Storyline

In the sleepy town of Riverton, legend tells of a serial killer who swore he would return to murder the seven children born the night he died. Now, 16 years later, people are disappearing again. Has the psychopath been reincarnated as one of the seven teens, or did he survive the night he was left for dead? Only one of the kids knows the answer. Adam "Bug" Heller (Max Thieriot) was supposed to die on the last night the Riverton Ripper wrecked havoc on that terrifying night. Unaware of terrifying crimes being committed to the seven children, he has been plagued by nightmares of their murders while not aware if they hold true or if he is simply imagining the images that haunt him. But if Bug hopes to save his friends from the monster that's returned, he must face an evil that won't rest...until it finishes the job it began the day he was born. Written by Anonymous

Entertaining movie.
12 February 2011 | by MrAlfaSee all my reviews

Overall a good entertainment movie. A very promising start, which makes you want to continue the vision, expecting a sequel just as good. Even if it remembers the usual teen movie, the film seems to grow in other directions. It is not a horror movie but a thriller that also manages to give moments of suspense and keeps you glued to the screen. Unfortunately, you soon begin to understand who is guilty, despite a feeble attempt to move the viewer's suspicions and their hope that it is not. The film begins to lose consistency gradually approaching the final, awful and predictable, which finally ruined what could have been a great film of its kind. Considering the garbage around, I'd give the film a discrete vote and six stars. I will put seven so that the overall evaluation can grow: in my opinion it is too low at the moment.
