What else to know about Night Swim

Night Swim is based on a short movie by Bryce McGuire and Rod Blackhurst (which you can actually watch right now on YouTube). Here is the official synopsis of the feature-length version of Night Swim:

"Ray Waller, a former baseball player forced into early retirement because of a degenerative illness, moves into a new home with his wife Eve, teenage daughter Izzy and young son Elliot. Secretly hoping to return to pro baseball, Ray persuades Eve that the new home’s backyard pool will be fun for the kids and provide physical therapy for him. But a dark secret in the home’s past will unleash an evil force that will drag the family into the depths of inescapable terror."

McGuire wrote the movie's screenplay and serves as the director. The cast of the movie includes Wyatt Russell as Ray, Kerry Condon as Eve, Amélie Hoeferle as Izzy and Gavin Warren as Elliot.

As of publication, Night Swim does not have an official Rotten Tomatoes score, as reviews are still waiting to come in.
