By Bob Graham
Stir of Echoes is much more down and dirty (than "The Sixth Sense"), and the thrills are more visceral.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Wilmington
A horror movie with a Hitchcockian veneer of the everyday, a story that taps into our fear not only of the paranormal but also of insanity and the secret evil that may lie beneath ordinary lives.

Elevates the horror genre with a refreshing intelligence and humor -- too bad it's not half as good at generating scares.

Offers tricky fragmentation without mystery or mood; it's a mosaic of fear that grows less and less unsettling as it comes together.
