My Soul to Take (2010)

An American horror written and directed by Wes Craven.
A mass-murderer is lost on a night when many children are born at the nearby hospital. One of them grows up with mental issues and things come to a head on his 16th birthday.
Most horror films feature a buildup style that follows the plot as horror is revealed. This one had a slightly different plot curve with an exciting beginning and ending, but a moderate middle section. The characters were so stereotypical that it hurt to watch. The camera-work followed the plot curve, but in reverse. Underexposed moving shots were used in the beginning and ending to make it crappy and stable, correct exposures made the middle more watchable. I liked the condor biology class scene the most, followed by the girls' bathroom scene. There was also a good hallway scene of the 2 friends mimicking each other. Overall, it was lackluster with a few good points. I rate it adequate.
