2.0 out of 5 stars There's a reason for direct to DVD... December 10, 2007
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. *

4.0 out of 5 stars Sequel Homecoming September 5, 2007
Format:DVD
I first watched this film on the Sci-Fi Channel, thinking that it was going to be just another direct-to-cable or direct-to-video sequel, just like the other stupid sequels that have come out in that fashion for many years. However, this one very much surprised me and I really liked this film.

Rob Lowe (from the miniseries "The Stand" and "Salem's Lot") plays a U.S. Army soldier just returning home from Operation Iraqi Freedom and begins experiencing what at first looks like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; he begins seeing the civilians that he had seen killed while overseas in spirit form.

Anyone who likes Rob Lowe's films or likes this type of film should see it. I was real impressed by it taking the subject matter seriously and not making fun of it or making it a comedy (like so many other independent or direct-to-video sequels have been over the past few years). The storyline, I thought, was solid and the direction was really good for this type of genre film. I really wish this would've been released to theatre because it probably would've become a theatre cult film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A war movie that happens to be a ghost story October 13, 2010
Format:DVD
If you remember the original Stir of Echoes starring Kevin Bacon, It was a surprisingly good ghost story about a man whose mind is opened to the paranormal after a hypnosis session gone awry. The film turns into a murder mystery as our hero struggles to comprehend what the ghost is telling him.

Stir of Echoes: Homecoming attempts to capitalize on the original without much more in common than it being about a ghost trying to tell a tortured protagonist something. Which is pretty much the plot of every ghost story ever.

United States National Guard captain Ted Cogan's (Rob Lowe) command goes awry while serving in Iraq. Cogan orders an allied tank to fire a warning shot at a vehicle approaching his checkpoint, but due to a miscommunication the tank fires ON the vehicle, killing everyone in it except for a young girl who is subsequently killed in a separate RPG attack. Wounded, Cogan wakes up from a coma back in the States.

Cogan comes home to a family strained by the tolls of the Iraq war; wife Molly (Marnie McPhail) works double shifts to pay the bills, Max (Ben Lewis) has taken up smoking and hangs with a bad crowd, and Cogan grapples with his PTSD. To make matters worse, a burning ghost and visions of murder and suicide bedevil Cogan at every turn. The identity of the ghost is not so clear cut.

Homecoming bridges the gap between civilian and military lives, bringing the war home so to speak, through the paranormal.

Kevin Bacon's acting on the first movie made that movie a hit. This one does no justice to the first , "Stir Of Echos"

I am still not sure why this movie is called "Stir of Echoes 2" since it really has nothing to do with the original "Stir of Echoes" other than the main character having "visions". Read more
