A notorious serial killer uses his dying breath to place a deadly curse on a small town in this shocker from legendary horror director Wes Craven (Scream, A Nightmare on Elm Street). It's been 16 years since the maniac who terrorized Riverton met his grim demise. Seven children were born on the night he died, and he vowed that he would return one day to claim them all. Like clockwork, exactly 16 years later, the children born that fateful night begin vanishing without a trace. Could the killer have somehow cheated death the night that everyone thought he was killed, or has he perhaps been reincarnated as one of seven teens he swore to kill? Only one person knows the answer to that burning question. Adam "Bug" Heller (Max Thieriot) never knew how close he came to death the night his father went on that bloody rampage, and despite remaining completely unaware of the atrocities that mar his family bloodline, he's suffered terrifying nightmares from as far back as he can remember. Now, in order to save his friends, Bug will be forced to confront the evil that won't stop until it accomplishes the awful task it set out to complete on the night he was born.~Jason Buchanan

Feature Commentary with Director Wes Craven and Cast Members
This was a good movie. To be frank, it isn't in the same caliber as "Scream"; Those expecting this movie to be like "Scream" should understand that this is essentially a supernatural B version of that movie and that it contains no superstars. Although this movie follows the same formula as "Scream", the story is a hybrid of other horror films. In-spite of the negative reviews, this movie did fulfill my expectations for a horror film. It is entertaining, creative, suspenseful, well developed, and decently acted. There is limited gore/horror. I would classify this as more of a suspenseful slasher/thriller. The characters are decently developed and the ending is wrapped up in one neat bow. Could they have made the movie better? Of course! Did they need to? No. In short, this is definitely worth a rental.
