I totally get where you’re coming from! It’s frustrating when a film turns out to be bland and not worth the hype. From what you’ve described, it seems like this movie didn’t live up to your expectations.
I understand that you were looking forward to seeing Wyatt Russell in action. I mean, who doesn’t love Kurt Russell’s son? But it sounds like the movie focused more on the subplot of an ex-baseball player and his family dynamics rather than delivering on the horror elements.
It’s a shame that the lack of scares and excitement overshadowed what could have been a nice family drama. Sometimes, when a movie tries to blend different genres, it doesn’t always hit the mark. And I can see why you would have preferred to watch it on a streaming platform rather than spending money on it in theaters.

I totally get what you mean! It’s disappointing when a horror movie turns out to be more of a family drama than a spine-chilling experience. From what you’ve described, it seems like the build-ups to the scary scenes weren’t as effective as they could have been. That can really take away from the overall impact of the film.
It’s a shame that the concept of the movie didn’t fully explore the eldritch origins of the swimming pool. I agree that delving deeper into its history and incorporating elements of mythology and folklore could have added a whole new layer of intrigue and excitement. And those monsters…well, they definitely missed the mark. It would have been great to see more imaginative and terrifying entities that truly evoke a sense of fear.
I understand your frustration when horror movies fail to deliver on the scares. After all, that’s the essence of the genre, right? It’s disappointing when the movie falls short in that aspect. It sounds like this film had so much untapped potential, and it’s a shame that it didn’t live up to your expectations.
