Long Story Short:
On his eighteenth birthday Johnny (Jesse James) finds out that he is adopted, and inherited an old farm in Maine. Why has the woman that he thought was his mother sheltered him his whole life? The farm holds a dark secret and Johnny is about to find out.
Dead Souls starts out very creepy and bloody. Even though it gets a little dry in the middle it managed to kept my full attention, because the acting performances are above average. The story is simple but interesting until the the big reveal, which is a little bit of a let down. I was expecting more, and from there everything happened so fast and suddenly it was over. I was hoping for something unexpected. But instead I got a conclusion that didn’t even make complete sense and seemed a little pointless. Nonetheless I think it was an entertaining movie that didn’t rely too much on gore effects, and tried to convince with its mysterious atmosphere.
