Consensus: Dull, joyless, and formulaic, My Soul to Take suggests writer/director Wes Craven ended his five-year filmmaking hiatus too soon.

J. R. Jones
Chicago Reader

There's some malarkey about each kid having inherited one of the maniac's personalities, though Craven never does much with that except to point the finger of suspicion at junior.

What sinks it is Craven's simplistic, ham-fisted writing and inert direction.

What [Wes Craven] wound up with was a witless stab-the-teen time-waster that could be his worst film ever. And considering 2005's wretched Cursed, that's pretty bad.

A thrill-free snooze that will certainly rank as one of the least -- if not the least -- effective entries in Craven's nearly 40-year canon of cinematic shockers.

The worst horror movie Wes Craven's made perhaps ever.

Ben Kendrick

Places too much time in the hands of disposable characters - so that it is neither a brainless slasher flick nor an immersive character piece based in a serial massacre.

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

A puzzle with no solutions, a tale with a twist that isn't a twist at all.

Jeff Beck

"My Soul to Take" is one of the most banal horror films I've seen in the past few years, which makes it surprising that it comes from the mind of horror master Wes Craven, who gave birth to the legendary horror icon Freddy Krueger.

Oh wow not many people really liked this? Maybe they expect more from a horror legend like Wes Craven. For a straight to DVD horror/slasher it was ok. It has an… More

Wes Craven is a horror genius, but what the hell was he thinking when making this shit. The plot of this was too boring and stupid to explain, the story… More
