Aquaslash is a 2019 Canadian horror film, directed by Renaud Gauthier. The movie follows a group of high school graduates as they celebrate their last day of school at a water park called Wet Valley. But what was supposed to be a fun-filled day of waterslides and relaxation turns into a nightmare when someone starts sabotaging the rides, which ultimately leads to a bloodbath.

The movie opens with a prologue in which three teenagers sneak into Wet Valley at night to ride the park's newest attraction, a water slide called the "Big Mama". Things quickly go wrong when one of the girls gets stuck in the slide and suffers a gruesome death. The incident is covered up by the park's management and the ride is reopened the following day.

Fast forward to graduation day, a group of friends consisting of Josh (Nicolas Fontaine), Alice (Brittany Drisdelle), Greg (Nick Walker), and their respective significant others decide to spend the day at Wet Valley to celebrate. Upon their arrival, they notice something strange about the park's atmosphere, and soon it becomes apparent that someone is targeting the park's patrons.

As the day goes by, the group becomes separated, and each one has to fight their way through the park as they are hunted down by a mysterious killer with a vendetta against the park. The remaining cast members are forced to confront the killer in order to survive until morning. However, not everything is as it seems, and there are plenty of twists and turns along the way that keep the audience on the edge of their seats.

Aquaslash stands out for its unique concept and creative kills. The film utilizes a number of real-life water park attractions in inventive, gruesome ways, resulting in scenes that are both terrifying and often hilarious. The practical effects are fantastic - there is little reliance on CGI, which adds to the authenticity of the carnage and heightens the tension.

Despite the slasher genre tropes, the cast members give solid performances throughout. Fontaine and Drisdelle, in particular, carry the weight of the narrative and hold their own in tense, dramatic scenes. Walker also delivers a fun, memorable performance as the comic relief character.

In terms of pacing, Aquaslash is well-balanced, ratcheting up the tension as the night progresses. The score is effective in building a sense of unease, although it's not particularly memorable. The cinematography is top-notch, with the use of the water park's unique settings lending a surreal, dreamlike quality to the proceedings.

Overall, Aquaslash is a thrilling, unique twist on the slasher genre that is sure to delight horror fans. With inventive kills, practical effects, and solid performances, the film delivers a satisfying, blood-spattered good time.

Aquaslash is a 2020 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 11 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.7.
