    This film sounds really good. I like Aidan Quinn and I love a good ghost story. (Except I’m still hurting from the crappiness of “Ghost”!) I hope the The Eclipse gets a release beyond the film fest circuit.

    Same here. And I hear that the film makes you want to go straight online and book a ticket for Ireland. Like I need any encouragement!
