God, Sex & Apple Pie Review


Good
I didn't see any God or any apple pie in this indie flick, but damn if there isn't a ton of sex.

Very Good
Imagine a strange conflagration of The Sixth Sense and Close Encounters of the Third Kind and you might have an idea what Stir of Echoes is like.

The story involves Bacon's blue-collar Chicagoan, who starts having visions of a dead girl shortly after being hypnotized at a party, but it's Zachary Cope that steals the show as the kid who also has the shining... While Kathryn Erbe is terribly miscast as Bacon's wife, don't be surprised if you have an urge to start digging after you watch this picture.
