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!''

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lame September 11, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Thrill Ride July 16, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I had the very good luck to catch this when it had it's almost no theater release over a year ago. The story is about a group of friends that get together after a long separation. They decide to play a board game in the hope of relieving the tension in the group with horrible consequences. Dark things lurk in the night and the game has released them. Great performances from James Duval, Electra and Elise Avellan, Danielle Harris, and a great cameo from the T2 Terminator himself Robert Patrick. This film for some inexplicable reason has taken almost 3 to 4 years to get this release and it is very much overdue.
