Director: Khalil Sullins.
Running Time: 90 minutes
Synopsis: Two young scientists (Stroppel & Ahr) discover a way for computers to read human thoughts, but as they perfect their method it appears some nefarious sorts have their own plans for such work.
Listening is not the kind of independent science fiction film that wants to exist quietly and garner a cult audience. It is instead a fantastic and intelligent effort that holds a mirror up to its Hollywood counterparts and shows how budgets, names, and effects, mean nothing when pitched against a compelling story and those involved actually giving a damn. It would serve film fans well to note the name of director and writer Khalil Sullins, as it is highly unlikely that he will not be making bigger waves in the future, and on a larger scale. »

Feeling wide awake while asleep, she can't move... and she's not alone. Anna Parker's sleep paralysis strikes with a supernatural slant in Echoes, the feature film writing and directing debut of Nils Timm. With Echoes now available on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment, we had a chance to talk with Timm, who discussed taking a unique approach to the haunted house sub-genre, portraying the different social masks people wear in real life, his personal brush with sleep paralysis during filming, and much more.
What attracted you to the subject of sleep paralysis?
Nils Timm: Before I wrote Echoes, I was researching a lot of stories about lucid dreaming. I was experimenting with that a little bit myself, read everything about it, and interviewed several people in circles of friends and colleagues about this. At least one out of every six or seven people would say, ‘Yes, »

In the indie horror game, narrative storytelling is everything. Even on the tightest budget, with the most inexperienced actors, a filmmaker can still pump out the next big genre “thing” as long as it’s a story worth telling. Granted, the other aspects can’t equate to kindergarten bullshit and film school inexperience, but when a story is That tasty, so indulgently succulent and juicy, it’s hard to keep from scarfing it down.
With that said, Echoes is not horror’s next smash hit. It lacks the creative ingenuity of It Follows, the charm of Turbo Kid, and the practical goriness of Stitches, but it’s interesting enough to keep viewers at attention for a brisk hour and a half. I know that doesn’t sound like a ringing endorsement, but compared to the heap of sloppy continuity-inept nightmares I’ve been forced to sit through recently, Nils Timm »

I’m a big fan of surrealist horror, whether it be any of the good A Nightmare On Elm Street entries, or even recent films, like last year’s Mr. Jones. While I dig realistic slasher films and they tend to scare the living hell out of me (the monster living next door is much scarier than the ones in our dreams), there’s something about getting lost inside of a fantastical dream world where a film’s protagonist has the fight off whatever may or may night be real or in their dreams. Enter Nils Timm’s Echoes, a film that took the festival circuit by storm, and one that the always reliable gang at Anchor Bay is ready to unleash on horror fans via DVD/Bluray this April 14th. With a cast filled by Steven Brand (“Teen Wolf,” The Scorpion King), Kate French (Channeling, “Gossip Girl,” “One Tree Hill »
