    The film belongs to a long tradition of horror films that offensively suggest that all atheists might as well hang a Welcome sign up for the devil.

    Along with Moore, all of them deserve some kind of credit for committing to a movie barely six souls will ever even see.

    An appealing cast and well-executed mood of foreboding would seem to hold some promise commercially, but the script grows silly in the third act, letting the picture down.

    Ultimately, the silly material overwhelms the style, particularly in a final act involving magical hillbillies living in them thar hills — during which the movie attempts to make a serious point about the importance of faith in the midst of a lot of bad teeth, worse wigs and cheap jolts. Right.

    Is it a psychological thriller or a giddy horror of the evil-in-them-there-hills persuasion? This split-personality number can't quite decide.

    A schlock supernatural shocker.

    The filmmakers’ aversion to coherent narrative and genuinely suspenseful visuals (not to mention a penchant for having Ms. Moore receive terrible news via cellphone) keep the movie’s mystery stew from hitting the spot.

    A preposterous supernatural thriller that inexplicably managed to sign up Julianne Moore to star.

    Blame who you must, but whatever went wrong with 6 Souls, God had nothing to do with it.

    6 Souls is regrettably sick with that familiar disease afflicting movies of this ilk: ostentatious, hollow moodiness that spreads like an unwelcome rash.

    I was very disappointed by this film because it was started with an idea very original but the two directors have failed to use well, and for this the film has collapsed like a house of cards. One thing positive of the film were the actors that they dealt with the great and the moments of suspense. Full Review »
