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 (Flags of Our Fathers, 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 emanating from the building, Bobby's terror mounts as he begins to suspect that his neighbors had a sinister hand in his mother's death . . . and could come for him next.

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.

Though not a great movie this is a solid, honest effort for those looking for something with a bit more resonance in a horror movie.

Jesse Bradford (who could easily pass for Colin Ferrell's brother) plays Bobby. Recently out of prison, he's trying to put his life back together. He moves into his recently deceased mother's apartment and weird stuff starts happening. He's seeing and hearing things that, as it turns out, are not really happening. But his girlfriend and others in the building are experiencing the same hallucinations involving a resident cop who may have beaten his wife to death. So what's the scoop?

That's where the movie falters. It does a decent enough job of building things and planting clues, but in any movie of this sort everything usually builds to a punchline. Here the punchline never comes. The movie just sort of stops and things aren't resolved.

This has a lot going for it. The performances are good. The set direction is great. The building where most events take place is an old New York City building long in need of repair. Everything has a run down, decrepit feeling to it which adds to the overall sense of despair. The shuddering, Japanese style, ghostly apparitions have been overplayed in too many horror movies as of late. Thank God they keep it to a minimum here. But, overall, this has a good look and feel to it. The music score is good and, overall, it's a very professional effort. Had the producers figured a way to provide a more satisfying ending, this would be worth another star.

I personally liked this movie but it seems like it drags on and takes forever to get to the point at times. There also aren't enough scary parts in the movie that make you seriously scared. The Protagonist was okay but it seems that there simply isn't enough character interaction in the movie for the story to have any relevance to the audience. I really didn't seem to care about the back story till the end of the movie. I also hate movies that seem to be stuck in only one spot the entire time. It seems that the Main character spends all of his time at the hotel and or work. I don't know about you but as soon as I got out of jail I would have hit the bar and had a beer. A Suspense Thriller needs to move a little quicker and have parts in it that make you relate to the character more.

This is a good ghost story, although it was an extremely dark movie. The acting was good, although the supporting actors and actresses seemed to be the ones that gave the story credibility due to their acting skills. I liked the ending as well. It was not a horror movie, but it was a ghost story. The horror was displayed through a heinous crime that had been committed without final closure; producing an unending cycle fueled by the callousness of indifference

The only flaw to me was with the main actor, so I gave it four stars. His acting was o.k., he just didn't make his character real enough to bring out any empathy in the viewer.

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.

I love this genre of movies and the description sounded too good to pass up. Some have said it starts off slow. I guess it does depending on whether you want to be jumping out of your seat from scene one, or let the movie build to keep you interested in what's about to happen next. I liked the way it built up because it held my interest to try and figure out what was going to happen next.

'The Echo' is not your typical ghost/paranormal/horror movie. Yet it still has just enough elements of all three. I don't want to say too much about the movie because I don't want to give anything away or spoil it for others. What I will say is this has every element of every scary movie, every ghost movie, and every creepy paranormal movie. The only difference is it's done in a way that actually has a point and real meaning beyond a curse or an angry spirit terrorizing ppl just for the sake of being creepy.

There's a real sense of purpose and meaning to what's going on that we don't find out until the end. Anyone who says this movie is predictable is wrong. I highly and strongly recommend 'The Echo' for anyone who likes this genre to begin with. But the twist will leave you thinking long after the movie is over. Definitely worth adding to any movie collection.

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 tenants 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 tenants, 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.
