I was hoping for someone to take my soul and just stomp on it a couple times for choosing to watch this film. I'm not really being over dramatic either, it was just that bad. Well, okay, I am being over dramatic, I'm sorry. I don't know what the hell Wes Craven is doing anymore. If I had watched this when it originally came out, I wouldn't have even bothered to see Scream 4. Wes Craven is more hit or miss than Tony Romo as a QB. There's good Wes (Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream, Last House on the Left) and then there's bad Wes (Cursed, Vampire in Brooklyn, and this abomination of a film).
The film starts when a serial killer dies. He swears that he will kill the seven kids that are born that night. DOOM AND GLOOM. I'm not even joking, that's the storyline. And then there's the chance that the serial killer's soul gets transported for lack of a better word into one of these seven kids as well. So we go through the film and people are dying (a staple in any horror film). We're left to assume it's this serial killer known as "The Riverton Ripper" doing it all. You can just tell the script was horrible and in turn the film was horrible. Don't judge Wes on this film alone because he did redeem himself with Scream 4 as far as I'm concerned.
Great Film: D
Enjoyable Film: C-
