Overshadowed by the similarly themed Sixth Sense, Stir of Echoes seemed to be a flop initially, but upon revisiting the film, audiences will find it equally if not more frightening. The gripping plot does not lose effectiveness after the first viewing, and uses subtle scares created through the characters interactions with the unseen ghosts and clever editing. This is easily Kevin Bacon's best performance as the ESP-plagued protagonist, haunted by visions of a missing girl stalking his family. The cadences of each of the characters are unique and interesting, with a blue collar appeal that is both believable and relateable. One of the best genre films to come out of the 90s, highly recommended!
