Swimfan Reviews

    Even though it has some cliches, Christensen's icy cool mood turns the movie on, as well as Bradford's studness (in swimsuits) adds up to this frightened teenager boy.

    This cheap-o teen thriller essentially takes Fatal Attraction and transposes the action to an American high school. Woeful plot holes and doubtful developments bog down a seen-it-all-before screenplay that delivers more ills than thrills, but wide-eyed Erika Christenson gives a genuinely admirable performance as the psychotic teen driving the action. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for leading man Jesse Bradford who, aside from looking at least ten years older than the character he's trying to play, appears to have undergone charisma extraction therapy. If the screenplay and acting aren't wobbly enough, director John Polson dulls down the film's more decent moments with shaky double-takes and spacey repetitions. Perhaps the worst aspect of the film, however, is the niggling feeling it'll give most viewers that the whole thing might have had potential, had it been delivered as a madcap creepy-chick comedy.

    4/9/2016: Meh. Ok at best. Nothing all that great or memorable except Christensen's beauty.

    silly suspense flick for kiddies. not worth the time or energy especially if you've seen movies like the crush and fatal attraction.

    Swimfan is the epitome of the term "mediocre thriller." This Fatal Attraction-esque drama is short, unoriginal and painfully predictable.

    Alex Forrest can rest easy: Madison Bell is no match for her in the "psycho murderous mistress" department.

    Psycho girl stalks High School swimmer. The suspense is very thin and we already know who did it and how it's going to end.

    This is a fun little thriller. Think of it as a teenage Fatal Attraction.
