6 Souls

Good Monday evening everyone,

Today I will be reviewing a movie that I have never seen before let alone heard of. It stars some pretty awesome actors though and it's on Netflix.

Released in 2013 (although IMDB says that it was 2010, and Rotten Tomatoes and Wikipedia both say 2013) and directed by Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein this movie stars Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Now I remember Moore the movie Hannibal and wasn't extremely impressed by the movie; and Meyers I fell in love with during The Tudors. Oh did I mention that Dale from The Walking Dead is also in this movie? 

The premise of this movie is that a forensics psychologist discovers that all of the multiple personalities of one of her patients are actually murder victims and needs to figure out what is going on before time is up. 

Now there isn't any trivia...only the fact that Moore also played a Dr. Harding in the movie The Lost World.

This movie is more of a psychological thriller and doesn't have a whole lot of gore; although the whole coughing up dirt seems a bit gruesome to me. Of course there are moments when something jumps out and you jump in your seat, or you see a very decomposed body and you go ick but other than that not a whole lot.

There are a handful of interesting twists, but in the end a lot of them are predictable.  Oh and a fair warning, this movie does get a bit preachy at the end about never losing your faith. 

IMDB rates this movie a 6 out of 10 stars, and Rotten Tomatoes gives it a  whopping 4% with a 44% audience approval rating. I'm going to give this movie a 3 out of 5 skulls, I can see what they were going for but it just felt lack luster.
