America does not have a copyright on haunted house stories, as this modern Mexican horror film reminds us.
A young woman is in dire need of cash. A child is in a new and unfamiliar place. And there’s a dog that links them both as they struggle to spend two nights in a house that really should be condemned.
Known here as Echoes In the Dark, this movie proves to me that no one does scary dolls quite like Mexican filmmakers. They still make me jump in their films while they come off boring up here in the U.S.
This was Sam Reyes first full-length film and while it’s not groundbreaking, it’s competent and delivers a few scares. You can check it out on Tubi.
