Lost Souls is a UPN Original Movie released in 1998 as part of the Thursday Night at the Movies block that ran from 1998-2000. It is one of six movies created by the same production team, and the six films were given the brand Nightworld. The movie then aired frequently on the Fox Family Channel, and was included in their 13 Days Of Halloween special in October.


Victor Robinson has just moved into a country home with his family. When his son, Jesse, finds an old Edison invention and begins to play it, he hears the sounds of children laughing and playing. This is followed by Victor's autistic 12-year-old daughter, Meaghan, painting and singing; this is surrounded by strange occurrences around the house. When Victor discovers that two children were murdered in the area years before, he believes they are trying to contact him; he also believes that their neighbor is responsible for the murders.



Although the movie takes place in Ulster County, New York, in the fictional city Chesapequa, it was filmed in various cities in Luxembourg such as scenes in the forested area of Berdorf called the Mullerthal Trail. It is a popular tourist attraction that leads to many caves such as the famous Hohllay Cave.
