The skillful shock cuts will make you jump out of your skin, but it's the digital visualisation of the ghostly Samantha which really makes the flesh crawl.

It's nice to see he relied on more than heavy-handed filmmaking and a twist ending. I just hope audiences go for a supernatural thriller that's a little messier and doesn't feel the need to claw at their heart for two hours.

Bacon's performance is what makes it more than just another dead-person-walking-the-earth story. Bacon is truly a man possessed.

Even if the ending seems a bit tidy, the film is still effective and nicely creepy -- definitely worth seeing.

Second-time director David Koepp steers clear of silly pyrotechnics and empty show as he anchors his supernatural thriller in Tom's daily rituals, employing the racket of city life and intelligent sound edits to crank up the tension.

Not too many genre films reach too far below the surface, and Stir of Echoes is a welcome aberration.

Kevin Bacon is remarkably effective as the caring father whose skepticism is rudely ruptured.
