The Black Waters of Echo’s Pond is bad even by b-movie standards



Bad even by b-movie standards, The Black Waters of Echo’s Pond has a familiar premise. A group of twentysomethings head to a small Maine island to stay at a rustic cabin. When they discover an archaic game that’s a cross between “Truth or Dare” and “Spin the Bottle,” jealousy rears its ugly head. As the game progresses and secrets are revealed, things turn violent. Two sisters turn on their blonde friend (Mircea Monroe) whom they think has her sights set on their respective significant others. Trent (Walker Howard) accuses his girlfriend of cheating on him. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Through it all, the island’s vodka-drinking, trigger happy caretaker (Bay Village native Robert Patrick) tries to keep some semblance of order. The ensuing bloodbath doesn’t distinguish the film from any other slasher flick. The one thing that works in the film’s favor: the worst actors die first. *
