Movie Info

After the death of her husband, Dr. Cara Harding's (Julianne Moore) faith in God has been shaken, but not her belief in science. In an attempt to open her up to accepting unexplainable psychiatric theories, her father introduces her to Adam, a patient with multiple personalities who takes on some of the physical characteristics of his other personalities. Cara quickly discovers that Adam's other personalities are murder victims and the more she finds out about him and his past, the closer she

Psychology-themed horror tale goes a little nutty in the end.

Beginning as a psychiatric freak show, "6 Souls" eventually trades serial-killer intimations for backwoods bad mojo before becoming just another dimly lighted pop-up-stalker flick.

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

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

What unholy spirit could have possessed Julianne Moore when she signed on for the sort of throwaway horror flick that would normally star unknowns and go straight to DVD?

The end credits, which seem almost as long as the movie itself, dementedly thank everyone from the citizens of Pennsylvania to William Wyler, Howard Hawks and God. What an insult.

6 Souls is as boring as they come. It's a horror mystery with not a single second of suspense and a batch of uninteresting and naturally boring performances.

Julianne Moore cashes in a small segment of her reputation in the starring role of this overwrought psychological thriller.

June 12, 2013 Full Review Source:

If not for the presence of the extraordinary Moore, it wouldn't be worthy of any attention at all.

A wretchedly unwatchable train wreck of a film that sorely misuses its talented cast.

(T)here is a nice sense of dread here, a level of suspense that slowly dissipates as the movie meanders toward the exhausting end of its one hour and forty five minute run time.

April 6, 2013 Full Review Source: PopMatters

Convention-straddled to a significant fault, 6 Souls is however notable for its performances and for sticking to its creepy, contained formula, far more at least than most recent horror films.

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.

Tired and cliche ridden, yet watchable due to its stars Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers.

A psychological thriller/cum horror tale about a dangerous fellow with three personalities, a movie that proves Robert Louis Stevenson right: two are fine, more's a crowd.

February 27, 2013 Full Review Source: Compuserve

The conflicting speeds of the feature create chaos, derailing a familiar but promising junk food thriller, which tries much too hard to keep the viewer off the scent of a mystery they will likely show limited interest in to begin with.

January 5, 2012 Full Review Source:

All too often [the film] borrows from the ideas and conventions of the pysch-horror without giving either them, or the audience, enough respect for it to work.

As it is, it's an adequate Saturday night scare, but little more.

Audience Reviews for 6 Souls

Pretty creepy. Johathan really makes this movie....he is a darn good actor in my book. The story has holes, and some unanswered questions. But, I am givings it "props" for the supernatural effects. They were quite outstanding!

The film really surprised me. Not only did this movie creep me out, but it had my complete attention the whole way through. I made the mistake of watching this film alone in complete darkness. The film gave me goosebumps. I haven't really seen a good creepy thriller in quite some time. I can't really go into the movie too much without giving things away. But I will say it is one to watch. The acting is great, especially from Jonathan Rhys Meyers. He became all these people and made the character even more believable. I was all ready for it to give me an "its all OK ending", but lets just say it was even better. Great thriller that will really put the fear of not believing in God into you.

Predicted rating: 3.5

Started well and ended well, but it lost a little interest in the middle, despite good performances from both Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

The Multiple Personality/Psychological input was much more intriging than the possession route it took.

If you can give your logic a rest for a while, you're most certainly bound to enjoy this movie. There are just a few plot-holes than what we get to see in an average movie. I found the movie thoroughly interesting; it succeeded in keeping me on the edge of my seat (just a figure of speech, I don't mean it literally) from the beginning credits to the ending.

While Julianne Moore plays the role of Cara incredibly, the actor playing Adam/ David/Wesley's character isn't too convincing and the actor playing Cara's father's role also seemed a bit too lame. The rest of the cast delivers relatively good performances.

I'd certainly recommend this movie because it's way better than what we get to see in the movies of this genre these days around.
