    A grade-B rumination on what a nasty guy the devil can be.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Possesses the art and craft of a good movie, but not the story.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    Predictable, rarely scary.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Kim Morgan

    Fails to be resonant and, more important, scary.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • John Petrakis

    So filled with illogical twists and ridiculous turns, that eventually it evokes unintentional laughs.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Dark and murky, grainy and grim.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    It's a dated effort.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    Full of atmosphere and visuals, it's empty of anything that really matters.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    Silly, undone by lack of faith in its own subject.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • William Arnold

    A screaming, silly cliche -- and somehow not a bit scary.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Hazel-Dawn Dumpert

    While Kaminski understands that movie terror comes in at the eyes, he has little skill for connecting sensation to hearts and minds.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Preposterous plot, bad acting, and dialogue that provokes more laughs than shivers.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The most intriguing thing about Lost Souls is how it managed to attract so much talent.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    His (Kaminski) first feature is so thoroughly awful, it isn't even interesting to look at.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Carla Meyer

    While it's beautifully shot, it's way too slow.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    Muddled tale of demonic hijinks and devil worship. It's terrible.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Kevin Thomas

    A dreary tale of supernatural horror.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    It's the central story that's lacking.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Lael Loewenstein

    The hallucination sequences are among the pic's creepiest.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    It's a loose reassembly of plot points from "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Exorcist" that never achieves the emotional intensity of either.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    A lugubrious sub-"Exorcist" demonic possession film that's absolutely no fun at all. Full Review
  • Jessica Winter

    Can be blamed foremost on its fire-and-brimstone screenwriter, Pierce Gardner.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Gemma Files

    An almost total waste of time. Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    A pretty dreary affair to sit through. It's not even scary.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Jonathan Rosenbaum

    What emerges is oddly ineffectual and uninvolving.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Cody Clark

    The only thing about this movie that will haunt you is its boggling ineptitude.

    Mr. Showbiz Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Another "Exorcist" bastard -- one with a chick-flick pedigree.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Shamelessly dull.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    If the devil made them all do it, he's one dull bastard.
