Film review – The Swimmers


Cast: Chutavuth Pattarakampol, Thanapob Leeratanakajorn,Supassra Thanachat

Director: Sophon Sakdaphisit


Sophon Sakdaphisit brings adrenaline-filled,horror and unexpectedness movie to the big screen. Young and amazing actors convey a good and interesting story for audience which left them speechless.

It was a story best friends who also are the pool enemies. It was complicated part when Perth (Chutavuth Pattarakampol) in love with Tan’s (Thanapob Leeratanakajorn) girlfriend Ice(Supassra Thanachat). The girl got pregnant from Perth and try to do abortion but she suicide and left a lot of questions. Tan tried to revenge to person who encourage Ice to kill herself. And all film was about how he tried to know who was that person. It was like a love triangle which destroy a friendship and was full of hate and fears. It wasn’t just a horror film it was a psychological film too.

Audience was screaming all the time because a lot of scary parts of movie was used in the film. Music and sounds effects was used in right places. Long silences was raising the voltage and than a loud screaming accelerated heartbeat and forced to scream in fright.

The Swimmers was full of visual effects.  A lot of darkness and suddenly human face. Different locations like swimming pool, forest, beach, home looked realistic and dangerous.  Actors was students and they looked usually but all them sores and girl’s spirit looked very realistic and amazing.

The film was about 2 hours long and it wasn’t boring because all film was keeping a intrigue. And the ending was really shocked and unbelievable. The director of this film showed that not only good side can win. He shows real life , where bad side wins too and maybe more times. Everybody is always expect for a beautiful ending but this time was not the same. A friend who all film was like a hero showed that he is the evil. That Perth is murder and he is the bad guy who killed Ice. When Tan’s knew that it was Perth he tried to kill him but Perth killed the Tan first. Its dramatic ending when person who killed best friend and the girl who he likes was full of pain and never found the peace anymore.
