Awakening to Blu-ray™ and DVD April 14

Anchor Bay Entertainment is happy to bring horror fans the latest in horror, “Echoes.” The film is an official selection of the FilmQuest Film Festival and New York City International Film Festival. The film has won awards for Best Actress, Best Director and Best Screenplay accolades and is finally coming to DVD and Blu-ray April 14.

“Echoes” is the film directorial debut of Nils Timm, who also wrote the screenplay. The film stars Steven Brand (“Teen Wolf,” “The Scorpion King”), Kate French (“Channeling,” “Gossip Girl,” “One Tree Hill”), Steve Hanks (“12/12/12,” “Hold Your Breath”) and Billy Wirth (“Chicago P.D.,” “The Lost Boys”). The film promises to keep viewers on the edge of their seat, taking a look at the blurry line between dreams and reality and what could happen if horrifying dreams invaded or waking moments.

“Struggling with horrifying, sleep-paralysis induced visions, Anna (French), a young writer, retreats with her boyfriend (Brand) to an isolated yet beautiful glass house in the desert. Hoping that the desert vistas surrounding her will spur her creative juices, she welcomes the opportunity to stay behind when her boyfriend must return to the city for urgent business.

However, Anna’s sleep paralysis does not abate, despite the calming environment. And now, her attacks are accompanied by a mysterious figure, caked with dirt as if it was made of sand itself. As the visions intensify, she finds herself on the verge of losing her mind…or is she being lead to uncover a life-threatening secret?”

“Echoes” is available for $26.99 (Blu-ray) and $22.98 (DVD). Pre-book is March 11.

Describing the film won’t give you the true justice of what kind of horror you’re in for. Check out some of the stills below (and the boxart) to get a real sense of the film. Keep in mind that while all of these images are creepy, some of them could trigger blood and eye phobias.
