VODetails: ‘6 Souls’

VODetails: '6 Souls'

More and more films premiere on Video on Demand — if they don’t simply bypass a theatrical release altogether. Because VOD reviews are often scarce and hard to find, Criticwire created VODetails, a recurring column to help you figure out whether a new VOD release is worth your hard-earned dollar. This time we’re looking at “6 Souls,” a movie about a psychiatrist trying to cure a man with multiple personalities —
not the surprisingly spiritual sequel to “Fast Five.”

Directors: Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein

Cast: Julianne Moore, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Nate Corddry

Official Synopsis: “After the death of her husband, Dr. Cara Harding’s (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 and her loved ones are to becoming murder victims themselves.”



Jake Dee, JoBlo:

“Story issues, pacing, third act absurdities, slightly overlong running time… all fair gripes… but these things sort of pale in the wake of such ever elusive movie chills.”

Ken Hanley, Fangoria:

“Solid in its execution for the first 90 minutes or so, and the performances warrant a cautious recommendation.”

Staci Layne Wilson, Inside Horror:

“A cliche-ridden but decent time-waster of an occult-horror mystery.”

Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com:

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.”

Harvey Karten, ShockYa:

The only thing scary is that Julianne Moore must have been desperate to agree to this role.”

6 Souls” is now available on VOD.
