The Thai master of suspense returns, after smash hit Laddaland, with his latest horror that dredges the murky depths of thriller cinema.
The Swimmers at its core is a teen love-triangle horror. Sukdapisit is a master at making audiences jump; the soundtrack throws you off with fake jump scares and lulls in ambience to truly shock the audience.
You are constantly misled. The narrative is effectively told through a dual-running continuity, with an unexpected ending. Excellent acting and superb cinematography further the fear of the unknown and the dark depths of the water.
The morally ambiguous ending and unexpected turns are truly spectacular. Director Sukdapisit has found his gold medal with The Swimmers – but be wary, as this is one film that doesn’t settle for half measures with the audience.
