Film: The Echo

An ex-convict attempts to get his life back on track but when he moves into his deceased Mother’s apartment strange events begin to occur.

Bobby Reynolds (Jesse Bradford) starts to hear weird noises in the old apartment and then there’s the neighbours to worry about. A Mother and her young daughter seem to be at the mercy of the abusive man of the house, but Bobby daren’t confront him as he just happens to be a cop.

While all this is happening he also attempts to hold down a job and rekindle an old romance.

Bradford gives a decent performance in this compact chiller but the good work done in the first 45 minutes unfortunately makes way for yet another scary kid story. Am I the only one who’s had enough of them?

That being said there are plenty of worse horrors out there and this works well as a late night popcorn ghost story.

The Echo is available on DVD in the UK now.

Ric’s Rating: Good.
