Got a favorite pool scene in a horror flick?
Here are a few to choose from.

I had to vote for the final pool scene in the underrated (methinks) THE KISS. Meredith Salenger's struggle to get out of the pool as her aunt is headed her way, she keeps on getting half out of the pool and then falling back into the water again...pretty intense stuff.
Loved that J. Peter Robinson score by the way. http://www.horrordvds.com/vbulletin/images/icons/icon14.gif

I had to go for another film. H. G. Clouzot's Les Diaboliques. Absolute classic suspense!

Freddy's Pool party in Nightmare 2 is one of the definitive moments in the otherwise weakest movie in the Nightmare series. Gave it my vote...what the heck!

A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2 all the way.;)

Certainly not the best film on the list, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2 wins, regardless.

Yeah, I know it's a great film that's why I included it in this poll:

Diabolique (US title) aka The Devils (US TV-title) (1955) / Les Diaboliques (Original French title). :)

The Freddy pool party masssacre in ANOES 2 gets my vote. ANOES 2 is actually one of my favorites of the series. Good poll Hellers, but enough with this HOSR propaganda!!!! :D :)

Was a toss-up between the title creature in the backyard swimming pool in ALLIGATOR, and the obligatory idiot couple swimming in the research pool after-hours at the beginning of PIRANHA.....(drum roll)..............and..........the fishies win!!......:) ....although that was a creepy scene in ALLIGATOR......

BTW, wasn't there another pool scene in the Elm Street series....with Freddy messing with a girl diving......?? Something to that effect....dang memory cells....need recharging!

Ok, so I missed a few, :D
Those "Alligator/Piranha" pool scenes were quite cool.
Can't remember that other Freddy/Pool scene though.

The "other" pool scene is in NIGHTMARE 5. A young swimmer dreams about being in a huge indoor pool and dives off the platform way up above, only for it to transform into Freddy's netherworld when she finally reaches the bottom.

Ah yes, now I remember. Thanks TRASH.

THE FACULTY!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I'm the only person in the world who loved this one, but I thought it was a great throw-back to old monster movies with a modern twist. Maybe that's just me :D.

But Helly man, you forgot the all time greatest - FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH!!!!!! ;):p:D.

I voted for the Prowler.

But I was thinking about whether the maggots count as a "pool" in Phenomena...

Nice pool, oops, I mean poll. As usual, Helly.

Wasn't there a pool scene in Jack Frost 2?

You'd think a movie of such merit would get precedence over House on Sorrority Row. But alas, this is a Helly poll, it is just one of those things we have to sit back and accept quietly.

:D:)

The pool scene in Burnt Offerings is disturbing just for the whole domestic violence/child abuse thing. I just can't watch things like that. My second choice is the pool scene in Poltergeist. Good reason for having an above ground pool!!!

Thanks Ace :D
The pool scene in "The Prowler" rules!



Jack Frost 2?
I haven't seen part 1 yet!

Believe me rhetts, "Final Exam's" budget was so low they didn't even had enough cash left to film a cool pool scene. ;)

Hehe, Helly. :)

The pool scene in House also brings back memories. There were a lot of damn pool scenes in horror movies!

The pool of bodies and maggots in Dario Argento's Phenomena was icky.

There was also the scary pool in Shadow of the Hawk where the ancient Indian spirit tried to pull Jan-Michael Vincent down to the bottom.

Don't forget the frozen pool in Poltergeist III.

I voted for Suspiria. That scene still intoxicates me. I can practically smell the room and feel the water on my fingers as I watch.

But I sort of thought the pool scene in Rocky Horror Picture Show was equally amazing. I couldn't really vote for it though. I was a late comer to seeing Rocky Horror. So it didn't have the same impact on me that Suspiria did.

How could this poll neglect to mention the waterslide death scene... or pretty much any other scene... from The Pool (http://www.oh-the-horror.com/page.php?id=81)?
