Movie Info

After a long absence, Donovan returns home to discover events from his past are repeating. Plagued by the idea of déjà vu, Donovan is convinced his young neighbour and her mother will be killed on the 30th anniversary of his wife and daughter's death. Struggling to unlock the pattern, Donovan tries to convince his brother-in-law, Finnley to help prevent a similar tragedy. When his facts don't add up, Donovan's sanity is questioned.

Critic Reviews for Donovan's Echo

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Halfway home to being a really good little clairvoyant thriller, Donovan's Echo would have benefited greatly from a Stephen King rewrite.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

Billed as a "supernatural thriller," Donovan's Echo feels more like an overwrought made-for-TV movie.

Top Critic

The indie flick's heart is in the right place but, unfortunately, its arteries are seriously clogged up with syrupy sappiness.

Georgia Straight

...a passable short film that's been painfully, needlessly stretched out to feature length.

It's technically sound, and features strong performances, but the storytelling is a bit weak.

Audience Reviews for Donovan's Echo

As a half hour fable it would be passable but to drag it out over another hour???? There is just not enough meat on the bone.
