After a long absence, Donovan returns home to discover events from his past are repeating.

Critic Reviews for Donovan's Echo

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Admittedly, the film is bolted to an intriguing psychological/paranormal premise, but the narrative trudges along in a fitful monotony of somber tones and stodgy pacing.

Greenwood is excellent, as always. And a carefully measured performance by Sonja Bennett as Maggie's confused, protective mother contributes to a sense of stampeding panic.

February 24, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Billed as a "supernatural thriller," Donovan's Echo feels more like an overwrought made-for-TV movie.

February 23, 2012 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Donovan's Echo is a real surprise package - stylish, compelling and intensely performed, showcasing a powerful and exciting new voice in filmmaking.

September 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Audiences should be enthralled by most of what takes place, especially because of the stellar acting.

July 17, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The indie flick's heart is in the right place but, unfortunately, its arteries are seriously clogged up with syrupy sappiness.
