    i was looking forward deeply to this film, until, yepp until i saw the big slap in the face 3D wes craven has something that is not realized in HollyWood much, TALENT and its being scrunched up into a ball into a bin, with a sign called 3D conversion.
    This film is very reminicent of the original Nightmare On Elmstreet except not in the scale of pure originality

    I think this will be a descent movie, I dont expect it to top the box office or earn alot of money. But who knows, it is a Wes Craven film.

    It's undisputed that Wes Craven is a master of horror. The man has been scaring audiences since 1972 with classics like The Last House on the Left, The Hills Have Eyes, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Scream.

    My Soul To Take, will be arriving in theaters in early October, but from the look of it, it doesn't appear to be up to snuff.

    ODD! Looks like Wes Craven just did a "Retread" on "A Nightmare on Elm Street".......... Still for Wes's name I will see it ...but not in 3-D ...

    ...Sad that Wes Craven fell into the 3-D gimmick market just to sell one of his films ..... !!! Wes is now a Hollywood sell-out1

    Oh, no doubt about it, @moviegeek151. But I also believe that a man with his genius could add a few wrinkles to the way technology is used today.

    @ejk1 I think the fact that Hitchc*ck doesn't use special effects makes him all the more impressive! If he were working today, he might fly under the radar. The black and white, GLORIOUS black and white, is part of the greatness. The music, the framing, and the setup make the scares!

    I'd see this...Always fun to see a teenager suddenly grow a pair and fight something supernatural that can easily kill him and win, classic

    @moviegeek and @daveactor7, agreed about Hitchc*ck. Rear Window is my favorite of his films, and would add the scene where Jimmy Stewart is awaiting Raymond Burr as one of the most suspenseful moments in film history. But then again, you add moments from Susp*cion, Rebecca, Shadow of a Doubt, etc. IMO, Hitch is without a doubt the greatest director of all-time(imagine if he could work with today's technology), and what I love most is how he uses every minute in his movies effectively, with resolutions usually coming in the last seconds.

    I think this film has a bit more to it than appears. Who knows, could be good. I will give it a shot.

    Looks good. yes has all the cliches of horror, teens, serial killer, but everyone of romeros dead films have many of the same plots and social commentary elements as well. I will see this, might suprise many of us, that craven still has it in him, hell sam raimi's drag me to hell, was not the best movie, but was good enough with the humor mixed with the horror... raimi's trademarks, and it was nice to see him back in the genre.

    @moviegeek @daveactor7 LOVE Hitchc*ck! To me he'll always be the master of SUSPENSE! Cuz through suspense he could just as easily scare the sh*t out of you if you had been watching a horror film just the same. The man knew the craft of filmmaking, and knew how to use it to entertain just as well as get reactions. I think the most well known quote from Alfred was when he was asked "Why do you think people like frightening movies?" and Alfred said "What's the first thing you do when you see a baby...you go 'Boo!'.

    @Dave Haven't seen that one. It's on my list now though! I think Vertigo is his masterpiece. Love North By Northwest too. Psycho sits between those.

    @moviegeek yes it is my fave, my second is "the man who knew too much" and the ending when the doctor is explaining everything was the most haunting and psychological line in history.

    @Dave Oh its easily the end scene. Easily the scariest bit. Is that your favorite Hitchc*ck?

    @moviegeek the stairway scene when the detective is coming up the stairs and mother jumping out was the scariest scene in the movie next to the shadowy figure of mother moving towards the shower curtain
