Atomic Monster and Blumhouse, the renowned producers behind M3GAN, are set to make waves in the horror genre with their latest supernatural thriller, “Night Swim.” This spine-chilling cinematic experience, based on the acclaimed 2014 short film by Rod Blackhurst and Bryce McGuire, promises to be a plunge into the depths of inescapable terror.
The film stars Wyatt Russell, known for his role in “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” as Ray Waller—a former major league baseball player grappling with early retirement due to a degenerative illness. Ray, along with his concerned wife Eve (portrayed by Oscar® nominee Kerry Condon), teenage daughter Izzy (Amélie Hoeferle), and young son Elliot (Gavin Warren), moves into a new home. As Ray secretly yearns for a return to pro ball, he convinces Eve that the shimmering backyard swimming pool is not just for fun but a potential source of physical therapy.
However, beneath the tranquil surface of the pool lurks a dark secret from the home’s past, ready to unleash a malevolent force that will drag the Waller family into a nightmarish abyss. “Night Swim” explores the intersection of family hopes and fears, intertwining the innocence of a backyard pool with the sinister supernatural.
The film is written and directed by Bryce McGuire, also known for the upcoming film “Baghead,” and boasts heavyweight producers James Wan and Jason Blum. James Wan recognized for his work on the iconic horror franchises “Saw,” “Insidious,” and “The Conjuring,” teams up with Jason Blum, the mastermind behind the Halloween films, “The Black Phone,” and “The Invisible Man,” to bring this gripping tale to life.
“Night Swim” is not just a plunge into a backyard pool; it’s a descent into the unnerving depths of horror, promising to captivate audiences with its sinister secrets and spine-tingling suspense. As viewers brace themselves for the chilling unknown, this supernatural thriller is set to make a splash in the realm of horror cinema.
