Not gonna lie; Night Swim looks like a collection of all the things that should and will scare the crap out of you involving a swimming pool. I used to be afraid of sharks in the water when I was little. This movie looks a bit scarier than that. It comes from Atomic Monster and Blumhouse. Night Swim releases in theaters on January 5th, 2024.

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 (Oscar® nominee Kerry Condon, The Banshees of Inisherin), teenage daughter Izzy (Amélie Hoeferle, this fall’s The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes) and young son Elliot (Gavin Warren, Fear the Walking Dead).

Night Swim is written and directed by Bryce McGuire and is produced by James Wan.

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

That trailer is truly terrifying on a lot of levels. It looks like we’re getting a nice suburban set monster pool movie.
