About The Echo Game

When her adopted daughter’s psychic powers attract the wrong kind of attention, April (Alisha Seaton) must save both herself and her child from a crazed scientist. Together with her friend Casey (Jeannie Bolét) and a hard nosed detective (David Ghilardi), April must track down a woman long thought dead (Angela Landis) in order to solve a mystery and save their own skin. April’s only hope for survival is to uncover the secret of her daughter’s past and beat the killers at their own game in this terrifying thriller.

Shot over 15 days in and around Los Angeles, THE ECHO GAME is a dark, supernatural slasher filled with startling imagery and a haunting original score by USC alumnus Austin Wintory (Grace). The film is the first feature from director Brian Feeney who graduated from the USC School of Cinema-Television Critical Studies program in 2002. Lead actress Alisha Seaton is a graduate of USC's theater program and producers Doug Spice, Asa Shumskas-Tait, and John Ross are graduates of the Cinema School's production program, as is Director of Photography Jeffrey Waldron.
