Freshly out of prison, Bobby returns home, but home is just not the same. His mother died a solitary death while Bobby was inside, isolated by her own growing madness and paranoia. His friends have either moved away or won’t return his calls, and the girl Bobby loves seems vaguely afraid to have him around. And so while New York City ensures that Bobby is always surrounded with life, he is nevertheless on his own. And maybe it’s the solitude getting to him, or maybe the memories of his mother, but before too long Bobby is plagued by the same sounds that his mother complained of, a situation only made worse by the frequent sounds of violence from the apartment next door…
Fantasia was proud to present the Canadian premiere of Yam Laranas’ Filipino horror film THE ECHO a couple years back and now we are now even more pleased to present the world premiere of Laranas’ English-language remake of his original film. A moody, atmospheric piece of work, Laranas’ film puts a unique spin on the Asian ghost story by rooting the horror not in technology, not even so much in his ghosts, but in the everyday violence that you simply cannot help but encounter when living in the big city. Laranas puts a familiar face on evil and that makes it all the more effective.
