Soul Survivors

Place your bets - how many will end up dead?

Cheap and cheesy. Don't go in with high expectations and you won't be disappointed.

Nigel Bell

Do you really want to know the plot? You've heard it all before. The tale of the teenagers who go to a suspicious night club (in an old church for goodness sake).

The women are chatted up by undesirables who then chase our heroes causing a car crash in the process.

Sean (Affleck), who'd just declared undying love for Cassie (Sagemiller) dies.

Cassie is traumatised because she couldn't commit to saying "I love you" before the tragedy.

Worse for her, she starts seeing Sean wandering around the college green. Worse still, those weirdoes who caused the crash are now trying to kill her.

Or are they?

She used to be such a nice girl

Her friends Matt and Annabel think she's going crazy. Mind you, they're acting pretty strangely themselves.

What is going on?

Horror buffs will probably guess the outcome long before all the elements come into place. If you do, Soul Survivors is a bit of a waste of time.

If you don't work it out the movie is more rewarding. Like Cassie you won't know who to trust. Are the events real, in her head or supernatural?

There are some squirmy sequences. If you don't like hospitals you could well have nightmares.

For me the beginning was poor, the middle acceptable, the end a real anticlimax.

But there are a few moments which make you jump and potentially grab onto the one you fancy and for the teen market Soul Survivors is pitched at, that's probably a good enough excuse to go and see it.
