Storyline

School's out, exams are over, and it's time for real life to begin. But before 12 friends from the International High School in Prague disappear to the four corners of the earth, they intend to throw the best party of their lives. The idea to stage the party in Prague's biggest swimming pool is illegal but cool. And when Gregor, the laid-back leader of the group thinks an idea is good, then no-one else from the group objects. But what begins as the night of all nights quickly turns into a life and death struggle, as the friends come to realise that death itself is on the guest list... A mysterious masked killer sets a hunt in motion that ranges through the facility's halls and corridors. As the kids panic it begins to dawn on them that the killer must be one of them...

Quotes

Sarah: Don't feel too bad. When I first came here, they used to tease me, too. Remember, they used to call me "The Little Farm Girl?"
Frank: Yeah, but that's different. You're dating Gregor.
Sarah: I'm just saying you should lighten up.
Frank: What do you suggest I do?
Sarah: Well, you can't have Gregor. He's already spoken for. Plus, I really don't think you're his type.
Frank: Am I... your type?
Sarah: No,

Ve must get out o'vere
11 February 2010 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

As far as cheap German knock-offs to "Scream" go, this is probably as good as they're ever going to get. I just assume so, because I really can't be bothered with checking. Sure, this has the most wooden acting ever captured on celluloid, and the thick accents pretty much everybody has are annoying as hell, but this can all be forgiven because it's still pretty entertaining. A lot of people die violent, gory deaths, none of that PG-13 crap the American market is overflown with. The killer does some serious damage here. The pace is very fast, the mystery is at least somewhat compelling, the girls (particularly Elena Uhlig) are all pretty hot, what more can you really expect from this movie? "Swimming Pool" is not a good movie, but it's remarkably easy to watch it all the way through.
