Stir of Echoes
In this supernatural thriller, Tom Witzky (Kevin Bacon) is a fairly typical working-class guy living in Chicago with his wife Maggie (Kathryn Erbe) and his son Jake (Zachary David Cope). One night at a party, Tom gets into a lively discussion with his sister-in-law, Lisa (Illeana Douglas), who believes in psychic communication and the power of hypnosis. He challenges Lisa to hypnotize him, and she plants in him a post-hypnotic suggestion to be more open-minded. But the results aren't quite what Lisa or Tom expected; Tom now senses an air of terrible dread throughout his house and is convinced that evil lurks just around the corner. He also sees the spirit of a girl from the neighborhood who disappeared months ago -- and Jake sees the spirit as well. Stir of Echoes was based on a novel by Richard Matheson, whose work inspired such disparate films as Somewhere in Time and The Incredible Shrinking Man; it was written and directed by David Koepp, who wrote the screenplays for Jurassic Park and Mission: Impossible. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Stir of Echoes


    Great movie-one of my all time favorites. I saw some of it on TV once and it instantly grabbed my attention. So I rented it and watched it all the way through and loved it. The opening where Jake the son is talking to a ghost makes you want to see more and find out why the girl is there. Its quite a good plot, one of the few horror movies that doesn't rely on gore to pull in an audience

    An extremely riveting ghost movie

    This is a fantastic ghost movie that doesn't have too many cheap scares. I actually preferred this over The Sixth Sense, released the same year, it had more of the dark mood I prefer. Kevin Bacon is great here. The ghost effects were very disturbing, and more natural looking than most CGI effects used now. You will love this movie.

    Kevin Bacon gives a good performance. Supernatural thriller that isn't anything new but isn't bad either. Worth seeing if you're into those kind of movies. The picture quality is really good. Lossless audio brings the atmosphere to life.

    A good thriller


    The movie is a rather good tale of suspense and worth a look. The lossless audio and great image quality make this one a sure bet if it can be picked up on the cheap. Otherwise, just give it a rent.
