Stir of Echoes: Friday, September 10, 1999

From Artisan Entertainment, the people that brought us the much hyped Blair Witch Project, comes another much hyped movie: A Stir of Echoes. While the hype hasn't been as mammoth as that of Blair Witch, A Stir of echoes has been stirring up quite a buzz. The trailer has been playing with The Sixth Sense and Blair Witch for weeks now, and given all the positive reviews received so far, this movie looks like it could be heading towards some major success, thanks in part to The 6th Sense which has been the number one movie for five consecutive weeks


Like, The 6th Sense, A Stir of Echoes taps into the supernatural world. 
Tom Witzky (Kevin Bacon) is very skeptical about the supernatural world. For fun, he lets himself be hypnotized at a neighborhood party. The post-hypnotics suggestion opens his mind to a whole new world, and he becomes obsessed with the notion that there is a supernatural presence living in his home. While trying to discover what it all means, he discovers a horrible neighborhood secret.

This is David Koepp's sophomore attempt at the director's chair. His first movie The Trigger Effect was ill-received by the critics. He is best known and distinguished for this screenwriting work in such blockbusters such as Mission Impossible and Jurassic park.

 The People's Review of Stir of Echoes


score = 90
Not as good as The Sixth Sense in general quality, but about five times scarier. The way things were shown in small bits and clips like a jigsaw puzzle was creepy. But the effect that really chilled me down to the bone was the way they filmed the girl move - sort of jerky and just plain not right. If you're in the mood to get the hell scared out of you, rent this movie, wait until night, turn out the lights, and enjoy.

Great movie!!!  This movie scared the hell out of me!  In my opinion, Stir of Echoes blew The Sixth Sense out of the water...  Kevin Bacon was fabulous!

This was a wonderful movie!  Funny, wonderfully directed, and most of all - the scariest movie I've ever seen!!!  A must see!

Good movie but not scary!  It does keep your attention throughout and has quite a few funny lines in the middle of a serious plot.

Awesome Movie

If you liked the sixth sence you need to see this movie! i loved it (and there nothing like kevin bacon with no shirt on, whoa hold me back!)



I managed to watch the 1st 35 minutes of this movie and finally had to leave. It was just to frightening fo me. I am curious to see the end though. I however thought 6th sense wasgreat but also scary as hell



I loved this movie - it still freaks me out to think about it.



score = 20

This movie was terrible.  Part way through I just couldn't stop laughing... and let's just say I wasn't laughing _with_ the movie.


score = 90
This is a good, B+ movie in my book.  However, i'm sure everyone's seen this before.  Wheather it be in The Twilight Zone, X-files, or any other of the new, freaky, apocalyptic flicks. How about Kevin Bacon's Chicago accent?!



score = 90
Stir of Echoes is not the sixth sense but is more active and 'creepy' than it. See Stir of Echoes, I recommend it. But don't expect it to be sixth sense. Stir of Echoes has its own sense of creepy and supenseful fun to its own.
