Universal Pictures Home Entertainment will be releasing the horror movie Night Swim on Digital come March 12, 2024, followed by a Blu-ray and DVD physical release on April 9, 2024.

The upcoming home release of Night Swim will contain tons of extra content for fans to enjoy and make the price tag worth it. It has a feature commentary track! Yay!

The film is from James Wan’s Atomic Monster (The Conjuring franchise, Insidious franchise) and Blumhouse (The Black Phone, Halloween franchise). It has been written and directed by Bryce McGuire.

The premise of the film deals with a family moving into a new home only to realize that the swimming pool in their backyard has a mind of its own. Depending on how you look at it, the water can be a blessing or curse as the family tries to survive the supernatural forces that are out to get them.

Night Swim was released in the US back on January 5, 2024. It went on to gross more than $52 million worldwide against a reported production budget of $15 million.

I watched it because I found the trailer intriguing. But as far as the movie itself is concerned, I would describe it as passable. It’s not bad and it’s not great. It’s an okay time with some interesting moments.

A major issue of mine was how the lore felt underdeveloped. The backstory had a lot of potential. If only the creative team decided to really get into it. In the end, the movie left me with more questions than answers and the underwater horror scenes stopped hitting once I realized the pattern.

The cast includes Wyatt Russell, Oscar-nominee Kerry Condon, Amélie Hoeferle, and Gavin Warren as the Waller family that has to deal with the “haunted” swimming pool. I liked Condon’s portrayal of Izzy Waller; a mother doing what she could to protect her loved ones against a ticking clock. She gave me Naomi Watts vibes.

Here’s the trailer!

The Bonus Features on Digital, Blu-ray and DVD include:

  • Into the Deep – Get learn about the physical and technical work the cast and crew did to create such a project.

  • Feature Commentary with Co-writer and Director Bryce McGuire – You know me, I enjoy feature commentaries. I feel every home release should come with one. So, of course, this particular extra content is what I’m most excited about.
