“The next time you hear a knock at your door, be careful... you never know what's on the other side.”
This acclaimed Filipino thriller Sigaw (The Echo) is remade into a movie-for-Hollywood. Yam Laranas, the co-writer and director for Sigaw, directed this remake. Screening begins September 30, 2009 here in Philippines and will star Jesse Bradford of the ‘Flags of our Fathers’ fame.
On the premiere night, I found myself jumping on seat at certain scene. I admit Laranas had me freaked out. This feeling is reinforced when it occurs again and there is no child, just the camera hinting at the movements of someone. An excellent method of building unease in the audience, lighting and camerawork are excellent. I must also say, it is a real stunner -worth seeing at least once.
