Critic Reviews for The Pool

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

Reunindo um elenco internacional de atores medíocres (dirigidos por um estreante incompetente), o filme tem um roteiro tão absurdo que nem mesmo a heroína acredita quando descobre o motivo por trás dos assassinatos. Imagine, então, o espectador.

Cinema em Cena

A generic international version of a typical American horror film.

The Pool drowned me in boredom.

Fantastica Daily

Director Boris von Sychowski instead opts for a routine slasher film that was probably more fun to make than it is to sit through.

Literally nothing in The Pool is new, but if you grew up on the stalker flicks of the 1980's this one should appease you for 90 minutes.

I guess it just goes to show that if you give a filmmaker an unlimited amount of phony blood, nothing good can happen.

Audience Reviews for The Pool

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.

A nice little teen slasher. Very cliched, but it was kind of fun to see James McAvoy and Isla Fisher in a low-budget flick before Atonement and Wedding Crashers. Don't spend too much money on this movie, it's not worth more than a couple bucks, which is exactly what I got it for.

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.
