During a visit to friends, Sara begins having visions and is attacked by an unearthly creature in her friend's swimming pool; she soon discovers that anyone who comes into contact with the water is in danger and she is driven to confront the mystical and malevolent creature lurking in the depths.
Alright, I'll admit it, I was lured in by the movie's cover/poster. Yeah, it did seem interesting, and I didn't even bother reading the synopsis for the movie.
Perhaps I should, because this movie was so far from what I had initially expected given the movie's cover. The storyline here was flaccid and fairly pointless, and nothing much of any interest or particular outstanding importance happened throughout the course of the movie. Actually, I will go as far as to say that the plot was actually ludicrous and the movie suffered badly from the writing of Itziar Martinez and Georges Padey.
The movie wasn't particularly enjoyable or entertaining, although I did manage to sit through the entire ordeal, hoping that the movie would eventually become better and pick up its pace. Unfortunately, it never did, and it was a very monotonous and generic ride.
The acting in "Nereus" was actually fair, taking into consideration that the actors and actresses had very little to work with in terms of script, plot and storyline. And the fact that the characters were in fact faceless drones with little or no distinguishable personalities didn't really help the acting performers in any way,
"Nereus" was a disappointing foray into the horror movie. I managed to sit through the entire movie, and chances are equal to null that I will ever do so again, because the movie had no appeal this first time around.
