Watched “Stir of Echoes”

Am continuing my annual September trend for watching Ghost movies, and watched Stir Of Echoes, a 1999 film starring Kevin Bacon. It was okay (i.e. fair), a 2.5 out of 5 star movie as far as ghost movies go.  A little bit hoakie in parts, and fairly tame as far as ghost movies go, but it had its moments.  Why wasn’t it higher?  It was missing an intangible “it” quality that detracted from the atmosphere.  It had almost a made-for-TV type thinness to it.  But it wasn’t awful, although I probably won’t watch it ever again.  (In the movie, Kevin Bacon is hypnotized by his sister-in-law, and comes out with the ability to see ghosts.  He sees a ghost in his house and is compelled to solve the mystery, which has a minor plot twist at the end.  The movie is a kinda combination of sixth-sense, flatliners and Lady In White).
