of misfortunes and unlucky coincidences trap the lead character Day
and his girlfriend Koi inside a draining 6 meter (20 foot) swimming
pool. There is no ladder. Nor is there a "shallow end." The
pool is used as a movie prop, so essentially it's just a very deep hole.
Day works as a stuntman and the final shoot has just wrapped. He knows
that he must soon start tearing down the set, but decides to lounge
a bit on a rubber raft in the pool. The boy ends up falling asleep while
the water starts to drain. Day wakes when his girlfriend dives in (she
doesn't realize that she's jumping into a dire situation until it's
too late, managing to crack her head on the diving board on the way
down). The two are now completely trapped in the soon-empty pool. There's
no way out. But their trouble is further complicated when an alligator
from the neighboring animal-farm escapes and decides to join them.
retrospect, the story seems very far-fetched. But while the movie is
unspooling, it's quite realistic, exciting and suspenseful. Reminiscent
WATER 2, this is a perfect popcorn movie. And - while unexpectedly
meanspirited in places (pet lovers will be quite upset) - it's a recommended,
film with English subtitles; widescreen, 91 minutes;
DVD encoded for WORLD FORMAT NTSC, playable on any American machine.
Extras include original theatrical trailer.
