New on DVD: Beware hidden horrors of taking ‘Night Swim’

Tribune News Service (TNS)

A supernatural thriller centered on a haunted swimming pool tops the DVD releases for the week of April 9.

“Night Swim”: A family moves into a new home, not suspecting the frights that lurk in the hidden deeps of their backyard pool. With Wyatt Russell and Kerry Condon.

“The new house, somewhere in the Twin Cities, bodes well at first, but the evil pool starts dropping hints early and often,” writes Chicago Tribune film critic Michael Phillips in his review. “A mysterious battery-operated toy boat appears on the pool’s surface, puttering around on its own. Unseen or barely glimpsed creatures from the beyond — human, or formerly so — yank adults and children alike into the water. The idea in ‘Night Swim,’ directed by second-time feature director Bryce McGuire from a script he wrote with Rod Blackhurst, hinges on the sinister underwater realm beneath the spring-fed pool itself.”
