“Like many, I was expecting an entirely different movie from what was shown on the previews for Soul Survivors – but sadly, got something else. It was released to theatres (shockingly) in 2002. Itu0026#39;s now 2008 and Iu0026#39;m still kind of stumped.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe movie has enough ingredients to make it a slasher/horror hit, but itu0026#39;s just too confusing – and mind twisting for itu0026#39;s own good. Donu0026#39;t go thinking Iu0026#39;m dumb. I do get the story, itu0026#39;s just….the way it was portrayed was, well, horrible. The movie has too many flashbacks and hinted twists that you end up racking your brain, thinking what the hell is going on. Now, I love a movie were I have to use my head, but this just takes the cake. They quickly ditched the u0026quot;stalkeru0026quot; idea more than a quarter into the movie and focused more on the lead female having flashbacks and thinking she was insane. It just went down the drain from there.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eItu0026#39;s sad though as the cast are very talented. Plus the movie had a cool, horror vibe setting. So why the bad script? All I know is, when you see the poster for the movie + trailer, you think youu0026#39;re going to get a totally different movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll in all it was a disappointment. The only reason I sorta enjoyed it was because of the gorgeous Eliza Dushku. But for non Eliza fans, I would take a pass on this one!”
