I don’t remember ever hearing about Lost Souls (2000) until someone mentioned it on Twitter, so I put it on my find list. I thought it might have a chance since it quoted Deuteronomy Book 17 after the opening credits, and it has Winona Ryder and John Hurt, so I figured there’d be a chance that it’d be good; unfortunately, it was quite lackluster.
I’m not saying everything was bland in Lost Souls, it did have a few good bits here and there but not enough keeping it together, and was beyond predictable. One thing that I kept fixating on was the Insane Asylum. I’ve never been in one, so maybe it’s a thing, but do they put all the crazies in a great room and allow them to wander about? This isn’t the only movie where I’ve seen this depicted; it’s just a general question because I don’t have much more to say about this film.
As I reached the end, I thought that it was going to be like those where they keep the goodies until the end. Nope, it was just as oh hum as the rest of the movie.
Just because it had a few cool scenes, I’m giving Lost Souls 2.5 out of 5 Stars.
