Family-Faith Film Review: My Soul to Take 3-D
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Instantly disposable, old-school horror offering from writer-director Wes Craven (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”) has seven Massachusetts teens stalked by a knife-wielding serial killer who allegedly died 16 years earlier on the night they were all born. One of the youths (Max Thieriot) is most likely to have inherited the murderous mantle and be the next bogeyman. Craven knows how to frighten audiences using low-tech means. That doesn’t mean anyone need take notice of the unsavory result, especially in the superfluous 3-D format. Numerous acts of bloody violence, including a suicide and multiple stabbings and slashings; pervasive rough language and profanity; disrespectful attitudes toward religion and prayer; and a number of sexual references and banter involving teenagers. O – morally offensive (R) 2010
