Welcome to a special Monday edition of Sunday Shorts! (I fell asleep before posting...)
NIGHT SWIM, directed by Rod Blackhurst + Bryce James McGuire, stars Megalyn Echikunwoke -- you might remember her from The 4400 and House of Lies -- as a young woman who gets interrupted during a swim.
I like the way it plays on one of our biggest primal fears: darkness. No crazy effects or exploding heads here. Our imagination does most of the heavy lifting. The setting also adds an extra level of vulnerability.
