Details are understandably being kept under wraps. However, the press release announcing the film has given us a tease of the evil that’s sure to come. The film is expected to be “a supernatural thriller built around the hidden source of terror found in an iconic backyard swimming pool.” Sounds spooky!
This tidbit alone should make you excited to see “Night Swim.” Nobody really likes to talk about it, but pools are kind of terrifying when you think about it. A lot can go wrong in a swimming pool, from drownings to concrete head smashes, if you’re not careful. And before anyone asks, yes, I still think a lot about the pool disembowelment scene from “The Final Destination.” Doesn’t everyone?
Needless to say, the idea of a swimming pool death trap is an intriguing one, and if “M3GAN” proved anything, it’s that even the silliest concept can deliver some effective scares. Couple that in with the genuine talents of Russell and Condon, and you’ve already piqued my interest.
If you’re looking for even better news, here’s some: You’ll be able to experience “Night Swim” in theaters! The film is expected to begin production in the coming weeks for a release on January 19, 2024.
