Stir of Echoes 2: The Homecoming ★½ 2007 (R)

Another of those mostly-in-name-only sequels. Army Captain Ted Cogan (Lowe) and his unit erroneously fire upon a van of civilians (who die) in Iraq, which leads to an insurgent attack that wounds Cogan. After coming out of his coma, Cogan is discharged and returns home to Chicago, where his wife and kid are having their own problems. Cogan starts suffering disturbing flashbacks that include ghosts who seemingly are trying to communicate with him. 89m/C DVD . Rob Lowe, Marnie McPhail, Katya Gardner, Zachary Bennett, Ben Lewis; D: Ernie Barbarash; W: Ernie Barbarash; C: Francois Dagenais; M: Norman Orenstein. CABLE
