Critic Reviews for The Black Waters of Echo's Pond
Give the movie a little credit for coming up with the idea of an ancient monster. And the design of the game is terrific. But this is just Jumanji with gore effects and topless scenes.
Pacing remains flat, exacerbated by bad dialogue, some subpar f/x and variable perfs.
There's relief in this type of poorly acted claptrap's adherence to movie mathematics, since each slain character is a sign that the movie is that much closer to a credit roll.
These waters are gory and sexually suggestive, and they overfloweth with unoriginality.
Watching people play a board game ain't ever going to be scary, and that's essentially what we have here -- after a laughably amateurish intro set in the 1920s, when the dice and cards are unearthed (in Turkey).
Audience Reviews for The Black Waters of Echo's Pond
An entertaining if somewhat stupid film featuring scream queen Danielle Harris, Robert Patrick, and the babysitter twins from Planet Terror, The Black Waters of Echo's Pond features nothing remotely original or scary but is an enjoyable little horror movie nonetheless
interesting movie using a game as part of its plot. Zathura and Jumanji were other movies where a game is the main part of the movie but this is much more gory.
You know, looking back at my review on The Crazies, and then after seeing this movie, I realize now that I really had no idea just how low horror films these days could go. I could stop right here with this review, because there isn't anything left to say; however if I haven't dampened your curiosity enough with the first sentence, I'll elaborate- but only if you promise to stay far away from this garbage heap (watch it if you must, just please... for the love of all that is holy, do not pay to see this movie. You're smart, find ways around paying your hard earned cash to see this fudge nugget). The Black Waters of Echo's Pond is nothing short of mind blowing. I mean the acting is mind blowing, the plot is mind blowing, and the fact that it's even legal to release a movie this unforgivingly atrocious is mind blowing. You know those cheap $5 horror bundle-pack movies you see at Walmart? You know, the ones filled with movies you've never heard of? We'll I'd be an outright liar to say that any of those are worse than The Black Waters of Echo's Pond. Just take any episode of goosebumps (but throw in some blood and bare human anatomy), mix in a little Jumanji, and top it off with any popular soap opera from the 90's, sprinkle in lots of unanswered questions (not like you'll actually care), and you have The Black Waters of Echo's Pond. It that sounds like fun to you, then by all means go indulge yourself. Just remember not to pay for it.
