The Sixth Sense Blu-ray Movie Review

My husband surprised us this weekend when he carried home a copy of The Sixth Sense on blu-ray. I had heard of The Sixth Sense but I did not realize that when it was released it was a surprise blockbuster and went on to be nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture.

The story is a sad one, the tale of a nine-year old boy who has a secret, which he eventually shares with his psychologist. The secret? He can see the ghosts of dead people. The psychologist is skeptical but is desperate to help the boy and to save his own marriage, which is falling apart. It turns out that the reality is much more complicated than he expected.

All four of us, my husband, my teenage boys and myself, were enthralled. The Sixth Sense is a thriller and a ghost story with an amazing finish. It is a well-written and well-acted movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It features Bruce Willis, Haley Joel Osment, Donnie Wahlberg, Olivia Williams and Toni Collette. Here's a peek at this 1999 Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment production, which is, by the way, rated PG-13. The movie does have some graphic images which may be disturbing to even some high schoolers.



The Sixth Sense is a haunting story with a great story line. It is perfectly done as a thriller but it is not a horror movie. High-Def Digest calls it a "simple, haunting, and ultimately uplifting ghost story." I think that is perfect.

The blu-ray version? This movie received a good transfer and an interesting package of bonus materials.  A great film, it comes highly recommended by Blu-ray.com and by my family.

Does The Sixth Sense sound like a movie for you?

See you
at the movies!
