    I hadn't heard of this film before but a friend sent me the red band trailer link. It looks promising. There is a German blu-ray release but it only received a DVD release here.

    I wasn't crazy about it. I was expecting it to be a slasher movie, but after the opening kill it really isn't. There's a lengthy finale set piece that is fairly graphic and fun, which I'm sure is shown in the trailer. It's not a terrible watch, but it's a one-timer for sure. Helps that it's only about 70 minutes.

    They show the one kill in the tube a few times in the trailer. I hope there are better ones than that as the trailer doesn't do a good job getting me to want to watch the movie.

    I do remember going to a water slide built into a small mountain or hill when I was young. Also one of those wave pools. The idea seems like a good kill scene for a slasher movie but not a full movie.

    Reminds me of Action Park in New Jersey

    I see this is on demand. I was going to watch it but I decided on The Rental instead. Maybe I'll check this out next.

    Well I watched it. The movie was short but it felt long because it was so bad. And another thing,

    I was right in my previous post about the trailer.

    The movie feels like a really bad 80s horror movie or one of those horror porn parodies that someone here told me about. I searched and watched a few minutes of those back then. It's the same bad quality acting for the most part except Aquaslash has a few softcore porn scenes thrown in and not the real deal. The scenes in Aquaslash are crude and in bad taste as well. It's just garbage High School kids on drugs and graduates I guess wanting to relive their High School years acting stupid. A no point movie. Zero likeable characters. Just watch the trailer and you will see enough. Also some more spoilers.

    They have the nerve to want to make some kind of sequel I guess because there is a scene right before the main credits start. I didn't even get why it all happened. Two female characters looked kind of similar and had the same characteristics. Only at the end did I tell them apart.

    If they made that final kill scene as the start of a real movie. It might be a good start. That final sequence is so mean spirited though. It's like the director really hated High School kids or people who enjoyed waterslides.

    This movie did make me remember why I stopped going to public water areas. I got older and noticed that people weren't that clean. Some wouldn't shower before getting into the pool, would joke about using the bathroom in the pool, and I hated the strong smell of chlorine in the bigger pools. The last public pool I was in had a cockroach in it that crawled on me while I was on the edge.

    I was curious about pool water, searched and read this:

    "The pre-swim shower helps minimize the irritating, smelly substances formed in pool water when impurities introduced on the bodies of swimmers combine with chlorine. Many people identify that smell as the smell of chlorine. The survey found 38 percent of people believe the characteristic chemical odor of some swimming pools in an indicator of a clean pool. In fact, that stringent odor is not from chlorine, but from irritants produced when chlorine reacts with impurities. A well-managed pool has no strong chemical smell."

    That really upsets me. I'm even reading articles basically calling some pools "communal bathtubs" because that's what some people use them as. And it's what happens when people don't shower before entering the water.
