Its really not that badBy shorleyK (5 reviews) from Taunton , 13 Apr 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]This Film Deserves a positive review
It has some holes, but none that detract from the story in anyway that would make it incoherent. I found this film pretty good and engaging (if not a little rushed once the slashees begin to meet their fate.)
There are plenty of red herrings along the way, enough to keep me guessing and reguessing... til more or less the end.
When Craven is writing, you're always going to get more that the standard hack and slash film, there is so much more going on within the Story, just seems that there wasn't room for everything at once.
Maybe take a step back, enjoy the mystery rather than the (surprising) lack of gore.....
Its not 'A Nightmare on Elm St' (1984) but its still better than most of the mindless 'horror' flicks about these days....

Pooer Wes he has lost itBy open (368 reviews) , 27 May 2013Not scary, not interesting and a shameful Wes Craven film. Its a typical slasher 1 by 1 murder type film but the teens were utterly annoying and you wanted them all to die FAST! 2/5
Take 'My Soul to Take' Away...now.By Davidd (75 reviews) from South London , 19 Sep 2012For every NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and SCREAM, Wes Craven gives us a DEADLY FRIEND and, er, VAMPIRE IN BROOKLYN. MY SOUL TO TAKE is definitely in the latter category. Competently put together but utterly pointless, this really only works as a teen slasher for an audience who haven't yet seen the many better films that inspired it (although the teen audience won't get access to it because of the - unjustified - 18 cert).
Really poor effort shot in a flat made for TV style that wrings every last drop of potential atmosphere out of the thing.
My advice - avoid.
soul searchingBy a customer , 29 Aug 2012End to end action from start to finish kept me interested from start to finish with a twist. at the end
Poor FilmBy Wendyj (6 reviews) from Motherwell , 30 Jul 2012My soul to take !!!! Dont really understand why this was rated an 18. Talk about a slow start a slow film more like it I was sooo disapointed this was totally crap turned off after an hour couldnt take anymore ! Poor Film but thats just my opinion.
For a Wes Craven.. very disappointing!By a customer , 17 Jun 2012Very disappointing for a Wes Craven film, I expected a lot more with it being one of his. Sadly it has very little plot and a storyline which is very poor. Don't waste your time with this.
