      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Despite a promising start and a handful of solid scares, Night Swim is undone by a premise that just isn't strong enough to support a feature-length film.

      Audience Consensus

      Night Swim has a few creepy scenes, but overall, this suburban horror story is too bland and predictable to really be scary.

      Logan very predictable and mediocre Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/19/24 Full Review Cyrus While I thought that the ending was a bit cheesy and uninteresting for the most part. This movie was still very well made for its setting. Very good popcorn flick. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/17/24 Full Review Kay This movie had no plot and the characters didn't seem connected in any way. For a "scary" movie, there was no intensity in the buildup of action. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Tunde I’m giving this 4 stars STRICTLY BECAUSE IT IS NOT A BAD movie. I saw complaints about this movie being a predictable horror movie? I liked it and it happy jumpy moments. If your favorite movies are Oscar worthy, then horror in general isn’t for you. It has one purpose and that is scaring you. I enjoyed it. Really hard to trust ratings anymore because society has become so hard to please and people don’t watch movies in theater anymore except for real passionate movie goers. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/24 Full Review Theresa a This movie was okay. It was mostly predictable. My granddaughter wanted to see it and she liked it. I don't think it was worth the cost of movie tickets and snacks. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/24 Full Review Meosha Movie had jump moments, but a possessed pool is a bit much.

      Sergio Burstein Los Angeles Times It opts, in turn, for a Hollywood-esque correct esthetic, lacking in surprises and assuming an air of stubborn solemnity. [Full review in Spanish] Jan 30, 2024 Full Review Joey Shapiro Chicago Reader Night Swim might be the first movie to star a haunted pool, but its story beats are interchangeable with any other horror movie in the microgenre of kindly fathers turning mean after a real estate–based possession. Jan 13, 2024 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com There comes a point where it almost feels as if McGuire was making it up as he went along. So little of this thriller make sense that it’s impossible for it to generate a lasting emotional impact. Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 7, 2024 Full Review Mattie Lucas From the Front Row Night Swim's "what if The Shining but in a pool instead of a hotel" premise is too goofy to take seriously and too repetitive and bland to be frightening. Rated: 1/4 Apr 19, 2024 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy There isn’t anything even half as frightening as my neighborhood pool during the waning weeks of every summer, when the useless HOA has stopped paying for its upkeep and allowed all manner of dead insects and unidentified fungi to blanket the surface. Rated: 2/4 Apr 12, 2024 Full Review Allison Rose FlickDirect Despite 'Night Swim's intriguing concept, its execution falters, leaving audiences more amused than frightened by its poolside horror.
