This is a faster-paced, more predictable version of Sixth Sense. The imagery was excellent, but the acting was bland and the characters seemed quite stupid. A slightly above average movie, but there's no good reason to see it in a theater.

As I understand it, this movie is an adaptation of a novel. It shows. "Stir of Echoes" has an intriguing plot, is well directed and pretty well acted. In spite of all of this, it didn't satisfy me. It tries very hard to be engrossing, but it simply isn't executed well enough. The movie screams out "book" in most scenes. It did give me chills - the atmosphere is very well established - but in the end it fails to deliver. It's a film that you want so badly to suceed, but it just can't deliver. You may choose to see this in the theater, but I'd suggest instead reading the book.

First of all....I liked it. Now here's a story of a boy who can see dead people...no I am not talking about the Bruce Willis movie, but Kevin Bacon's. The difference...while the little boy can see dead people...so can the dad. Stir of Echoes has the son seeing people he doesn't want to see and giving messages to people who may not want to hear them. Bacon, while at a party, gets hypnotized and the hypnotist throws a suggestion in his mind for Bacon to be more "open minded"...this leads to his new "look" on life or death depending on your perspective. The filming is gritty, has some intense scenes, and a bit of the "oh wow" that comes from the audience makes for a great viewing experience. Stir of Echoes far surpasses the storyline of "Sixth Sense", but falls short at the box office. Bottom line...while some film storylines die right away...this one lives on and on and on.

This was a real chiller but not so spooky that it will scare you to death. Kevin Bacon does a great job as the haunted Dad. I would recommend this movie to all that are old enough to see it. My 13 year old grandson saw it(he also saw it being made) and was okay with it. If this is a genre you enjoy, then go see it.
