My Soul To Take, directed by Wes Craven, is not exactly a new movie (okay so maybe I lied when I said I'd be reviewing new things). It cam out nearly a year ago. And even though most other reviews only gave it a C rating, I definitely feel that it is worth watching a time or two.
Craven fans beware, however. This movie did not really remind me of your average Wes Craven film! And where some people may say that is because he has lost his touch, I merely say that he is experimenting with his style in order to appeal to a new and extremely different generation than his past movies were devoted to.
Overall, My Soul To Take was not such a bad movie; sure, there could have been more convincing special effects (blood-wise) and there were a few akward moments between the characters (but as that stupid Twilight movie proves, akward actors seem to be all the rage these days), but it was sometimes creepy, a little scary, and slightly funny at the most appropriate times.
