Stir of Echoes (1999) - Movie Review


If you’re a Kevin Bacon fan (and even if you’re not), a really good supernatural/thriller worth checking out is:


Stir of Echoes (1999)


This is another one of those really enjoyable films that rarely gets talked about and in my opinion that’s a tragedy!


Stir of Echoes stars Kevin Bacon (Tremors), Jennifer Morrison (Star Trek) and Kevin Dunn (Transformers) among others and is based on the novel “A Stir of Echoes” by Richard Matheson (I Am Legend).


Here’s what it’s about with a little help from Google:


Blue-collar family man Tom Witzky (Kevin Bacon) scoffs at supernatural phenomena until he lets his sister-in-law put him into a hypnotic trance.

Upon waking, Tom has alarming hallucinations of a missing teenage neighbor who appears to be trying to tell him something.

Tom, convinced his visions will lead him to the girl, begins a desperate search that puts him and his family into a life-threatening situation.


I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen this film.

It’s an easy watch, keeps you guessing right up to the end and if you’re not much of a horror fan, it isn’t so scary that it’ll scare the bejesus out of you.


If you’re looking for something to watch this weekend or on the lead up to Halloween you can’t go far wrong with Stir of Echoes.

Seen it? What do you think?
