts and some inconsistencies but the movie was still enjoyable. I LOVED the unexpected humor in it! And the twists and surprises.

With only a few exceptions the acting was very well done. The cinematography, editing, camera use, sound, score, and special effects were all professionally and adequately done. It was fun to see some familiar faces at the beginning of their career.

The story and pace does go at a slower pace then probably most horror fans appreciate,(it takes a good 30-35 minutes to really get rolling....then an hour before it starts coming together) but for me, it was perfect. There is a bit more bloody parts then Wes Cravens usual stuff, but it isn't used for shock, and the amount appropriate to sell the scene. There are also cussing (for those that are offended by that)

All in all this was a better horror film then I've seen in a long time. Maybe I'm getting to be old school, but much of the torture porn and shock gore and violence does not a horror movie make. I like jump scares, and creepy atmosphere and music and a slow burn.

This wasn't a supper GREAT movie...but it was still VERY well made and I enjoyed it. It was worth watching.
