Soul Survivors (2001)

How bad is it? Dull psychological horror posing as a teen horror flick.
Should you see it? No.

The attractive young cast will probably appeal to many: Melissa Sagemiller, Casey Affleck, Eliza Dushku and Luke Wilson and a few others. The story has a car accident where someone dies and then weird things start to happen, with reality and dream sequences merging. There's a plot twist at the end that explains everything, which takes far too long to be revealed and which I had guessed from reading the plot synopsis on the DVD. There's one good joke based on one character's sexual identity, but that doesn't make up for the general homophobia of the film. You've seen this before, done better. For once, though, I've reviewed a film with a competent plot, direction, acting and film-making; it's just not good.
