That's only lasted until about 15 minutes into the movie, when I realized the acting sucked and the movie just sucked in general. A lot of people, myself included, would be turned off of a premise like that, as it just takes place in one spot. I liked the fact that Tobin Bell played a small role in this, despite him not being the main character, but it would've been an all too big cliché considering he's well known for the Saw Franchise! Johanna, after calling the police, tells her to leave. Despite the carnage, the film effectively tells a terrifying story of heroics and hubris. One of the sisters continues to talk down to her and scream obscenities that do nothing to help the sisters escape.

Other than the main obstacle of trying to get unstuck, that comes down to the opportunities that arise in this impossible predicament, including the mysterious stranger that shows up at the pool after hours.

Do these people really believe theirs is the only opinion? Johanna sees the ring stuck in the metal grate at the bottom of the pool and both dive in to retrieve it. Visually, I think that 12 Feet Deep looks excellent. So the husband and I were unable to watch the scary movie we had requested. The success of which is due, in large part, to both its phenomenal, multi-layered script and talented cast. In all the survival thrillers I have watched, I have never seen such will and determination from the characters.
While packing up, Bree realizes that her engagement ring is missing, after attempting to show Johanna. Was following the sister's journey and hoping they find a way out. But as the credits rolled, it seemed as though the writers just ran out of ideas about how to close it up. The janitor comes back, realising the error of her ways. An insulin injection wouldn't save her at the end it would kill her if she was low, for the people that would say but it was a glucagon needle um no they are a syringe and bright orange case and container and have to be left in a fridge and no diabetic carries that with them they keep it with them at home in case of a fit at night, carry Jelly beans or juice or something. Thank Goodness the boy seems to be okay.

I can see how some users got irritated by their bickering in the beginning. One is the screw-up sister who causes all the problems, and Diane Farr plays an angry ex-con who likes a bit of sadistic torture. A helicopter is struck by a bird. Also, the older sister makes such a big deal about having to give her credit card pin to the psycho pool employee and contemplates being left in the pool to die rather than give it, but she only had like 70 dollars or whatever the amount was in her account.

The janitor, preparing to leave, is surprised to see the two girls trapped underneath the pool cover.
The muted blue tones of the pool help keep some desperation and the dialogue, which is crucial since there is—by extension of the premise—nearly no action, is mostly compelling, though the entire setup edges a little too close to metaphorical. As far as stories go, this is a good one, telling the story from four different angles. The fibreglass pool cover traps them in the water, but with the temperature dropping fast and Bree suffering from Diabetes, this isn't the only problem that the two sisters face when a sadistic employee also plans on making their lives a living hell. Daydreams, nightmares, and my own personal demons and anxieties. Do you think our dependency on oil will change in the upcoming years?
