Craven’s Stand By Me (With A Knife)

MTV News got the comprehensive word on My Soul To Take straight from Wes Craven – from its origins through shooting and to post – how the 3D post-conversion process was designed to enhance the story.

MTV: It seems like the trailer does a great job of setting up the story without spoiling anything.

Craven: It’s a great trailer. We were very happy. I kept saying it’s kind of “Stand by Me” with a knife. It’s not really a grisly gore-fest in any way. It’s as much a family story and coming-of-age story as anything else, but it does have murders in it and it does take place among 16-year-olds, so it does fall into that genre. But I really tried to reinvent that genre by doing something that had a humanistic story to it and kind of a psychological and even spiritual story to it, so depending on how you look at it, it’s either a story about personality or about souls.

Scream gets a mention as a comparison point how a sequel could function…

MTV: Is this a standalone film, or is there potential for sequels?

Craven: I would say that I certainly did not design it to be that, but it does have an element to it that actually could make it as easily a franchise as the “Scream” franchise, where you have different killers in each film. The central character, I think, would be very interesting to follow through a few more films, but it depends on how the film does.
