Storyline

Mysterious unseen men in black (angels?) collect the souls of the recently dead. When four teenagers "die" in a car wreck, one of these beings ("The Man") is sent to retrieve their souls. However, the teens are disembodied and realize their predicament. They flee. The movie revolves around them being picked off one by one, The Man's infatuation with one of the teenagers (who was apparently his lover in a past life), and the efforts of the teens to reunite their souls with their hospitalized bodies.

Original Uncut version better than I thought
3 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

After reading the widely diverging opinions on this movie Soultaker, and being a big fan of the genre, I decided to look at this one -- the uncut version -- myself. While it's nothing to set the world on fire, there are way too many detractors who have overlooked its more interesting and original elements. Defininitely deserves at least a vote of 3 or 4 and those who rank it with the worst movies should really have their heads examined.
