Nightworld Lost Souls: Unoriginal but passable
19 July 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Lost Souls stars industry veteran John Savage and tells the story of a family who move into a new home and experience unusual events. Among them is a young autistic girl who seems to be at the centre of it all.

Truth is I'm pretty sure I've seen this very same plot before, it certainly isn't even remotely original but thanks to strong performances and a competent director it has an identity of its own.

Though it doesn't all flow together flawlessly it's a harmless little tale but I'd never say it falls under the horror umbrella. I'd call it a supernatural thriller.

Sadly among it's flaws are a few red herrings and unexplained moments/characters that really should have been padded out. Without being the film feels a tad incomplete.

Regardless Lost Souls is a just about passable effort even if you'll see the twist coming by no later than half way through the film.

The Good:

Well made

John Savage

The Bad:

Twist is a tad predictible

Too many unanswered questions

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I suddenly want a train set!
