Slow and unimaginativeBy DEAN from NEWCASTLE , 12 Apr 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]slow and boring. The whole thing has been done many times before, but never this bad. The actors struggled with a bad script, and the script struggled for an ending. BORING.

Awful Quality. Awful Film.By LittleRaeJay (12 reviews) from Birmingham , 29 Feb 2012I need to precede this review with this: my TV works fine, as does my hearing.
I say this because this film was so quiet I turned it all the way up to 30 (a volume which would normally have the neighbours two doors away complaining) and I couldn't actually hear it properly.
Now were the film engaging and fun I'd have enjoyed having to make effort to hear it, but it was so dry and slow that I switched it off.
It feels like it was a cheap effort all round with one or two has-been actors in it. I like Ryder, but not in this.
Just awful.By a customer , 05 Sep 2011I have only ever switched off a handful of movies. This was one of them...
I didn't even make it to the half-way point.
It was just painful!!

Has A Good Story But Is Disappointing Really.By filmsaremypassion (149 reviews) from Bexhill , 08 Mar 2011I wanted to see Lost Souls, it sounded quite good and would be something to watch in the afternoon. Maya (Winona Ryder) has a unusual gift to help the priests with exorcisms after her terrifying possession from a demon. After a serial killer tells them a chilling warning that Satan will overtake a man and be like Jesus, Maya must find the person in the question who is a writer but has no beliefs (Ben Chaplin). But when he goes through some disturbing events, he has to work with Maya to find a way to stop Satan rising from hell. Sounds good, dosen't it? Well on screen, it fails to engage the viewer and takes a awfully long time to get on with it. Even the ending is empty. The pefomances were so-so, their characters don't have enough to make anyone warm to them. While others may disagree with this review, there are a few that could be left disappointed like me. Not really recommeneded unless you're a Winona Ryder fan or like exorcism theme.
