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. Is he losing his mind, or running out of time?

Critic Reviews for Donovan's Echo

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Admittedly, the film is bolted to an intriguing psychological/paranormal premise, but the narrative trudges along in a fitful monotony of somber tones and stodgy pacing.

Greenwood is excellent, as always. And a carefully measured performance by Sonja Bennett as Maggie's confused, protective mother contributes to a sense of stampeding panic.

February 24, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

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

February 23, 2012 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

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

March 6, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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

March 2, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

A moody psychological thriller that buries a couple of worthy ideas beneath a series of contrivances.
