Runtime: 90 mins Release Date: 28 May 2009
The Montreal screening was a testament of how good this movie is. OMG! This is really really scary. Slow in some parts but it totally brings the mood. The scares will stay with you even after you've left the cinema. Jesse Bradford showed some real acting chops and his character is so believable. The Echo is not your usual shrieks and screams. In fact the movie is very quiet. That is why it is so effective - you don't know when the scares will happen. The realistic treatment of domestic violence added to the horror of the story. If you like Rosemary's Baby or The Sixth Sense, then <more>
this is the perfect film for you. The movie is above par compared to most SCARY movies out there and I would say that this will be a cult hit. It's so sad that it's not picked up yet by North American distributors. Too bad for my friends in the west coast! I hope this gets released soon. The director is someone to watch out for. Très bon !
Must see for Horror fans! Highly recommended! (by iruon_itauol)
I must say i didn't expect much from this film. I myself am an absolute horror fan. I can say i watched almost every horror film worth seeing and browsing the internet looking to find some gems that might be not so fammiliare.When i bumped in to The Echo, the cover caught my attention. I didn't expect much from it because i didn't hear about it at all.Well what do u know! It was great! I really recommended this to all horror fans who like creepy ghost stories. Cause i cannot remember seeing one for the past years so creepy as this one.The story and acting is good. And the ghosts <more>
are also really scary. Also the score/soundtrack of the movie is great! Kept me on the edge of my seat, so highly recommended !
I only give this movie a 9 because it was a bit slow to get started. A young man gets out of jail and moves into his mothers old apartment. No one is quite sure how she died and the door had to be broken in for her body to be taken out. He makes some discoveries in the apartment that leave him with a lot of questions. One day as he's going to his apartment, he ends up in an elevator with a police officer. He doesn't say anything, but you can sense is discomfort as he feels like the officer is following him. He proceeds to his apartment and the officer enters the apartment next door. <more>
He begins to hear arguments in the adjoining apartment and bangs on the wall at one point to let them know he hears them. Occasionally he sees their little girl sitting in the hall playing a tiny play piano. Each day seems to pull him more and more into the events of this family. When we find out why the guy went to jail, we understand why he is reluctant to risk a possible fight with the man. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll end here. This movie should make us reflect on whether or not it is our business to step in when we see someone getting abuse. Like the woman that was raped and killed outside a building while no one did a thing to stop it, or the current gang rape that just happened. Ask yourself if you would put yourself at risk for someone you don't know and whether you would expect someone to step in if you were in some kind of danger at the hands of another person.
What if you refused to help a person in need and paid for it in a more horrible way than you can comprehend? (by AndyVanScoyoc)
~As will be reviewed in the June 2010 issue of Twisted Dreams Magazine - Contains spoilers!~ Have you ever seen someone in need and offered to help? Or are you one of those people who passes people by and thinks, someone else will do it – don't get involved? What if your lack of involvement caused devastating circumstances to the victim? What if because of your refusal to help, they sought vengeance against you? Meet Bobby. Newly out of jail and I later found out that it was not his fault and was reminded of how badly the American "justice" system sucks. But you'll have <more>
to watch to find out why he was jailed! and just wanting to start over again. He tries to pick up the pieces of what was once his life and moves into his deceased mother's apartment. And that's when the trouble starts.It begins with noises, odd and troubling sounds that wake him up and then the visions of his dead mother begin to play havoc with his mind and he is slowly sucked into a never-ending nightmare.His neighbor, Gina Calzado is an abused wife whose husband, Walter played with far too chilling realism by Durand likes to come home and smack around on both her and their daughter, Carly.Bobby may have been in prison, but he still won't stand for his neighbor – cop or not – to beat on his wife and kid and tries to help but things just start getting stranger.The visions begin to happen more and more frequently and it's not just Bobby who finds himself thrust into the middle of something he doesn't understand. The visions also begin to manifest themselves to Alyssa Warner and to other tenants of the building.However the more Bobby tries to help, the more dangerous Walter becomes with devastating consequences to Gina and Carly.But things are not as they seem and as Bobby slowly loses his sanity or so he feels he finds out the real reason why he's being tormented and what he has to do to stop it.This is a great Noir movie, simply seething with dark tension and chills. I sat on my couch, anxiously anticipating each scene and was so involved that my husband looked at me and said, "Holding hands with yourself, dear?" I looked down and my hands were clamped so tightly together I was cutting off circulation.Dark, tragic and with a stellar performance by Kevin Durand as the wife-beating cop that will leave you hating him, but feeling solemn compassion for him as well, culminate to a head in the explosive ending and you'll never quite look at cops or apartment buildings the same, ever again.
a good movie with nice story. Its a horror + little bit affectionate. don't know why it is rated so low.It may not be for the horror lovers but is worth seeing. And it has very good and interesting story which many great movies lack.Its the story about love , affection , violence, and somewhat cute and romantic.I had watched it in 2008 on HBO at midnight. Great time to see these kind of movies. I wasn't disappointed at all by the movie.. the story is awesome and everything else is OK. i had forgot the name of movie , and recently I was searching for it and couldn't find it .I <more>
tried a lot describing plot and asking on yahoo answers but it seemed not many people had seen it. i even tried on IMDb by categorizing by horror and sorting through a large number of movies , but could't find again due to its poor rating ?? . Then one day I goggled " horror + violence +apartment + neighbor + prison " as these were the words describing the plot , and Bingo ,I found the movie. hope to see it one more time.
One of the best Asian horror remakeI was fortunate enough to view the film during the Cannes Film Festival. And it was received by the critics and audiences with open arms. The original film, "Sigaw", was the first Filipino horror for a long time to be very atmospheric.Directed by the original film's director, Yam Laranas, "The Echo" is a very fine and atmospheric film like the original. The changes from the original was obvious and was probably done to expand the character histories.Delivering very frightening chills, "The Echo" is a step up to your average <more>
Outstanding acting by Jesse Bradford! (by moviereviewerframe)
I am done with Horror films! But there is still few productions available to enjoy! This film was something for me to learn a lot. I love the colour grading, folley works, effects, sound effects, cinematography and of course- the direction. I loved the film! But what I didn't like is the poster where a little girl appears. I think this poster is much better than other one with the little girl .
