Back in 1999 2 different ghost films came out.One of them was a huge hit and became one of the most talked about horror films of the late 90s,and the other got kind of forgotten. The film that was a hit was The Sixth Sense,a film I do not like. The film that was forgotten is Stir of Echoes.

Kevin Bacon and his wife are a working class couple. At a party Bacon's sister in law hypnotizes him. After he starts getting flashes of the future and the past. Seems there was a mentally challenge teenage girl that disappeared in his neighborhood a few years ago. So Bacon is trying to figure out if the girl is dead or whatever.

Normally ghost films kind of bore me but this one is a major exception.The acting is damn good. The FX work is damn good,and the story is compelling.

Stir of Echoes gets a B+.
