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.

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.

Rob Lowe must have had to buy a house because what other reason would he agree to do this junk? Watch the original with Kevin Bacon, not this one. We lasted 15 minutes before shutting it off.

If you're anti American you might enjoy it.

"Stir of Echoes 2" seems like a movie that had been sitting around and they didn't know what to do with it, so they slapped on title and hoped for the best. "Stir of Echoes 2" has virtually nothing to do with the original which was a subtle, tense, build up that drew you into the story. The only thing "Echoes 2" has in common with the original except the main character becomes haunted by a dead girl, but has none of the subtly of the original.

Rob Lowe plays Ted Cogan a vet returning from the invasion of Iraq, where in the "fog of war" he inadvertently kills a family including a young girl. Upon his return home he becomes increasingly haunted by visions of the Iraqi dead and the young girl, until it carries over into his life and starts affecting his family.

The most expensive thing in "Stir of Echoes 2" seems to be Rob Lowe, who they expected to bring the same star draw that Kevin Bacon brought to the original, but Lowe out acts the rest of the cast and seems the only believable characterization.

The special features includes a commentary with the director, Ernie Barbarash, and a behind the scenes documentary, and deleted scenes but once you get that far you don't care enough about the movie or the characters to be interested.

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.
