Audience Reviews for The Pool


Standard European "Slasher" flick, very average.

The setting of the film inside a huge Swimming pool complex is quite cool, and there are some interesting kills (you'll think twice before descending a pool slide again), but we've seen it all before and seen it done better.

Fans of the "Slasher" genre may find it a worthwhile purchase, others may find it a tired and repetitive waste of time.

A very good low budget slasher, pretty good mask for the killer. Opening very similar to Scream. Stars Isla Fisher in a small role.

This film probably could have been good in the 70's or 80's but in this day in age it just didn't cut it. If the killer had a better costume and if they would have used a gritter grade of film and tryed to make it like a tribute to horror of the slasher era then maybe it would have been better? the film quality just made it look cheesy. Not really worth a watch.
