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

This movie's totally worth watching if you like thriller/horror/supernatural kinds of movies. Great production values, love the cinematography, and the hospital scenes are some of my favorite. For some reason I love horror scenes that take place in a hospital. Maybe I just find hospitals freaky anyway. You can tell this movie had a lot of love put into it. It looks like the director and his crew really had a love of 80's horror thrillers. I mean, what's not to love, right? The FX and gore really looks great, too, if you like that kind of thing. Totally a good rental movie for eating popcorn and watching late at night.
