REVIEW: Night Swim (2024 Film) - Starring Wyatt Russell, Kerry Condon, Amélie Hoeferle, and Gavin Warren
Bryce McGuire's directorial debut, "Night Swim," attempts to plunge audiences into a chilling pool of supernatural horror with its intriguing premise and suspenseful atmosphere. While the film succeeds in creating some genuinely eerie moments and showcasing commendable performances from its cast, it struggles to break free from the constraints of its linear and somewhat predictable plot.
The narrative unfolds in 1992 as a young girl's quest to retrieve a toy boat from her family's pool takes a terrifying turn. Fast forward to the present day, and the Waller family, portrayed convincingly by Wyatt Russell, Kerry Condon, Amélie Hoeferle, and Gavin Warren, becomes entangled in a nightmarish web, compelled to retire early due to a degenerative illness, ex-baseball player Ray Waller relocates with his wife and two children to a new residence. Optimistic about the backyard swimming pool offering both recreation for the kids and therapeutic benefits for himself, Ray's hopes are dashed when a sinister secret from the house's history releases a malevolent force, plunging the family into a harrowing abyss of inescapable terror.
