Storyline

After almost drowning in a lake, Madison finds herself bound to a life of fear. Unable to describe what happened to her during the moments she was underwater, she begins to develop hydrophobia: an abnormal fear of water. Crippled by her post trauma, Madison attempts to shut out the world but her fear intensifies and she is faced with the vision of a dark figure that haunts her day and night. After watching her struggle for one year with the phobia and visions, Madison's four friends attempt an unconventional intervention in which they accidentally open a floodgate to a dark place where none of them are safe. As Madison and her friends dive deeper into the dark history of this figure that haunts them, it reaches out and begins dragging them to a horrifying place that they can never come back from.

Drowning to boredom
6 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

I liked the idea of this horror film and the first 30 minutes of The Drownsman were good. I actually thought that this time and this horror film would scare me. But then everything changed. The characters stopped being interesting, the dialogues started to repeated again and again, the story from horror turned to a bad comedy. Okay, I passed my free time, I had some laughs - not the ideal thing when you are watching a horror movie. If this is only what you want from a movie in general, then The Drownsman is the right choice for you. And something for the faint-hearted, don't forget to take your bath or drink lots of water before watching it!
