The Echo Game: New Stills, Trailer, and Film Fest/Distro Info
We haven't heard much about Brian Feeney's The Echo Game since the first of the year, but there's been a lot going on behind the scenes of the flick -- such as acquiring distribution, cutting a new trailer, and prepping for a film fest run. Read on for the details.
First off, The Echo Game was picked up for distribution by MTI Home Video and has officially been rated R by the MPAA for "bloody violence, some nudity, brief sexuality and language".
In addition, the flick will screening at the 7th annual EERIE HORROR FEST (Pennsylvania, October 7-10), the 2010 BIG BEAR HORROR FILM FESTIVAL (California, October 15-17), and the 5th annual SPOOKY MOVIE FILM FESTIVAL (Washington, DC, October 21-25). Further festival dates are still to be announced.
The Echo Game stars Alisha Seaton (The Fourth Kind) as a young mother who must protect her daughter from a murderous psychic with a twisted past. Shot over 15 days in and around Los Angeles, the film is a dark, supernatural slasher filled with startling imagery and a haunting original score by Austin Wintory (Grace).
It was shot by a group of indie filmmakers armed with an HPX 500 camera, a 40 thousand dollar budget, and the simple intent to make a good old-fashioned supernatural thriller. Despite having limited resources, they we were able to bring together a very talented group of people. Director Brian Feeney has been friends with actress Alisha Seaton, as well as producers Doug Spice, Asa Shumskas-Tait, and John William Ross, since college. The rest of the principal cast is rounded out by Jeannie Bolét, Melissa Lee, David Ghilardi, Randy Patman, and Judy Clement as "Anne Cassavettes." Jeffrey Waldron served as Director of Photography.
