Before Wes Craven returned to the Scream franchise to direct a fourth installment, he assembled the likewise teen-centric My Soul to Take, his first feature since 2005’s Red Eye. Universal has released the first trailer, and it works as a nice atmospheric tease for the horror film, centered around the legend of a serial killer who swore to murder the seven children born the night he died — “Now, 16 years later, people are disappearing again.” Max Thieriot, John Magaro, Emily Meade, Nick Lashaway, and Denzel Whitaker star. Check out the trailer, new images and the poster after the jump.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 was supposed to die on the bloody night his father went insane. Unaware of his dad’s terrifying crimes, he has been plagued by nightmares since he was a baby. 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.
