Goddamnit, Wes Craven. Whose throat do I have to cut to get a good movie out of you? You’re one of the legends of the horror genre — up there with Romero and Argento and Raimi and Carpenter. And when’s the last time you made a good horror movie? When’s the last time you made a good movie, period?

I swear to God, if any of you says Music Of The Heart I will stuff spiders in your mouth, sew it shut, and set you on fire.

Anyway. Here’s the trailer for Craven’s newest film, My Soul To Take. The title sucks, the actors look like CW cast-offs, it features some garbage nu-metal track, and it looks like it’s cobbled together from the parts of a dozen other new millennium teenage horror flicks. Oh, and it’s in 3-fucking-D. Can you tell I’m excited?

There are a couple of upsides — it’s rated R, so at least it won’t be watered down junk like Prom Night. Shareeka Epps (Half Nelson) is in it, and I’m always happy to see that she’s getting work. There seems to be some actually interesting/creepy imagery scattered amongst all the derivative dialogue and uninspired jump scares.

No. I refuse to get my hopes up, because I keep getting burned when that happens. Anyway, watch the goddamn trailer, and then mumble your useless blatherings in the comments.

Oh, and it’s one of those annoying Yahoo trailers which inexplicably auto repeats itself.
