The Echo – Movie Review
The Echo – Listen… Did you hear that?
The Echo is a remake of Filipino Horror movie Sigaw (2004), which was also directed by Yam Laranas.
Jesse Bradford stars as Bobby Reynolds. Bobby is recently released from prison after doing a stint for killing a guy who attempted to rape his girlfriend (played by Amelia Warner) in a restroom. Having nowhere else to live, he moves to the old apartment in East Village, New York, where his lonely mother lived and passed away. He finds a job as mechanic at the Houston Auto Repair shop owned by the supportive Hector Rodriguez (Carlos Leon) and tries to rebuild his life.
Everything seems to be going great for Bobby, but soon after moving back into the apartment he discovers that the apartment he lives in is having strange occurrences. He finds drops of blood, hears noises of things that are not there, and at the same time, he is also concerned about his apartment neighbor; a mother and daughter who is being victimized by an abusive live-in partner.
He soon discovers that the next door apartment is actually empty and he is haunted by the ghosts of the deceased family that was not helped by the neighbors. From that point, the movie gets into the creepy as Bobby’s sanity is put to the test and if he will intervene in the strange hauntings to end the curse.
