Great Dutch horror movie that hits the spot
8 May 2014 | by (Rotterdam, the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

De Poel (The Pool) really surprised me. Where most horror films and especially dutch ones lack tension and add every cliché in the book, The Pool is witty, has a lot of black humor, is well- acted and has just enough gore to satisfy a horror buff, but does not scare away a main stream audience.

It's e well directed family drama turning sour when a acing trip turns into a believable nightmare. Sound design and music ensure a good creepy vibe. The characters are believable, even when the start going a bit berserk.

I really enjoyed it. Fun to watch and a little bit scary.

Well done!
