January 6, 2007
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.
June 24, 2006
The tedious storytelling sucks the life and soul out of the characters far more effectively than Satan ever manages.
March 22, 2002
[An] unholy mess of a flick.

With the original Exorcist back at the multiplex, you don't need this pale copy.

Odd camera angles, artfully dim lighting and showy tracking shots simply don't make up for suspense or intelligence.
January 1, 2000
Despite its spooky, color-desaturated visuals, guffaws, not screams, are more in order.
January 1, 2000
While it's beautifully shot, it's way too slow. And it isn't one bit scary.

January 1, 2000
Feels like a film student's awkward homage to Polanski's Rosemary's Baby.
January 1, 2000
Its characters are so colorless and uninvolving that it's hard to take them seriously.

January 1, 2000
Far from being frightening or brutal or harrowing, as an exorcism thriller ought to be, it's silly, undone by lack of faith in its own subject.

January 1, 2000
Confusing, flatlined script.
January 1, 2000
This muddled, shamelessly derivative mess should have been ticketed straight to video.
January 1, 2000
This generically promotable but heavy-handed pic should look forward to a quick and relatively painless transition to the video shelf.
January 1, 2000
Yet another mostly unscary, occasionally comical Exorcist knockoff.
January 1, 2000
The barely relieved boredom is, apparently, an attempt to contradict David Byrne's contention that only 'Heaven is a place where nothing really happens.'

A pretty dreary affair to sit through. It's not even scary.

January 1, 2000
Lost Souls doesn't even give us a good exorcism.
January 1, 2000
For a thriller about demonic possession and the birth of the antichrist, it's curiously flat.

January 1, 2000
Muddled, relentlessly derivative and uninvolving except as a visually superb image roll.
January 1, 2000
Kaminski and Gardner spend so much time dealing with Good and Evil that they seem to forget all about the far more important distinction between Good and Lousy.
January 1, 2000
Sets a new standard for woebegone vacuousness in the millennial thriller subgenre.
January 1, 2000
The movie concludes with what may be the most anti-climactic Antichrist showdown in the history of devil dramas.
January 1, 2000
There are some inadvertently hilarious occurrences and some abominable acting.
January 1, 2000
On those occasions when the movie makes sense, the implications are often so idiotic that we wish it didn't.

January 1, 2000
Kaminski brings all the visual oomph one could ask for, but not enough narrative spine, momentum, or substance.
January 1, 2000
This tale of ultimate evil is a maddeningly inert drama.
January 1, 2000
Yet another story about the devil taking over the world, the film starts out strongly, but quickly loses its way in the morass of its own hocus-pocus.
