4.0 out of 5 stars Dead Souls June 15, 2013
Format:DVD
Made for TV movies are tricky business. Those Sci-Fi Channel originals are never going to be confused with quality entertainment, that's for sure. Sometimes it seems like they're reveling in the cheapness of their productions. But what about that other genre channel, Chiller? They're producing their own movies, too. Are they of the same non-quality or have they learned from the other channel's mistakes? The initial assumption would be that, yes, their made for TV movies are going to be just as cheesy. So when I first heard Michael Laimo's novel DEAD SOULS was being adapted for Chiller, I wasn't sure if I my reaction should be "Wow, that's awesome" or if it should be, "Dude . . . Good luck." And while I have the novel on which the movie is based, I haven't read it yet, so I can't speak for the faithfulness of the adaptation, only what I thought of the movie as its own entity.

Not bad, actually. I was somewhat surprised, and at times impressed, by the movie.

The story takes places on a rural farm in Maine where, 17 years earlier, Benjamin Conroy killed his wife, teenage son and daughter (and the family dog), before crucifying himself in the family barn. His dying words, as the sheriff walks in and discovers the crime scene, are, "One more," which we assume is in reference to the baby the teenage son had hidden in the basement when the father's murder spree began.

Cut to present day and 18-year-old John Petrie receives a letter in the mail telling him he's just inherited the Conroy family farm in Maine, and if he can come see the place, the lawyer overseeing the estate can get it sold and have the business done with.

John, however, has no idea what's going on. John Petrie's father is dead, but his mother is alive and well--that is, she's alive.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Haunted House into Zombie Flick.This movie was very well done,and certainly had my interest and then WHAM ! The corpses (several) all started coming back and it seems to me as a big cop out,,,,From a decent horror movie to a who really cares,walking dead, let's just end this thing. Rent it! Don't buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray Review: "Dead Souls" July 6, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
When reviewing movies, it's sometimes hard to judge them fairly by the mediums they were created for. For instance, to come down as hard on a TV-movie created on a small budget as you do a bigger one like the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" remake would be unjust. That's how I tried to look at Chiller's "Dead Souls."

Johnny Petrie (Jesse James) inherits an old farmhouse on his 18th birthday from a family he didn't even know he had. Tired of living under the thumb of his overprotective aunt (Geraldine Hughes), he decides to visit his boyhood home and solve the mystery as to who he really is. Upon arriving, he discovers his father (J.H. Torrance Downes) was a local preacher in the small Maine town. He went crazy one night and murdered his entire family, leaving the restless spirits of his mother (Elizabeth Irene) and siblings (Kyle Donnery and Bridget Megan Clark) trapped in the house for eternity.

"Dead Souls" is an effective little supernatural thriller from Chiller directing regular Colin Theys. He does as well here with the haunted house genre as he did with the zombie genre when he helmed Steve Niles' "Remains." That might not win many over, but I thought the Las Vegas-set living dead tale was an entertaining entry into the world of Saturday Night straight-to-cable B-movies.

Things tend to happen quickly in a 90-minute movie based on a 295-page novel. Yes, character development in the movie feels a bit rushed and it would have been nice to get them a little more fleshed out, but overall I thought director Theys and screenwriter John Doolan did what they could with the time they had allotted.

Just like most low-budget horror films, "Dead Souls" has one big genre actor it relies on to help bring in fans.

Once I started watching (I should have read the reviews first), I realized this was indeed your typical [SPOILER] I inherited a haunted house from my crazy and possessed relatives. That said, it maintained my interest (though I think I laughed a couple of times when I was supposed to scream) all the way through the end. At that point, I was happy it was just a rental. It is not memorable, original, or the best of its kind, but it can be watched.

1.0 out of 5 stars A real yawner March 24, 2014
By PR GUY
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Yet another yawner about a haunted house. Nothing new or creative about it. It is a TV movie made for the Chiller Channel. It's a chiller alright...cold as a corpse. It could have been a 30-minute mini episode of a trilogy...and even then it would need commercials to stretch it that far. Don't waste your money.
