When I read the press release for 6 SOULS, I was hit with a heavy case of deja vu. A psychological thriller starring Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers about a mental patient with multiple personalities - sounds awfully familiar. And there's a reason for that: this movie was once called SHELTER, and our first article about it came all the way back in the winter of 2008. The film received a theatrical release in a few overseas territories in April 2010, but never made it to the states... but that's about the change, y'all.
Picked up by the Weinstein Company's Radius shingle, "6 SOULS" will hit VOD on March 1st before getting a limited theatrical release on April 5th. For a movie that was made almost five years ago, you have to give it props for staying the course.
Directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein (who went on to direct UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING), 6 SOULS goes like this: After the death of her husband, Dr. Cara Harding's (Julianne Moore) faith in God has been shaken, but not her belief in science. In an attempt to open her up to accepting unexplainable psychiatric theories, her father introduces her to Adam, a patient with multiple personalities who takes on some of the physical characteristics of his other personalities. But, Cara quickly discovers that Adam’s other personalities are murder victims and the more she finds out about him and his past, the closer she and her loved ones are to becoming victims themselves.
