Wes Craven scared the $#@! out of us (and created a couple of iconic horror killers) in A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. But will he do it again with My Soul to Take? Can the Riverton Ripper compete with Freddy Krueger and Ghostface?

The Riverton Ripper was a serial killer who swore to return from beyond the grave to kill seven children who were born the night he died. Sixteen years later, with people disappearing again, the question is—is he somehow still alive? Or was he reincarnated as one of those seven teens?

We'll have to wait for the movie to find out the answer, but in the meantime, the trailer is pretty chilling.

What do you think? Will you check out Wes Craven's latest?

My Soul to Take is due to hit theaters Oct. 8.
