A childish ghost story, or is it just me getting older?

First of all, i must admit that i was completely unaware of this film, until very recently. Second, i saw many reviewers having given a high score to this movie, comparing it to its contemporary "Sixth Sense". I must say that when the latter was released, it didn't fascinated me that much, since i found it to be a rather superficial version of the 10-year older cult masterpiece with the title "Jacob's Ladder". Having said that, i now have to add that "Stir of Souls" is not, by any means, close to "Sixth Sense". What you' ll get here is a childish one- piece ghost story, lacking even the slightest twist to get things interesting. Both the scenario and the characters lack the psychological depth that could make a typical monolithic ghost story a good movie that keeps you guessing on the edge of your seat. Second class in all its aspects. My humble rating: 3/10.

Interesting but a senseless build-up to the climax

Neil goes all through with Maggie about what her boys (husband and son) are going through. He explains the difference between the way they each receive messages and that Tom doesn't have a choice but to FOLLOW them to make the ghost go away. She gets home later and is beside herself from that point on about his ridiculous digging. She's all the more put off by his blunt and robotic response that he's supposed to dig. In her mind, it's like the explanation Neil gave her never happened. How could she not have known to just leave him alone and let him do whatever weirdness he needs to?

Well worth the watch

When I review a movie I don't go into plot; you can read that anywhere. I'm a screenwriter myself so I tend to write about idiosyncratic things that you'd not look for, but your mind sees. The film has a fresh story, is beautifully lit, artistically shot, and is worth the watch. In the trivia section, one of the contributors has it exactly correct: what they would do is slow the film speed down as much as possible and have the actress walk as normally as she can. Then they speed the film up to regular speed and all the little mannerisms come out in an eerie sort of ghostly ethereal way. It's not used much - Hitchcock would have loved this technique. Lots of fortuitous things happen, like when Bacon kicks a bucket through a window which was accidental but Bacon had the presence of mind to stay in character thus the shot made the movie. The direction was better than average the acting better than average. Ileana Douglas is always good Bacon is usually good or Erbe is underrated and too seldom cast so you had the makings already of a film that you knew had potential. Add the weird twist and Jennifer Morrison, AKA Doctor Cameron from the show "House", and you have a movie that is great to watch on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I recommend it.
