My Soul to Take is a 2010 horror film created by Wes Craven, and it was the first movie project since 1994 where he took the role as the director. The film deals with a serial killer whose multiple personalities manifest in the next generation of a town where his killing spree took place. The film begins with a man with multiple personalities going on a spree of killings in a small town. The killer in question has seven personalities, only one of which, the Riverton Ripper, is committing all of the murders. Though eventually killed after he'd brought death to the town, the various personalities of Abel Plenkov flew out into the night and made their homes in seven different babies which are all born prematurely. These children live their lives and make it to young adulthood, but on the night that they all turn 16, the Riverton Ripper manifests and begins killing all of the vessels containing the surviving personalities. In the end it comes down to Adam "Bug" Hellermen and his friend Alex. Though Bug has been the one that's become the chief suspect throughout the evening's messy killings (which included 5 teens as well as several adults, including the police officer who originally investigated the case of the Riverton Ripper), it turns out that his friend Alex has been the Ripper this entire time. Adam kills Alex, ending the latest crimes of the reborn Ripper, and then faces the town with blood still wet on his hands. Adam's sister saw and heard everything, though, and the town treats Adam like a hero for putting a brutal end to a vicious killer. Adam, the only remaining personality that once belonged to Abel Plenkov, survives and moves on into the wider world.
