It's been a busy week for Wes Craven, first came news that he was officially onboard Scream 4, now there's news that his latest project My Soul to Take (formerly known as 25/8) has an official release date. If Craven lines up a few more gigs this week, he's going to give Guillermo Del Toro a challenge for the "busiest guy making genre films" title.

News of the release date broke last night, courtesy of Rogue Pictures' official Twitter Feed. "Mark your calendars - Wes Craven's My Soul to Take will hit theaters this Halloween on October 29th!"

Suddenly, after years of Saw dominance in late October, we're seeing horror films release in the late Halloween window. An October 29th release date puts Craven's film in direct competition with Kevin Greutert's Saw VIIand the Paranormal Activity sequel (providing they find a director and actually make that release window...). Pretty gutsy move on Rogue's part--but I like it.

My Soul to Take tells a spooky tale about the small town of Riverton. Legend has it that a serial killer vowed to return from the grave to kill the seven children born the night he died. Now, 16 years later, people in Riverton are going missing. Is the killer back from the dead or is there something else going on in this quiet town? Only one of the kids knows for sure.

Sounds almost Elm Street-esque, with the serial killer and revenge plot elements. Can this compete with Saw and PA2? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
