Editorial Reviews

After the death of her husband, Dr. Cara Harding's (Julianne 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, (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) a patient with multiple personalities who takes on some of the physical characteristics of his other personalities. But, 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.

I bought this film based purely on the premise. Julianne Moore plays psychologist Cara Harding who finds herself investigating the case of Adam, a young man who seems to suffer from multiple personality disorder. But as Cara delves deeper into his strange case she soon finds that the answers to Adam's condition are far more sinister than she had ever imagined. **contains some spoilers**

I hoped this would be a smart psychological thriller perhaps with a neat twist thrown in somewhere. I got a twist all right but it certainly wasn't what I had been hoping for. The most disappointing thing about this film is that somewhere in amongst the mess there is a hint of something better, something that never was.

The first half the film is carried by Jonathan Rhys Meyers who plays Adam and all of his personalities. His perfomance in this film really was excellent. He slips from personality to personality with remarkable fluidity while managing to remain extremely convincing. His character switches were what convinced me to keep watching the film since I had been very unimpressed with the rest of it. It wasnt that Julianne Moore was bad - per se - but she was boring. The character had no depth or interest and this was highlighted all the more when she was up against Meyer's bold performances.

Unfortunately the film, which could have ben smart, then completely derails itself as it descends into a steaming pile of nonsense. The psychological element becomes the supernatural as Harding discovers that Adam's 'personalities' are in fact the spirits of murder victims. Even this might have been workable with a decent script but the directors seemed hellbent on destryoing their own film.

Spooky movies are all ridiculous because they are all frightening trips outside of reality. So I judge them strictly upon their ability to hold my interest. This one did a pretty good job. Like a lot of them, this one starts out with a logical scientific explanation of the character's strange behavior along psychological pathologies, but becomes "spooky" when it's found that something other worldly is at the root of the problem. The ability of the writers and producers to come up with something unique, that hasn't been done before is a challenge which, to me, often determines the success of the story line.

This one uses what world religions have used for centuries to control the masses . . . "Believe without question, or you'll wish you had." By the time the protagonist realizes the error of her ways, it's either too late, or at least almost too late to avert disaster. The only diversion from that old formula is the connection to old mountain ways and an old crone rather than a well recognized and accepted religion. The very ending has been done and over done too many times, but all in all a pretty entertaining movie. I enjoyed it and my popcorn.

Released in 2010 as “Shelter” overseas, the film was retitled “6 Souls” for its U.S. release. Julianne Moore is a psychiatrist named Cara who has specialized in debunking claims of multiple personality disorder. She receives a call from her father, Dr. Harding (Jeffrey DeMunn of The Walking Dead) who is also a Psychiatrist about a patient he wants her to see. She meets David (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), a wheelchair-bound young man. When David receives a call from Dr. Harding, he immediately transforms his personality into a man called “Adam”, who is able to get up out of the wheelchair and walk without any problem.

Cara looks into the histories of both of the man’s personalities, convinced he created the personality after reading about them in newspapers. Yet when she tracks down David’s mother (Francis Conroy of American Horror Story), and has her meet the man, he knows details about David’s life that he could not possibly know. Things grow more terrifying as David begins to display other personalities…personalities of people who have recently died. As she begins to doubt her theory, her investigations take her to the rural hill country where she meets a blind old woman called “Granny” who reveals that David is something much more terrifying than simply a man with a mental disorder.

I enjoyed 6 Souls for about the first two-thirds and then it sunk like a stone. There was nothing wrong with the introduction of the supernatural elements of the story until they became a convoluted mess about fire and brimstone preacher in the 1910’s who lost his faith in God and became possessed by an evil force that is never clearly defined. The last twenty minutes of the film is just about beyond comprehension that leaves you shaking your head over what just happened when it concludes. It’s too bad…the film had some promising elements and is bolstered by an exceptional cast but ultimately tries to get too cute for its own good.

Loved the story line and the suspence kept it going. Would highly recommend this movie to anyone that likes "sit on the edge of your seat" stories. Reyes did a wonderful job.

{3.5 stars}

6 SOULS has a compelling and unique storyline that nicely intermixes spiritual and psychological elements: There are some very original ideas here. It's well-produced and cinematized with realistic acting by all. It has the necessary focus but still leaves room for individual interpretation, the sort of film that you can watch multiple times, picking up new details and subtleties with each view. At times it seems pro-Christian, at times anti-Christian, or at least critical of the superstitious-fundamentalist brand of Christianity. Again, the religious elements are clear enough yet also vague enough.

The plot does drag and meander a good bit. There are also some of the usual tired old demon-tropes (people throwing up black goop, etc). Still, this film has a fairly solid mythos behind it and relies more on surprise and suspense than it does raw schlock. While nothing really truly special, 6 SOULS is probably worth seeing if you like psychological/supernatural horror and have been disappointed by a lot of the other recent efforts in this genre.

The ending leaves room for an interesting sequel. . .7 SOULS?
