Nearly everyone panned Wes Craven's new My
Soul To Take, so if you want to restore your faith in the
director, or you just want to get the crap scared out of you, take another look

Doomed to be battered to inanity by recurrent sequels, the original remains a
horror classic, and you can see it at the Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard
St, Brookline | October 22-23 @ midnight | $9 | 617.734.2500 or
