Product Description

Product Description

Yam Laranas directs this horror following an ex-con as he attempts to readjust to life on the outside. Bobby (Jesse Bradford) has just been released from prison having served the sentence he was given for murdering a man who tried to rape his girlfriend Alyssa (Amelia Warner). He returns to his mother's apartment in New York City, which has been vacant since her death. Bobby finds the apartment strange. He discovers drops of blood that appear to be fresh and hears continual arguments from the apartment next door, which suggest to him that a man is abusing his wife and daughter. When he finally snaps and calls the police things become even stranger: the apartment next door is vacant, the police tell him. Where, then, are the noises coming from?

Actually, a `slow burner' denotes something that takes a while to get going. Sadly, `The Echo' goes so slowly through most of the film, that you're probably asleep by the time the last act (and by `last act' I mean `last few minutes') comes along (either that or turned it off).

The film follows a man recently released from prison, who returns home to find all sorts of spooky goings on in his apartment. The film start predominantly with him wandering from room to room, trying to work out where various noises are coming from. It is nicely shot, which does give it a suitable creepy atmosphere and, every now and again, there is the odd eerie scene.

However, it's all too little and not often enough. Whatever spookiness is too sparse to really be bothered about. The ending isn't bad. There's the obligatory `twist' (or should I say `explanation'?) regarding what's going on, but, by the time it happens, will you care?

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.

Gripping atmospheric ghost story on the possession theme which builds slowly to a dramatic finish. Well acted and enjoyable movie.

I watched it right to the end and thought, why did I bother. It just didn't do it for me. Started off promising, then just petered off.

I knew The Echo would be worth a watch with Jesse Bradford in the lead; an impressive filmography already under his belt. Bobby newly released from jail for a yet unknown crime, goes to live at his since-departed mother's apartment as per his parole conditions.

Before we even get to the horror film proper, The Echo does well from the outset of depicting a man whose life has been put on stasis while everything around him has changed beyond recognition; discovering his stigma as old-friends no longer want to associate with him, and employers wanting to give him a wide berth. In this regard it's definitely one-part social commentary, exploring crime and punishment (or rather the effects of on the perpetrator).

Of course, once Bobby moves in, things begin to go awry as things go bump in the night. What I liked about The Echo was an indistinct air of things not being quite right, even in the scenes where nothing scary actually happens; mainly down to some terrific camerawork which borders on the surreal at times. What it lacks in out-and-out gore it more than makes up for in chilling scares.

Likewise, the music is effective yet minimal. The Echo eschews the use of a loud, discordant score to cue-card the bits where the audience is supposed to jump. Here it used to provide a subtle otherworldliness to compliment the deft cinematography.

In essence, it's more of a spooky whodunnit; first to find out what actually happened to the mother, and to uncover the secrets that lurk within the apartment block before he himself falls victim.

'The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing'.
