Format: DVD
Like my title reads, there's a reason this movie went for a direct to DVD release. It was pretty bad. The original Stir of Echos had a great plot and actually carried a story with good characters, whereas this movie resorts to cheap scares and a story that I'm still trying to put together a week later after watching it.

Rob Lowe's acting was good and believable but that's where it ends. The movie opens with Rob Lowe's character commanding a troop in Iraq that accidentally kills a van loaded with a family trying to escape. An rpg explodes, Rob's character is hit, his friend is predictively killed and he is sent home after waking from a coma still suffering from the guilt of killing an innocent family. From there it only gets worse with what I think the director wanted as a twist comes off as simple confusion.

The first movie was so good, it's too bad they used the same name for this movie because anyone who has never seen the original Stir of Echos prior to watching this one won't bother to watch it when they should.

My take, you can safely skip this one.

- Dan.

Stir of Echoes: The Homecoming (Ernie Barbarash, 2007)

I let this sit on my DVR for weeks, fearing to watch it. Well, I finally did, and it turns out I was right to do so. The original Stir of Echoes was one of my favorite movies of 1999, though it never got the recognition it deserved (it was eclipsed by The Sixth Sense in much the same way Near Dark was eclipsed by The Lost Boys fifteen years before), and I was pretty sure any sequel, especially one that went straight to the morass of the Sci-Fi Channel Original Movie, was bound to tear out anything that made the original good and keep the lurid aspects without anchoring them to anything worthwhile. Seems I didn't need to watch the movie, as I pretty much had it dead-on already. But I sat down and watched it, more fool me.

Plot: Ted Cogan (Rob Lowe), an Iraqi War vet, suffers a traumatic injury after his position is hit by an RPG shell. When he returns home, the fallout from that incident gets him branded a murderer. Worse, he finds he can see ghosts. Sound familiar? One in particular needs him to right an injustice. Sound even more familiar? Yeah, it's less Stir of Echoes than it is Sixth Sense, but without any of the excellent acting, original touches, or attention to detail that characterized both of those 1999 movies. Worse yet, Barbarash (Cube Zero), who also wrote the screenplay, turns this into bland, pallid message crap that recognizes no grey areas in its subject matter whatsoever, one of the real defining characteristics of the original.

Just plain awful. *

"Guns don't kill people. Stupid people that feel guilt from fighting multiple wars simultaneously kill people."

Is that the theme, or moral, of this overly-simplistic-and-obvious film that takes advantage of the mood of 2007, when the US was still fighting multiple wars on multiple fronts? Luckily for us, since then, the US has ended those wars and closed Quantonomo Bay. After all, the "Great One" promised to do these things, way back one year after this film released, when He was elected.

"What, we're still fighting wars, and Quantonomo Bay is still open?" you ask incredulously, after five years of His leadership? "How can this be?" Well, when you make the statement, "You didn't build that!" followed by the lie of the year in 2013, "You can keep it," you can pretty much say whatever you want. After all, you should never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

And the problem with this film: it's neither the truth nor a good story. The first film with Kevin Bacon surely had it's moments, and I gave it a mild recommendation. It was kind of spooky, and the director allowed the tension to build slowly but surely. But here, it's like taking a shell to the gut right out of the gate. And those shells keep coming, which makes you want to, well, just duck and cover.

And my recommendation would be: instead of renting this film, just duck and cover. Hide in a place that doesn't even have a TV, just in case "Stir of Echoes 2: Daddy's Home" just happens to come on accidently. Another piece of advice: when someone says, "You can keep it," or "You didn't build that," just vote for the other guy. Otherwise, you'll just get the opposite of what you're promised.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By R. Schultz VINE VOICE on August 17, 2008
Format: DVD
This movie features another avenging ghost, a somewhat pale pastiche of the spirit in "The Grudge." This haunt isn't as frightening because its popping up is too pat, and it is too laden with excrescence, making it almost reminiscent of "The Creature from the Black Lagoon." Such appearances end up bringing the apparition almost too close to campiness.

However, this "Stir of Echoes" is unexpectedly, seriously good in another way. It very movingly portrays some of the tragedy and trauma coming out of the War in Iraq, actually doing a better job of this than many of the documentaries I've seen on the subject.

The movie also takes an interesting turn. It rises above predictability and builds into some very telling character study.

The film already seems to be a little dated in its portrayal of U.S. citizens' tendency to stereotype all Middle Eastern Muslims just after 9/11. Thankfully, most Americans seem to have gotten beyond such corrosive, knee-jerk prejudice.

In addition to the more major charge that can be brought against this film for projecting some rather ludicrous apparitions - there are a few minor distractions about "Echoes 2." For one thing, Rob Lowe seems miscast - not in his role as U.S. soldier fighting in Iraq - but in his role as father to the young man he's trying to discipline at home. Lowe just seems too young to be this actor's father. I persistently wanted to transfer Lowe himself into the James Dean-like role of troubled, rebelling son.

Also, the extras on the DVD aren't very good. The Director's Commentary doesn't add much to the understanding of the film or its making, and you can probably skip it.
