...just another unpleasant, interminably paced horror effort that's been modeled after (superior) predecessors like The Ring and Dark Water.

Audience Reviews for The Echo

This movie started out decent. However it seemed the scriptwriter could not come up with an ending, so they just faded out at the end. Could have been a better movie if they had tied up the ends. This seems to happen alot in these kinds of movies. It's a shame...

A very scary ghost film with creepy scenes\imagery. Interesting story, too.

"The Echo" is a very fine and atmospheric film. Delivering some frightening chills and good and believable acting.
It s a decent step up to after a couple of awful Asian horror remake that were release lately.

An ex-convict settles at his dead mother's apartment and tries to get back to his old life, but things get more complicated when he begins hearing noises and seeing people in the next room.

This horror movie is based on an origina...l Filipino thriller entitled Sigaw. Hollywood producers stick to their reputation of claiming "re-making" Asian movies but actually, it's just retaining the main characters and a completely different plot is spun. I must say that I have mixed feelings about this movie; while I couldn't be more proud to see hollywood take interest in a locally-made movie, I just didn't think it was as scary as I had heard it would be. The scares mostly rely on sound which I found irritating.
