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?
