Editorial Reviews

During a Turkish archeological dig early last century, an ancient board game said to have entertained demons was unearthed. Now nearly 90 years later, a group of vacationing friends -- including a cynic (Danielle Harris of HALLOWEEN), a rich jerk (James Duval of DONNIE DARKO), a slutty starlet (Mircea Monroe of ''Hart Of Dixie''), a jock (Nick Menell of FRIDAY THE 13TH) and prudish twin sisters (Electra & Elise Avellan of GRINDHOUSE) -- discover the game hidden in an old house on a remote Maine island. And with a roll of the dice, their darkest secrets will unleash all the greed, jealousy and lusts of Hell itself. Richard Tyson (BLACK HAWK DOWN) and Robert Patrick (TERMINATOR 2: JUDGEMENT DAY) co-star in this gory shocker that Horror.com calls ''good ol' fashioned horror movie fun!''

Entertaining B horror movie that has some decent special effects. The Movie is based on a ancient game that twits and manipulate your emotions and beliefs to Kill everyone. The acting is not superb but it does the job as far as character development. The story gets a little shaky and not quite clear as to why certain things happen but the special effects help with the story and keep you somewhat interested. Like I said its good for a one time spin around the DvD player and then its time to walk away.

Why are early reviews for movies like this 5 stars every single time? First of all don't be fooled by the cover--this isn't a monster movie. It has a premise similar to the 2009 dud Open Graves where a bunch of friends play a sinister antique board game with deadly consequences. A character in the prologue states that the game alters reality, but either because of lack of imagination or low budget all the game seems to do in the movie is turn the characters against each other so they erupt in a murderous rage. The game itself is cool looking and the set-up appears poised to create the Jumanji of horror films but The Black Waters of Echo's Pond turns out to be little more than a tiresome slasher film with all of the characters turning on each other and eventually becoming murderer or victim--or both. The acting is uneven at best--four of the eight main characters are inexplicably played by actors with very thick accents, which completely negates whatever attempts they may be making at acting. Danielle Harris is top-billed but underutilized. This isn't a terrible rental but it's pretty mediocre.

I wasn't really sure what to expect going into THE BLACK WATERS OF ECHO'S POND. The cover artwork looks awesome, with the rippling demonic face, and the plot is definitely intriguing. Add in the fact that I love Danielle Harris, and of course this was a must-see. I'm happy to report the film is just as good as I was hoping it would be, and it's a welcome addition to the horror genre.

I'm a HUGE sucker for just about anything involving archaeology, so when that and horror combine, the results can be nirvana. I say `can be' because there are some real stinkers out there...but this one definitely does not fit into that category.

THE BLACK WATERS OF ECHO'S POND is shot well and the production value looks high. The sets are tight and the whole film has a nice foreboding feel to it, almost as if the tension is a physical thing that clings to your skin. The acting is great as well, with the lovely and talented Danielle Harris stealing the show. Yes, I'm biased towards her because I really like her, but she does an excellent job, as always.

The special effects are top notch as well. The demonic eyes and teeth used in this film are very realistic and look great onscreen. The gore is also nice and there's plenty of carnage to go around; there's even an excellent scene where one of the characters used a chainsaw to saw another in half!

My sole complaint about THE BLACK WATERS OF ECHO'S POND is that nothing is really explained at the end. There's a lot of insinuation that the audience should infer from the opening scenes, but that still doesn't explain much about what is actually going on. This didn't necessarily ruin the movie for me, but I would have enjoyed it more if explanation had been given.

The film opens in 1927 with the discovery of Pan's temple. There are instructions for a game which is the Rite of Pandemonium. They create the game, play it, hide it, and all die. In modern times 9 young adults discover the game and play it on isolated Beacon's Island, Maine. The game is similar to truth or dare, except there are illusions and ideas which play to people's worse fears causing deadly rage.

The film is similar to others out there. The early effects and sets were low budget. I had to laugh at the fake opening sunrise. Once the party gets into the game, it becomes interesting, but doesn't bring it home. Perhaps because it promised us a twin foursome but then doesn't deliver.

Good horror rental. $9.96 Walmart. 3 1/2 stars

The trailer was absolutely awesome, and the concept ("Jumanji meets Evil Dead") piqued my interests in this movie like nobody's business! *BUT*... it seemed as if "EVERY" review I'd ever come across about this movie (it's "stupid story," its "dull acting," its "gaping plot holes," etc.) were enough to put me off from making one of my classic "Impulse Buys" of a movie I'd been unfamiliar with and knew next to nothing about. So for the past couple of years I'd waited... and waited... and waited... and waited for an opportunity to actually watch this movie in some form or manner in which I would not be required to part with so much as a single dime, just so I could see with my own eyes whether the trailer was somehow misleading me or if perhaps all of the "angry reviewers" were really on top of their game or if they had all just been smoking from the same bong. Well... I'd just very recently had that opportunity to finally catch this movie in its entirety in one of the "No Pay to Play" methods I use to determine whether or not a movie is going to be good enough for me to consider adding to my own personal DVD library... and it turned out that the almighty "reviewers" were in fact attempting to dissuade me from something that was so intense and so deep that I have to wonder in all honesty if they'd even watched the same movie as I had?

Yes, we all know how easy it is to pan a movie (no pun intended) when you've viewed it as a "freebie" and have invested nothing in it financially; it's something else entirely when after watching a movie under such circumstances you declare, "HELL YEAH! I'm DEFINITELY going to go out and *BUY* that one for myself!
