25/8 Plot Officially Explained

Wes Craven!Last month Max Thieriot shared some plot details about Wes Craven's 2009 horror flick 25/8. What Max shared left some of us more confused than before about exactly what Craven was getting us into, but luckily Universal released the official synopsis today to help clear things up...

"In the sleepy town of Riverton, legend tells of a serial killer who swore he would return to murder the seven children born the night he died. Now, 16 years later, people are disappearing again. Has the psychopath been reincarnated as one of the seven teens, or did he survive the night he was left for dead? Only one of the kids knows the answer.

Adam "Bug" Heller (Max Thierot) was supposed to die on the bloody night his father went insane. Unaware of his dad’s terrifying crimes, he has been plagued by nightmares since he was a baby. But if Bug hopes to save his friends from the monster that’s returned, he must face an evil that won’t rest…until it finishes the job it began the day he was born."

This plot outline is so insulated to the 7 teens, that once you know that, it's not scary anymore, no suprises, all 6 of the 7 are going to die in a contrived series of silly ways. Yawn. I'm sure the "serial killer" will be all one liners and over-the-top. Sounds like an Elm Street throw away plot to me.
