    Dull, talk-heavy snoozer that most closely resembles something that would show up on the CW network. show more

    The picture is directed with such a loose, slack hand that you'd think Craven had never directed a slasher-thriller before: I didn't jump once; I never even felt vaguely scared or creeped out. show more

    I watched at least a quarter of My Soul to Take, the worst horror movie Wes Craven's made perhaps ever, with the glasses off. It was shot - and is available - in a standard format, and, like many conversions, the 3-D gimmick is like watching a movie through an ashtray. show more

    This waking nightmare from the "Nightmare on Elm Street" creator is a puzzle with no solutions, a tale with a twist that isn't a twist at all. show more

    There are plenty of formulaic boo! moments, yet Craven intelligently treats Bug's otherworldly issues like hormonal growing pains that must be tamed. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    This utterly mediocre forget-me-now could've been crafted by any faceless serial director at all. The shame of it is that the man behind the camera is Wes Craven when, by all rights, it should have been Alan Smithee. show more

    Wes Craven's first new movie in five years is a brainless, joyless, and yes, you might even say, soulless teen slasher. show more

    A thoroughly dreary, by-the-numbers exercise. show more

    All might be good for a flask-to-the-theater laugh, if not for the unconscionable price gouging. show more

    I think it may be time for Wes Craven to hang it up; this movie is a waste of time and not worth seeing...horrible!!!

    You would expect a much better film from such an experienced and well known director. It was not only hard to follow, and boring, the acting was very sketchy. Not the least bit scary. There was not a good scene in the entire movie. Didn't make a whole lot of sense, being based on 16 year old children.

    Yet one more movie that is advertised with scenes that are not even in the movie. In the trailer you see on TV you see a hand come out of the wall and grab a guys face this never happens in the movie. This is a very disappointing film for being written and directed by Wes Craven. The film attempts to have some twists to the story like scream and fails miserably. The acting is bad, the 3D is a waste of money and the movie just straight lags at points. From a scale of 1-10 this movie gets a 4 definitely SKIP THIS FILM

    Wes Craven is back directing after a stint from "New Nightmare" as he repurchase a not-so dilemma for 3-D only. "My Soul To Take" is another miscalculated failure for Halloween freak shows. I'm definitely out.
