The Drownsman (2014) Reviews

  • The Trailer lied to me!!!


    In all honesty when I saw the trailer I thought to myself this looks like a good movie. The concept was a nice idea and it certainly had a creepy vibe to it. Even when I started watching it I could see it was getting straight into the story. Yet that is only where it had my interest. From there on out.... It started to fall apart for me.... First of all the way the story unfolded was pretty poor. Like I said earlier the concept of the film was good though how they laid it out was pretty weak. Like how Anna gets so seriously angry about Madison missing her wedding since Madison gained a fear of water since she nearly drowned to death. If it was my friend, I would give them the benefit of the doubt as they nearly died and are somewhat traumatised. Yet no we shall play along with the fact her friends have had enough and want to help her by stuffing her in a tub of water. (I have seen so many therapies for this particular phobia work exactly how they did it). Anyway I digress. Its little things like this in the story that drive me a little mad as it just doesn't flow well enough for me. Now you may say, well its a horror, the story is not meant to matter. Be there for the scares! Well sorry but b*ll*cks to that. I never got a single jump out of it. Not even my fiancée and she jumps easy, she ended up slumping over from boredom. Other than the fact the Drownsman looked like a runaway Orc from Lord of the Rings hoping to pursue a new career in Hollywood, his killings just did not do it for me. He just killed them like his namesake, which clearly the writer couldn't make exciting. Plus all of his attacks were very much the same. You knew when he was coming and even when he did all it was, was his bloody hand! So as you can see I was clearly disappointed by this film and if you do care about the storyline you will be too. I only gave this film two stars as I still reckon the plot line of this film could have worked. So please avoid this and watch something more interesting. Like the steam off a pile of sh*t. P.S. The worst quote of the film was Madison saying "To be honest, I didn't believe until today" which brings up many questions. And the worst reaction is when Madison trying to save her remaining living friend. Pathetic!

  • The parts are decent, but put together the result is not great.


    When I started watching this I was seriously considering giving up on it and watching something else. I checked my computer, surfed the web, not paying it full attention. (note, this is something I extremely rarely do) But it got hold of me just enough for me to watch it to the end. (maybe I shouldn't have, it did not give me much) The make up, the effects, the acting, everything is actually not bad, but the sum of it is just not very good, and not nearly entertaining enough. The story has it's kind of cool elements, but mostly it's not much to talk about. The Drownsman is sort of like 'Nightmare on Elm Street' with water instead of dreams. It's a shame this is not better, because I think it could have been pretty cool, had it just been.. better. And I can't really say what it is missing, either. I think it might have something to do with the premise. I don't want to spoil anything, but the parts happening in "the other place" didn't do it for me at all. Boring and uninspired. I will say this though, good job to the actors! These girls must have been cold and wet a lot shooting this. Well done. Shame the movie isn't better.

  • Pretty soggy vehicle...


    for some wet-behind-the-ears actors and production crew, if you ask me, and that's about it. With higher caliber talent and some serious script-doctoring, this might--and I can only emphasize, might--have transcended its straight-to-video-purgatory nature, but alas! Blub, blub, blub! We're sailing the high seas of Sturgeon's Revelation here. A watery grave is all this leaky vessel riddled with plot holes can ever hope to achieve. Mercifully, the DVD has nary a featurette, promo or otherwise, and that's likely a very good thing; I'd really hate to watch these kids drown in self-effacing explanations for taking a paying gig. At least, I hope they got paid. They did, right? Right?

  • 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.
