Night Swim (2024, D: McGuire, EP: Wan/Blum) S: Wyatt Russell, Kerry Condon



Night Swim
Coming Soon to Theaters

No running. No diving. No lifeguard on duty. No swimming after dark.

Atomic Monster and Blumhouse, the producers of M3GAN, high dive into the deep end of horror with the new supernatural thriller, Night Swim.

Based on the acclaimed 2014 short film by Rod Blackhurst and Bryce McGuire, the film stars Wyatt Russell (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) as Ray Waller, a former major league baseball player forced into early retirement by a degenerative illness, who moves into a new home with his concerned wife Eve (Oscarģ nominee Kerry Condon, The Banshees of Inisherin), teenage daughter Izzy (Amťlie Hoeferle, this fallís The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes) and young son Elliot (Gavin Warren, Fear the Walking Dead).

Secretly hoping, against the odds, to return to pro ball, Ray persuades Eve that the new homeís shimmering backyard swimming pool will be fun for the kids and provide physical therapy for him. But a dark secret in the homeís past will unleash a malevolent force that will drag the family under, into the depths of inescapable terror.

Night Swim is written and directed by Bryce McGuire (writer of the upcoming film Baghead) and is produced by James Wan, the filmmaker behind the Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring franchises, and Jason Blum, the producer of the Halloween films, The Black Phone and The Invisible Man. The film is executive produced by Michael Clear and Judson Scott for Wanís Atomic Monster and by Ryan Turek for Blumís Blumhouse.

Creepy end to that trailer. Why can’t more studios cut trailers like that? Keep it vague. Unlike the new Beekeeper trailer that basically gave the whole story.

This movie could definitely unlock some fears I have about swimming.

It also begs the question: how long would you continue playing ďMarco/PoloĒ if no one answers.

Not reviewing well at all The PG-13 rating and poor script seemed to have constrained this into being very mediocre.

I just got back from seeing it in Dolby. Is this complete trash and one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen? No.

It does have some creepy moments and jump scares. Kind of reminds me a little of The Amityville horror. But only with a pool.

But, it’s not a movie I’ll remember. I did think Wyatt Russell and Kerry Condon were both good.

My big question was How deep was that fucking Pool?

6 out of 10 and maybe a C-

Iíll stream this when it comes out just to see the explanation they give for people continuing to use the pool. With a haunted house movie, itís usually some version of people being not being able to move out financially. Or the house isnít haunted, a specific person is. I canít imagine a plausible scenario for continuing to use a haunted pool. The family must really, really love swimming.

Spoiler:
The pool had healing powers especially for the Wyatt Russell character.

Saw this a few weeks ago.

The core mythos of the film had potential.

It's a shame that everything that surrounds it feels like typical January Horror Dump fodder.

Surprised somebody like Kerry Condon would do this or she wanted the paycheck or this would made before her big break in Banshees of Isherin.
