Did You Know?


According to an interview with 1428 Elm, director Matt Eskandari said the film stemmed from his own fear of pools and oceans by saying: "Pools and oceans all trigger a bona fide sense of dread for me. Just the whole idea of being trapped in a pool makes me sweat. I decided to tap into that fear and the concept blossomed from there." See more »


After the paramedics arrive and Bree is conscious again, you can see in a shot that all the blood surrounding the hole in the fiberglass where they escaped from is gone. See more »

A taut trapped Drama/thriller
17 July 2017 | by plusonecheckerSee all my reviews

Two sisters swimming at a public indoor pool get trapped beneath the pool cover. Things get really bad for them fast as the place closes up for holidays.

I thought it seemed hokey to be stuck under a cover but a thick fiberglass sheet is a different story. One of the ladies is diabetic which ups the ante. Things get even worse when possible help turns around and extorts them. Similar to Extortion (2017).

An emotional roller-coaster for sure as we find out they were abused and they lost their father in a fire. So all these different elements are wearing them down slowly. It is one of those films you find yourself yelling at the screen for them to either do this or don't do that. Which you can either love or hate.

If you tune in for Tobin Bell his role is limited to telling people to get out and then he closes the pool cover. More of a fan winking cameo than anything.

Overall the flick is pretty good and you might even shed a tear or two.
