An entire plethora of terror hotties, including the lovely Iza Calzado, will be joining together to bring us an interesting little tale of domestic abuse and curses from beyond in “The Echo”, a remake of the once again Filipino horror film “Sigaw”, which I’m told translates into “The Scream”.
Interestingly enough, the original director Yam Laranas will also direct the remake, and Iza Calzado was also in the original. The story, as I’m told from Bloody Disgusting, revolves around a young ex-con who moves into an old apartment building, only to learn his neighbor is an abusive police officer who savagely beats his wife and daughter. When the ex-con tries to intervene, he becomes trapped in a curse.
Which sounds like it could be interesting enough–there are already comparisons to the original Ju-On, which I consider to be one of the scariest movies ever released. Oh, sure, I doubt it’ll ever be topped but anyone who’s willing to try gets bonus credit in my book.
