Better than it should be

Emotionally crippled from a traumatic experience, a woman and her friends attempt to cure the incident leads them to inadvertently resurrect a vicious supernatural killer who begins killing them off one-by-one and must find the connection to them to stop his spree.

Frankly this was a lot better than expected overall. One of the film's best strengths is the fact that this one really plays quite nicely in detailing the very real and somewhat plausible fear here that really could be possible and occur in the real world. Taking on the fear of water as it occurs here comes off as a very logical and realistic phobia that's well-played here with some far better scares than it really deserves as this one really plays with a common everyday occurrence only turning it into a more horrifying experience. That in turn gives this one some rather chilling scenes and encounters here with the initial accident forcing her fear upon her being a more than appropriate start to her fears, the encounter in the bathtub where they try to intervene on her behalf only to release the killer after them makes for quite a creepy and thrilling scene and the different encounters with her friends getting attacked and picked off one-by- one around her that this one gets plenty to like here with the abduction by the water faucet and the elevator ambush being particular highlights. As well, they give this one the setup needed to bring about the high-energy finale which is rather enjoyable as the different discoveries around his basement lair finding their floating corpses and the brawling needed to finally end him once and for all gives this one a rousing, chilling sequence that takes full advantage of not only the chilling setting but also featuring the nice action overall to give this a lot to like. Combined with the creepy look of the main killer who really looks quite chilling with the wetness of his body really combining well with the dreadlocks and the green, decomposing skin, there's quite a lot to really like here though it does have a couple of flaws present here. The film's biggest problem here is the fact that the killer might look creepy, but otherwise he's completely not threatening at all which is mainly due to him not really appearing here all that often. Though the film doesn't really have a slow pace at all, there's not all that many encounters with the killer to really get an idea of what he can do or what his powers are and they appear mainly to be simply just dragging people away through puddles of water. That alone is weak enough, but it also manages to be completely clueless about him or what he's after them for which manages to really make the mystery about him all the more obvious here with the utterly lame killing motivation once it's finally revealed to be the case which really makes for a really troubling killer. The other big flaw to this that really does tie into how lame the killer really is comes from the actual killing method, which consists of simply drowning people which is used throughout here and doesn't really deliver a shocking enough impression on the killer, and that all ties together into making him quite a lame villain. It's really the only thing that holds it back.

Rated R: Graphic Language and Violence.

This movies all wet.

I admit the beginning started out intriguing but after a scene involving a bathtub,a girl's fear of water, and some lame villain and hilariously bad attempt at using water as a tool to SCARE the viewer with I knew this movie was a loser.

The main actor was okay in the beginning , but then the movie kept going and her acting as well as the other ACTORS in this movie got worse and worse .

At least unlike the unneeded uninteresting cardboard characters she was at least...okay .

The end I won't ruin but I will say it was hilariously bad that's all really.

I thought this was gonna be SCARY...not the least bit.

I thought the villain would be interesting and creative ....none of the above.

I thought the PLOT would make sense ....No sense was made out of this film in any capacity whatsoever .

The special effects were unimaginative , the deaths were repetitive and hilarious, and the victims were some of the stupidest and useless victims I've seen in a while in a horror movie.

This isn't a horror movie either it's a HORRIBLE movie .

With friends like these ...

Madison has an acute fear of water, and worries that a vengeful spirit is coming for her. One of her friends admits to another that she has a mental problem. Probably best, then, that these 'friends' get together and create a mock séance and challenge any spirits to send a sign that they mean Maddie harm. When a definite sign is sent that harm IS meant, what is the next thing this group of geniuses decide to do? Carry on with the séance, and lower her into a tub of water – where she is grabbed by an unseen spirit that tries to drown her.

In the continuing face of her misery, more people – professionals, this time, and the father of a former victim – tell her her fears are all in her mind. Such stupidity gets instantly frustrating. The darkened creature known as The Drownsman thinks so too, and slowly he begins to attack Madison's group of friends.

The trouble is, due to his nature, The Drownsman dispatches all his victims in the same manner, so instead of his crimes being depicted as brutal and terrifying, they are rather more relentless and repetitive. Also, Maddie's extreme aqua-phobia clearly doesn't extend to an ability to wash herself – she, her clothes and hair are spotless at all times. It's impossible not to notice this.

This is a competently made, unambitious picture, content to model its scares on the 'Nightmare on Elm Street' franchise, with the titular fiend appearing to a group of intense young pretties mainly through their unconsciousness, always involving water. As the creature's success with claiming the young troupe continues, his original favourite Madison continues to evade him long enough to find out a little of the Drownsman's past; the 'terrible sick monster' was a rapist, who raped Maddie's mother, which resulted in … Maddie.

There's a notion that The Drownsman might have been waiting for Maddie so she can take his place, but this is only vaguely hinted at before the credits come crashing in and, in all honesty, it's difficult to be overly concerned with a character (or characters) who spend most of the film's running time screaming instead of developing any discernible character.
