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.Read more ›
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
Parental Guide: F-bomb, brief sex, sex talk, shower nudity (Mircea Monroe, worth the wait)
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!Read more ›
