Editorial Reviews

Fear and paranoia seep from every wall in this tense and creepy psychological thriller from the producers of The Ring and Dark Water. Jesse Bradford (W., Bring It On) is Bobby Walker, fresh out of prison and living in his dead mother's apartment as a condition of his parole. Plagued by eerie echoes of the dead trapped in the building, Bobby's terror mounts as he begins to suspect his neighbors had a sinister hand in his mother's death ... and could come for him next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must see for horror movie fans November 5, 2009
Format:DVD
This movie is one of the best horror movies I've seen. The movie is very creepy, tense and has some "jumpy" moments. The movie has a great plot, acting is very good and the ending is original. The moral of the story...the best part. Loved it.

~This review will appear in the June 2010 issue of Twisted Dreams Magazine~

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 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars I Should Have Rented It February 12, 2010
By Kimo
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is one of those movies to watch if you have absolutely nothing else to do. It's very slow, very predictable, etc., etc., just like most other so-called horror flicks. Waiting on Hollywood to release a worthwhile movie of any kind is like waiting on the next pass of Haley's Comet..., this is especially true with horror movies. The last time I saw a good horror movie was "The Descent." Now THAT was a horror movie!! It was so original..., so very unique., so well casted & directed, etc., etc. It's already a classic. Why can't Hollywood make more movies like that?? So, while we wait on another "The Descent" to be made, I guess we have to suffer with B-level stuff like "The Echo."

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good October 23, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie I got to watch on TV yesterday, I will be buying it. I was pleasantly surprised by this flick. I wont sit here and bore you with what it was about, because there are other reviews for that, but I would definitely recommend this movie for sure. I especially like the ending, which was also a surprise because most movies now a days have crappy endings, or cliffhanger ones, this one had a good "it's actually over" kind of ending. Don't expect any gore or anything, this movie is basically a ghost story. But I recommend the movie, go check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good horror movie! March 12, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this! The acting was good. The special effects was good. The story was good! There was no obviously fake blood squirting. No really terrible lines.

The story follows a man just released from prison (he was convicted of murder.) He moves into his late mother apartment and ghost-y things start happening.

Let's face it. Horror movies aren't made for breathtaking story lines. If you enjoy ghost/horror movies, you'll probably enjoy this movie as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would love to give this five stars... May 4, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
...but I won't. I felt cheated by the ending of this movie. The beginning was unique and atmospheric, mysterious and intriguing. But toward the end it turned into just another horror movie explanation ending, and the horror itself was more pathetic and a social commentary rather than scary. I don't think the secret of the building was worthy of the psychosis that it inspired in the residents of the building. I think the premise for the movie seemed better in the screen writer's mind than it looked on film. I would have rather not had any explanation at the end and I think I would have enjoyed this movie more. For me it was a letdown, but it was still worth the viewing.

3.0 out of 5 stars BOBBY, I NEED YOU May 13, 2012
Format:DVD
Bobby (Jesse Bradford) is out on parole for manslaughter. He is on his best behavior as he tries to get his life together. He starts to see his ex-girlfriend (Amelia Warner) on a friend basis. He has moved into the apartment that his mother lived and died in. The other tenets are not receptive to him. Bobby is haunted by dreams of his dead mother and hears strange noises no one else hears except for Joseph (Pruitt Taylor Vince) who, like the rest of the tenets, seems a bit off.

The movie finally escalates when he intervenes in a domestic issue that takes place in the adjacent apartment. The film has a haunting "Juon" quality about it. My biggest complaint is that the build-up is too slow. I got bored waiting for this film to take off. Jesse Bradford plays a rather lame Bobby.

F-bomb, No sex, or nudity. Violence to women.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ghosts!
Great haunting movie. Good acting (for the most part, one girl isn't so great). No nudity and I don't recall any curse words. Just a good spooky scary story.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Ghost Story
A pretty good ghost story with some definite suspense and mystery. The movie has some familiar and likable character actors in the background, which I always like.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stays true to the original
To be honest, I like the "Hollywood version" than the original. The main character here (Bobby) is more sympathetic and "layered" than the one in the original. Read more
