‘Night Swim’ Trailer: Kerry Condon And Wyatt Russell Star In Underwater Horror From James Wan And Blumhouse

James Wan and Blumhouse are teaming up to ensure nobody goes back into the water ever again. Night Swim is based on the 2014 short film by writer/director Bryce McGuire, and stars Oscar nominee Kerry Condon, who was so great in The Banshees of Inisherin, and Wyatt Russell, hot off Apple’s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, as a married couple who enjoy their nightly backyard swims in the pool, until they come under threat by a malevolent force.

Here’s the official synopsis: No running. No diving. No lifeguard on duty. No swimming after dark.

Atomic Monster and Blumhouse, the producers of M3GAN, high dive into the deep end of horror with the new supernatural thriller, Night Swim.

Based on the acclaimed 2014 short film by Rod Blackhurst and Bryce McGuire, the film stars Wyatt Russell (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) as Ray Waller, a former major league baseball player forced into early retirement by a degenerative illness, who moves into a new home with his concerned wife Eve (Oscar® nominee Kerry Condon, The Banshees of Inisherin), teenage daughter Izzy (Amélie Hoeferle, this fall’s The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes) and young son Elliot (Gavin Warren, Fear the Walking Dead).

Secretly hoping, against the odds, to return to pro ball, Ray persuades Eve that the new home’s shimmering backyard swimming pool will be fun for the kids and provide physical therapy for him. But a dark secret in the home’s past will unleash a malevolent force that will drag the family under, into the depths of inescapable terror.

Also in the cast are Amélie Hoeferle and Gavin Warren. James Wan, creator of Saw and The Conjuring Universe is aboard as a producer, alongside Blumhouse’s Jason Blum. Blumhouse’s horror rep speaks for itself, just as Wan’s does.

One of my deepest fears, one that I still have nightmares about, is drowning. I hate deep water in real life, video games, and especially in movies. This one’s going to be a tough sit for me!

Night Swim opens in theaters soon! Check out the trailer below followed by the synopsis.
