A Review & Analysis Stir of Echoes
Stir of Echoes
The film itself is accurate as far as the weight a psychic ability upon the emotional health of a human being, for both the talent and those connected to them who do not have this talent in any form, in this case his wife and sister in law. There are times when it comes across as an addiction/co-dependant story with similar characteristics to movies like When a Man Loves a Woman and Ray. But for the most part the horror element stays true to itself without getting bogged down into too much description which as a psychic has a tendency to over-interest me rather than frighten me into delight. (As in the franchise Paranormal Activity) The ghost sequences themselves are superb and although the over mix of the murder mystery story and the psychic one have a tendency to irritate me this one is flawless, sticking primarily to the details of the rape/murder combined with how it affects a person formally not acquainted with the mechanics of his power base. While only going to a policeman in the form of a symbolic act, rather than an act of reality. However what fascinated me was the duel role of the couples son, who provided for both character and audience, a sense of extreme fear and emotional comfort. Which generally is not done in horror film, they are either one or the other. The truth is this is one of the few films in this subgenre of horror, where i would not dare suggest something, perhaps, been made better. So enjoy.
