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.

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."

I Can't Believe Wes Craven Made This Garbage
Despite numerous warnings to avoid this film, I shelled out my money,
including the ridiculous $3 extra for 3D glasses, figuring, it's Wes
Craven, how bad can it be? Well, the answer is, extremely, horribly,
atrociously bad. MSTT made Shocker look like Citizen Kane. I've seen
better efforts at the After Dark Horrorfests and coming from The Asylum
MSTT had a script and dialog of the level of some
fresh-out-of-some-two-bit-drama-school reject, not of a nearly 40-year
veteran of filmmaking. Half the dialog made no sense whatsoever, and
the emotions of the actors was usually misplaced.
While the story had promise, the execution failed completely. At first,
the action seemed forced to get to the central elements Craven was
looking for, then the resolution bogged down in complete incoherence.
Craven can't blame some one else's script or studio insistence on cuts,
'cause this atrocity was all his. If this is the best he can do, he
should retire. He's proved he has nothing left to add to horror.
And if my negative comments still don't dissuade you from seeing this
atrocity, make sure you at least seek out 2D instead of the extra money
for 3D, because...
THERE WAS NO Discernible 3D IN THE FILM WHATSOEVER!!!! Scenes which
should have popped out of the screen, such as the ambulance crash,
DIDN'T! It's quite obvious the studio realized what a piece of crap
MSTT was and how it would plummet in ticket sales once work of mouth
got out, so they did post-filming 3D conversion to bilk the poor
suckers who went to see it opening weekend out of a few dollars more.
The only reason I didn't rate this a 1 is because, sadly, I have seen
worse. But this one should be avoided at all costs.
