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.

I picked this movie because BF likes horror movies & this seemed to fit the bill

What I liked the Most? Bug's "moments" - Fang rocks!!!!

What I liked the Least? The lack of an actual story line - death leading to death is not a story

Review: Ok - granted this wasn't pure magic, but come on people, we watch movies to be entertained, and this was entertaining - it just wasn't scary like it was proclaimed to be. Now to be honest, after the freaking horrorific opening I really expected Wes Craven at his best because the opening segement was AWESOME. Flash forward 16 years and it almost seemed like everything got washed out. I would have liked to see more on the whole each of the 7 kids were an instant incarnation of Abel's soul.
