Lost Souls (2000)
Critic Consensus: Though Kaminski's film is visually stylish, Lost Souls is just another derivative entry in the Apocalypse genre, with lackluster direction, unengaging characters, and no scares.

Critic Reviews for Lost Souls
No excerpt available.
Alas, look is everything here and storytelling and characters are next to nothing, so what emerges is oddly ineffectual and uninvolving -- visually striking set pieces set loose in a void.
The tedious storytelling sucks the life and soul out of the characters far more effectively than Satan ever manages.
With the original Exorcist back at the multiplex, you don't need this pale copy.
The barely relieved boredom is, apparently, an attempt to contradict David Byrne's contention that only 'Heaven is a place where nothing really happens.'
Audience Reviews for Lost Souls
Lost Souls is a dark and suspenseful thriller that explores the battle between spiritual forces. The story follows an exorcist who attempts to save a man who has been mark to be Satan's vessel, so that he can take human form. Winona Ryder and Ben Chaplin lead the cast and give solid performances. The film is very stylized and atmospheric, which helps it to maintain an air of suspense and a sense of foreboding. And while the material is fairly derivative, it does have some dark turns and twists that give the story some additional intrigue and edginess. Though it does have flaws, Lost Souls is a hauntingly chilling supernatural thriller.
A pretty interesting film. Not the greatest flick out there, but still a little entertaining with a few scares.
This unholy spawn of The Exorcist out of Rosemary's Baby is dreary going indeed, even when it becomes unintentionally hilarious.
