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.

A patchwork, conventional, and oft-told story that's a whole lot sillier than was probably intended.

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.

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.

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.

Ultimately, the silly material overwhelms the style ...

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.

February 27, 2013
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.

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.

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.

Unfortunately, no one here is especially sympathetic, and the shock both parents seem to feel on discovering their kid is a grade-A brat is hard to believe, given the general sense of verisimilitude.
