Mulberry Woods is a fictional town in Nevada, USA which is the residence of Tuck, Alex and Munch, the film's three main characters, and the location of the spaceship Echo uses to leave Earth. Earth to Echo was actually shot in Santa Clarita California, which can be seen in a billboard advertising dental care for a few seconds during the film. See more »
When the group of kids is heading back to the construction site, the movie shortly plays a view of the Superstition Mountains. The Superstition Mountains are in the Phoenix area of Arizona, and definitely NOT in Nevada. This is a clear geological oversight. See more »
All right, mom, I'm leaving. Spending the night at Alex's house so we can play a new video game.
Have whatever you want, honey.
You know what, I lied, actually. We're gonna ride our bikes out into the desert, at night, alone. Without supervision.

Okay, see you then, sweetie.
Also rob a bank. Go to Mexico. Maybe even start a new life.

I really liked this film. It's a fun Kids adventure in the vein of Goonies, Big, No Batteries Required or The Last Star Fighter. I guess similarities could be drawn with ET but only in as far as it's a Sci Fi film with kids in it. It's funny, well acted by the kids and I found it heart warming and exciting. Its not so much "found footage" as shot and narrated by the kids themselves but in a far more watchable way. I guess if you're not a fan of that then his isn't the film for you. It's not big budget but in now way is it "low budget". It relies on the actors to tell the story and on the story itself, not on millions of pounds worth of special effects. What special effects it uses are very well done and integrated seamlessly. Definitely worth watching!!!
