Teaser Poster for The Echo Remake

I remember reading about how the filmmakers and producers behind the Filipino horror movie “The Echo” created the film with the express purpose of getting it remade by Hollywood and cashing in on the then-current Asian horror movie craze. Well it’s been four years since the original “Echo” came out, and director Yam Laranas has finally gotten his wish — he’s not only gotten his movie remade by Hollywood, but he’s directing the remake himself. Yup. Thus ends our ability to bitch and whine about yet another unnecessary remake of a foreign movie.

So what’s it about?

An ex-con moves into an old apartment building, where he encounters a domestic problem involving a police officer, his wife, and their daughter. When he tries to intervene, however, a mysterious curse entraps him.

Starring Jesse Bradford, Amelia Warner, Iza Calzado, Louise Linton, Carlos Leon and Kevin Durand.

The boys over at Bloody-Disgusting has your first look at the teaser poster.

    The Echo, directed by young filmmaker Yam Laranas, certainly comes as a surprise to even those horror fans who claim to have seen everything. The film manages to be both artistic and terrifying. A rare and strangely powerful combination. – The Echo Movie Review, by Lance Curtis
