Reviews:

Echoes of Fear is equally an elegant throwback to horror films like The Innocents, and a modern look at the fine line between the natural world and the supernatural. And it has perfectly timed moments of suspense and scares. I say scares with a smile.” S.A. Bradley, Hellbent for Horror

“A consistently absorbing horror/mystery punctuated by genuine jolts.” Michael Gingold, Rue Morgue

“This is an intricately woven tale full of mystery, intrigue, and gripping suspense. There’s a lot of clever red herrings and misdirection thrown at you to keep you guessing, an elaborate labyrinth of twists and turns that keeps you absolutely enthralled from start to finish.” Matthew Solomon, Pop Horror

“The script is smart and the characters are well developed. The majority of the film focuses on psychological and supernatural horror, with some occasions for terrific practical effects and makeup work […] The performances are all solid, but Robinson is outstanding as Alisa, nailing each of her character’s myriad emotions…” The Scariest Things

“The Avenet-Bradleys have distilled the essence of the haunted house film to create the first hour of Echoes of Fear. The care they put into taking what the viewers expect and doing it right makes all the difference. To many films simply throw cliches up on the screen and walk through them lifelessly. Here the situations are carefully set up and pulled off so you jump even when you know where the story is going.” Voices from the Balcony

Release:

Echoes of Fear received its world premiere at the 18th annual Shriekfest Horror Festival, the longest-running horror festival in Los Angeles, where it won Best Supernatural Horror Feature. Fourteen festivals have since followed and the film has won six Best Feature Awards.
