| annoying kids and scattered story telling
Abel Plenkov (Raul Esparza) suffers from mental illness and he turns into the serial killer Riverton Ripper who kills with his blade engraved with vengeance. He attacks his family and causes the ambulance to crash. He's assumed to be dead. Exactly 16 years later, the local teens have gathered. Local legend dictates that the Ripper could rise on the anniversary and one of the seven kids born on that day have to drive Ripper back into the river. The seven are blind Jerome (Denzel Whitaker), smart-mouthed Alex Dunkelman (John Magaro), Jay (Jeremy Chu), timid Bug (Max Thieriot), religious Penelope (Zena Grey) who predicts the coming evil, Brittany (Paulina Olszynski) whom Bug has a crush on, and brute jock Brandon (Nick Lashaway). Some believe that the Ripper is still alive and then the killings start. Fang (Emily Meade) is mean girls queen bee and turns out to be something more for Bug.

The story telling is too scattered especially in the first half. Bug is the lead and he needs to be in 90% of the movie. All the kids are annoying in some way. The horror story is lifeless. The villain isn't fearsome. The kills aren't gruesome enough. Nothing really stands out. The Fang reveal is pretty good but I never got invested in the characters. Their survival and even their deaths aren't compelling to me.
