Joe Fallow (Ray Bullock Jr.) works nights driving a street sweeper, hangs out in a cafe with his one and only friend and is hopelessly in love with waitress Heather (Katrina Cooke).

If this film had been made by a famous director with decades of experience and a hollywood budget then you'd, perhaps, have grounds upon which to rubbish it.

As Neil Oseman is still cutting his teeth in the Director's Chair I think he should be given a nod of respect.

Watch the extra features on this DVD and you might understand that Soul Searcher isn't about one night's entertainment, it's about inspiration.

I think Soul Searcher is a film for wannabe film-makers...not boneheads.

Incidently, does S.M stand for Small-Minded...?

Well, the director of this movie struggled for years to get it made. Why should you care? Well because he made this thing from nothing. All director Neil Oseman had was a ball of string and some Celotape, and he managed to produce this, a low budget movie that puts many a Hollywood blockbuster to shame! Even The Guardian newspaper liked it!

Andy Nicol puts in a great performance as the movies bad guy Dante, while Ray Bullock JNR (not to be confused with the guy who sang the theme from Ghostbusters) is also very convincing as the every day guy who manages to save the world.

Soul Searcher is a hark back to the days of real practical effects rather than CGI. And, while some of these may be ropey in places (to be expected given the budget), many of them are also extremely impressive! They give the production a certain charm that is completely lacking from the clinical Hollywood blockbuster output that we usually see these days.

Special mention must go to the films musical score too. Low budget movies usually have some guy in his bedroom creating the music on his Rolf Harris Stylophone. Not so with Soul Searcher. Here we have a full 60 piece philomonic orchestra doing the deed.

Yes Siree, you won't be dissapointed with this one.

Firstly I do want to praise director Neil Oseman for the sheer achievement of bringing a film of this ambition to life on what I understand was a nothing budget of about 20K. That's incredible and he deserves admiration for doing what Hollywood would do for millions of dollars. But, and this is a fact that seems to elude many champions of indie films, once a film is put up there as a piece of entertainment then it can only be judged on its merits. I love indie films and am glad to see new filmmakers trying this kind of thing in Britain (we certainly need something different) but 'Soul Searcher' is a lame and highly predictable movie.

The script is the real problem: it's too obvious what's going to happen and the sub-plots are dull and irrelevant to the main one, which concerns a young and diffident street sweeper being appointed Death's apprentice. The dialogue is horrible in places and you can guess what line is coming because you've heard it said a million times before, in better movies. The actors are OK but have little to work with, though admittedly I thought the fight scenes were quite well choreographed and I was fairly intrigued by the film for the first half an hour. But, once the novelty wore off, I soon found myself sadly willing for the end.

It's not worth being too harsh on the effects because they can only be so good on a miniscule budget, though Oseman should have really thought twice about the banshee! Indie fans and new filmmakers should find something in this film that makes it worth a watch but, as a slice of audience entertainment, it's pretty poor viewing.

I wanted to like this film, I really did. Especially since it was filmed in my home town and one of my friends is the girl cowering in the car park scene. The novelty, however, wore off pretty early. I am very aware that director Neil Oseman produced this film on very little budget but writing a good script or finding a good local scriptwriter is surely the biggest investment one should make. Even I know that, and I'm no film maker. A prime example is when the lead male is trying to find the words to tell the cafe waitress how much she means to him so he whimpers the line: "You're so funny and intelligent and you light up the room" when the audience has barely heard her speak in the twenty minutes of screentime, let alone crack a joke, say anything remotely learned or even smile with any inner warmth. Curious! The less said about the plastecine Banshee the better.
By the time the "legion" of baddies arrive (thats 3 baddies really, cleverly filmed from different angles. Kill Bill showdown it aint) I was willing for the end. The climax being a train crash into hell that looks more like Wallace and Gromit go to the Moon.
All in all dire, souless acting, dreadful, dreadful script and a story lifted straight from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Neil, I take my hat off to you and you should be very proud of the work you put in on such little resources. For a movie viewer wishing to be entertained, however, it was like Knightmare meets Rolfs Cartoon Club. In a bad way!
