My Penny of View : Sarah was a nine months pregnant lady and she was watching a news about Riverton Ripper has killed seven persons. A security TV has recorded the process Ripper was killing a girl and identified his weapon was a pocket knife with the word "vengeance" marked on the blade. Sarah's husband, Abel found the knife underneath the stairs but he can't remember killing anyone. He has Dissociative Identity Disorder and he hid it from his wife. He called his doctor that he was losing himself again. The doctor immediately called police and went to Abel's house. Abel went back to the room to check his wife but found out that he has stabbed his wife till dead. Later, he attacked his daughter, Leah. Luckily the police and doctor arrived in time to take down Abel but they were attacked by Abel again. While on the way to hospital, Abel attacked another officer and the ambulance crashed into the woods. Everyone able to escape before the ambulance exploded. Abel also managed to escape. On the same night, seven babies including Abel's baby were born. 16 years later, they were known as Riverton Seven-Brandon, Brittany, Alex, Penelope, Adam 'Bug', Jerome and Jay, and they were having ritual to keep the Ripper away. They were safe for 15 years but on their 16th birthday, weird things happened continuously. It started with Jay's death. Who kill Jay? Is it mean Ripper has return?

I didn't watch the trailer and read the synopsis. I only know the director-Wes Craven who is best known as creator of horror movies. So, I'm kinda looking for some thrilling scenes that make me sleepless. The movie was all about devil, Dissociative Identity Disorder and killings. It tries to explain logically to audiences about what was happening which I think is not necessary. It did successfully make me terrified in a few scenes. It should be credited to the good sound effects. Can't complain much on the acting because all they need was screaming technique. As conclusion, after few unexpected horror scenes, it was a boring movie. This movie will be shown in 3D in US. Seems like Wes Craven only try to fulfill the 3D effects.
