The Midnight Swim
Directed by Sarah Adina Smith
Eerie things start happening when three sisters return to their lakeside home and summon the spirit of a drowned girl. First dead birds start appearing on their doorstep, then other creepy happenings. What do these ominous signs mean - and what’s their connection to a local legend, their mother’s death and the lake which may be calling June towards it? Sarah Adina Smith’s genre-bending debut is an elegant mixture of psychological thriller, ghost story and POV horror. Though offscreen much of the time, Lindsay Burdge (THE INVITATION) gives a haunting lead performance.

This film as no real meaning and wasn’t scary at all
I have to say - it takes quite a lot for me to not finish a movie. However, I just couldn't get to the end of this one. Just seemed to have no point at all. Very strange idea all in but unfortunately just didn't cut it. Perhaps something did happen but I really struggled to see the horror element.
The whole film - I mean all of it - you're thinking "Something will happen soon!". It doesn't. Absolute crock of shit. DO yourself a favour and don't watch it. It doesn't even deserve the 1 I agve it.
So...what happened to the birds? Good cinematography but the movie is so stretched out and pointless its painful by the end..... the end that sucks. Only remotely "scary" parts are the ones waiting for something to possibly happen in the underwater scenes, and that's a let down.
