Storyline

The Echo Game revolves around April Reilly, who receives a letter from her former lover Rachel, who was believed to have died ten years earlier. The letter and its urgent warning spark a chain of events that sends Aprils life spiraling out of control. For the past ten years, April has raised Rachel's biological daughter Sarah as her own. No one knows that Sarah is Rachel's daughter not even Sarah. When April begins to investigate Rachel's reappearance, a detective discovers the secret of Sarah and unwittingly brings the whole family to the attention of the relentless rogue scientist Anne Cassavettes and her two henchmen. Of course, it turns out that Sarah's mysterious new psychic visions and telekinetic abilities are not just coincidence. Written by Anonymous

The story was silly, but the acting was extremely competent
26 May 2014 | by ghamiltonsqSee all my reviews

The movie's production value reflected its low budget ($40,000 according to IMDb). There was little camera movement and most of the staging was indoors and in fairly close quarters. But hat's off to the cast who did a wonderful job holding the audience's attention despite the fact that the story violated the most fundamental rule of movie making. Never mix planes of reality. This specific tale moved from the mysterious to the supernatural, and thereby lost all credibility. Yet the cast remained earnest and believable through it all, and held my attention, even through the silly climax. With a bit more money to work with, Brian Feeney will no doubt deliver a better production. As for the cast, totally professional. If they haven't already established themselves as go-to performers, I have no doubt they eventually will.
