The Flick: "6 Souls" is a recycled idea for sure.  Start with a little Primal Fear and a pinch of Fallen and you’ve essentially got a Michael Cooney’s script.  But that’s frankly only a small part of the problem within "6 Souls."  The film goes on way too long, eventually becomes dull and predictable and ends in a way that even a blind man can see coming.  Even the performances stretch the believability limit, with Moore playing over-wrought over the top, Meyers playing a hokey version of Edward Norton and Walking Dead alum Jeffrey DeMunn relegated to father role fluff.  Mildly entertaining, "6 Souls" is great...for the genre uninitiated.      

Best Feature: No features here – guess nobody wanted to own up on this one!

Best Hidden Gem: Joyce Feurring’s Granny Holler Witch did give me the willies!

Worth the Moola: Forget evil – horror familiarity has many faces film fans!
