Lost Souls

Lost Souls ★½ 2000 (R)

If the devil keeps showing up in second-rate horror flicks like this, he should get himself an agent. Although in all likelihood he probably is an agent. At any rate, he's back and trying to take over the world again by possessing the body of atheistic New York crime journalist Peter Kelson (Chaplin). Maya (Ryder), a former possession victim herself, is one of a group of New York exorcists who become aware of the conspiracy. She tries to convince the cynical Peter, but he scoffs at the idea until he begins to experience creepy hallucinations. Rent “The Exorcist” instead. Directorial debut of “Saving Private Ryan” and “Schindler's List” cinematographer Kaminski, who offers up some beautiful scenes in the midst of an ugly movie. 98m/ C VHS, DVD . Winona Ryder, Ben Chaplin, John Hurt, Elias Koteas, John Diehl, W. Earl Brown, Sarah Wynter, Philip Baker Hall, Brian Reddy, John Beasley, Victor Slezak, Brad Greenquist; D: Janusz Kaminski; W: Pierce Gardner, Betsy Stahl; C: Mauro Fiore; M: Jan A.P. Kaczmarek.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
