Writer Michael Cooney Talks 6 Souls, His Interest in Psychological Stories, His Writing Process, What’s up Next, and More

After a three year delay 6 Souls is finally available to watch here in the states. The film was released in the UK under the title Shelter back in 2010. When a movie sits on the shelf that long it’s usually the sign of something rotten in Denmark, but 6 Souls is actually a pretty fun movie with a killer cast. The story follows psychiatrist Clara (Julianne Moore) as she attempts to unravel the mystery surrounding a Dissociative Identity patient (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) with a unique set of symptoms. Directed by Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein (Underworld: Awakening) and written by Michael Cooney (Identity), the film also stars Jeffrey DeMunn and Frances Conroy.

Shelter review

Mark finds a different film altogether from the one he was expecting in Shelter. He blames the adverts...

As a caveat to all that follows, it should be noted by readers who have never heard of Shelter that it's written by Michael Cooney, who brought us Jack Frost (the one that's not the Michael Keaton family flick) and Jack Frost 2: Revenge Of The Mutant Killer Snowman.

The radiant Julianne Moore plays Cara Jessop, a widowed psychologist whose years of experience with patients have left her cynical and close-minded. As the film starts, we see her declare that a serial killer on death row was of sound mind when he committed his crimes, because multiple personality disorder does not actually exist. The said killer is summarily executed.
