6 Souls movie scene

Julianne Moore gets inside Jonathan Rhys Meyers' head in 6-Souls.

Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right), Jonathan Rhys Meyers (Velvet Goldmine) and Frances Conroy (TV’s American Horror Story) star in the 2012 psychological thriller film 6 Souls.

After the death of her husband, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Cara Harding’s (Mooore) faith in God has been shaken, but not her belief in science.  In an attempt to open her up to accepting unexplainable psychiatric theories, her father introduces her to Adam (Meyers), a patient with multiple personalities, who takes on some of the physical characteristics of his other personalities. Cara quickly discovers that Adam’s personalities are murder victims, and the more she finds out about him and his past, the closer she and her loved ones come to becoming murder victims themselves.

Written by Michael Cooney (Identity) and co-directed by Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein, the R-rated film also features Jeffrey DeMunn (The Shawshank Redemption), Nathan Corddry (The Invention of Lying) and Brian Anthony Wilson (Limitless).

Originally entitled Shelter, 6 Souls popped up on video-on-demand in March 2013 before a tiny release to theaters in April. The critical view on the film wasn’t all that good — it received a 3.8 out of 10 at Rotten Tomatoes based on 23 published reviews — but the talented cast elevates its status in our book.

No bonus features are on the discs.
