A decades-old discovery causes death and destruction in “The Black Waters of Echo’s Pond,” a new horror/thriller from Anchor Bay Films. The film, to be released on Blu-ray and DVD Sept. 10, is directed by Gabriel Bologna and stars scream queen Danielle Harris (“Halloween 4” and “Halloween 5,” “The Victim,” “Hatchet II” and “Hatchet III”), genre favorite Robert Patrick (“Terminator 2,” “Walk the Line,” “Jayne Mansfield’s Car”) and James Duval (“Donnie Darko,” “Independence Day,” “Gone in Sixty Seconds”).

The film focuses on a group of friends who, while on vacation, discover a mysterious element of a Turkish archaeological expedition from 1927 that resulted in several gruesome deaths:

“In the film, nine friends take a holiday at a Victorian home on a private island off the coast of Maine. There, they uncover a game first discovered as part of an archaeological expedition from over 80 years ago that resulted in a series of mysterious – and grisly – deaths. What they don’t realize is that when played, the ancient artifact brings out the worst in each of them. Jealousy, greed, hatred, lust, all of the things they keep buried deep inside themselves rise to the surface and come to a boil. A warning to all those who start the game: it just might finish you!”
