Consensus: Though Kaminski's film is visually stylish, Lost Souls is just another derivative entry in the Apocalypse genre, with lackluster direction, unengaging characters, and no scares.

Jonathan Rosenbaum
Chicago Reader

Alas, look is everything here and storytelling and characters are next to nothing, so what emerges is oddly ineffectual and uninvolving -- visually striking set pieces set loose in a void.

With the original Exorcist back at the multiplex, you don't need this pale copy.

The tedious storytelling sucks the life and soul out of the characters far more effectively than Satan ever manages.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Odd camera angles, artfully dim lighting and showy tracking shots simply don't make up for suspense or intelligence.

Kaminski brings all the visual oomph one could ask for, but not enough narrative spine, momentum, or substance.

Mood alone cannot energize this slow, simplistic, and anticlimactic Exorcist pretender.

A pretty interesting film. Not the greatest flick out there, but still a little entertaining with a few scares.

End of the world flick about tracking down the anti christ. Interesting ending but a weak movie.
