Soulmates (1992)

"Immortal Richard Wayborn uses the bodies of the young women he kills to temporarily bring his wife back from the dead. They're Soul Mates. But Sara, his latest target, may be more than he bargained for."

This was okay for the first half hour, but the women were very plain even if most of them managed to get naked. The girl who played "Sara" just irritated me.

It wasn't scary and, although one of the better effects scenes reminded me of the end of "Doppleganger", it wasn't all that gory either.

I found it entertaining enough to watch all the way to the end though so I'll give it 3 out of 10. It was all a bit tame and, although filmed in 1992, was pretty much the same story as "The Skeleton Key" and the recent "Sea of Souls" special on BBC1. The latter is perhaps the best example of this kind of storyline so far.
