Places too much time in the hands of disposable characters - so that it is neither a brainless slasher flick nor an immersive character piece based in a serial massacre.

"My Soul to Take" is one of the most banal horror films I've seen in the past few years, which makes it surprising that it comes from the mind of horror master Wes Craven, who gave birth to the legendary horror icon Freddy Krueger.

A single-serving package of adrenaline that wears off quickly.

Hands down the worst horror movie of the year, and certainly the worst of Wes Craven's career.

A puzzle with no solutions, a tale with a twist that isn't a twist at all.

So utterly awful that it should have been renamed 'My Time to Waste.'

Clunky bird metaphors, blind kids grabbing for dangling ropes, a Horshack-ian best friend with an abusive stepfather, and a story that would be impossible if any of these kids drove a car, sum up most of the more obvious problems with the film.

A thoroughly dreary, by-the-numbers exercise.

From a newcomer, the ineptitude of this film could be understood; from a man like Wes Craven, it feels like a big fat cheat.

Easily the worst movie of Craven's career and not even remotely scary or creepy or any of the things you expect from a good horror movie.

The filmmaker's red herrings prove depressingly incapable of hiding the real fiend's identity.

Might not be Wes Craven's best film, but it's certainly his worst.

What sinks it is Craven's simplistic, ham-fisted writing and inert direction.

This film quickly moves to the top of the list of 'Most Purposeless Use of 3D' beating out 'The Last Airbender' and 'Clash of the Titans' with ease.

Only someone so smart could make a movie this stupid.

the most awful kind of entertainment exploitation in that everything is set up to abuse the audience, not the characters

The problem with My Soul to Take isn't in its concept, it's in the execution. It's overly complex and nearly impossible to explain with images, which is why the slasher turns into a visual table read in the final act.

Wes Craven's first new movie in five years is a brainless, joyless, and yes, you might even say, soulless teen slasher.

The work of a lunatic using his own feces to outline an uncomfortably abstract tale of ridiculous possession, brought to life through some of the most excruciatingly obvious and colossally stilted dialogue I?ve heard so far this year.

Craven's writing starts out over the top and just keeps climbing ...
