Just in case hor­ror movies haven’t al­ready put you off ever go­ing on a camp­ing trip… In this Dutch hor­ror, two fam­i­lies head off into the woods, pitch their tents on the banks of a lake, do some petty bick­er­ing… and get mur­dered.

There’s an es­tab­lished tem­plate for this kind of thing, and The Pool doesn’t really break any new ground, but it’s worth watch­ing for its un­usual threat - there aren’t many films about evil lakes - and queasy, night­mar­ish at­mos­phere.

Ex­tras Just the trailer. Sarah Dobbs

But why’s this film called The Pool?
