    Tom Witzky (Kevin Bacon) is a blue-collar worker, a family man, the most ordinary guy in the world... who is about to be plunged into a shattering encounter with another world. And it doesn`t matter that Tom doesn`t believe in the supernatural. Because something supernatural has started to believe in Tom.

    After he is hypnotized at a neighborhood party, Tom changes. He sees things he can`t explain and hears voices he can`t ignore. As the horrific visions intensify, Tom realizes they are pieces of a puzzle, echoes of a crime calling out to be solved. But when his otherworldly nightmares begin coming true, Tom wants out. He desperately tries to rid himself of his eerie, unwanted powers - only to be seized by an irresistible compulsion to dig deeper and deeper into the mystery that is consuming his life. When at last he unearths the truth, it will draw him into the long-buried secret of a ghastly crime, a vengeful spirit... and the lethal price of laying that spirit to rest.

    Your Opinions and Comments

    7 / 10
    Over four years after watching (and reviewing) it for the first time, I got a chance to watch "Stir Of Echoes" again.
    It`s still a good movie, despite the fact that it did not do that well in theaters due to the fact that it was released soon after "The Sixth Sense". In many ways, though, it is superior to it.
    Bacon delivers a powerful and convincing performance.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs at all and the picture is always clear.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is very good as well. The surrounds are used quite frequently to create a haunting feeling, and it sounds just great.
    The menus are still and silent.
    The extras include a good commentary by the director and a poorly edited behind the scenes featurette.
    Bottom line - a very good spooky movie, but alas, an average disc.
