Swimfan (2002)


A high school senior with a promising swimming career has a one-night stand with consequences. (IMDb)
Christensen’s seductive intensity as the terrifyingly obsessive Madison carries this tight teen thriller to its deadly finish on pure adrenaline and scrumptious psycho-stalker suspense, as you let most of its far-fetched plot points slide. You’re left at the end of it all wanting a little more subtlety and character probing from the skimmed-over screenplay, but it’s still undeniably exhilarating, and well-filmed and edited too (the rapid angle switches during intense scenes are a cool touch).
7/10 (Good)
