The Drownsman is a 2014 horror movie directed by Chad Archibald and starring Michelle Mylett, Caroline Palmer, and Ry Barrett. The movie tells the story of a young woman named Madison who, after almost drowning during a game with her friends, starts seeing visions of a supernatural entity called the Drownsman. Madison's friends believe that she is suffering from a form of post-traumatic stress disorder, but as her visions become more frequent and terrifying, they realize that they might be dealing with something far more sinister. Madison's boyfriend, Jack, enlists the help of a psychic named Clara, who has experience dealing with supernatural beings. Clara explains to Jack and Madison's friends that the Drownsman is an entity that can only enter our world through bodies of water, and that it preys on the souls of those who have had near-death experiences in water.

As Madison's relationship with Jack deteriorates, she becomes more and more isolated as the Drownsman begins to take over her life. The entity manifests as a physical presence that can control water, and it uses this ability to terrorize Madison and her friends. The Drownsman is a formidable opponent, as it can only be defeated by complete immersion in water, which means that Madison and her friends will have to face their fears head-on if they hope to survive.

The movie is visually stunning, with the Drownsman depicted as a dark, menacing figure that appears from the murky depths. The underwater scenes are particularly effective, as the tension builds with every breath as the characters struggle to evade the clutches of the supernatural entity. The movie also relies heavily on sound, with the eerie soundtrack creating an atmosphere of constant dread.

The performances from the cast are solid, with Michelle Mylett's portrayal of Madison being particularly impressive. As Madison's sanity deteriorates, Mylett excels at portraying a character who is both vulnerable and dangerous. Ry Barrett is also excellent as the menacing presence of the Drownsman, bringing a physicality to the role that is both terrifying and impressive.

The Drownsman is not without its flaws. The pacing can be slow at times, and some of the supporting characters are poorly developed. The ending also feels somewhat rushed, with certain plot points left unresolved. However, these issues do not detract too much from what is a solid horror movie that delivers plenty of scares and suspense.

Overall, The Drownsman is an effective horror movie that will appeal to fans of the genre. With its strong visuals and performances, the movie manages to create a creepy, atmospheric experience that will leave viewers on edge. While it may not reinvent the wheel when it comes to horror, it is a well-crafted movie that is worth checking out for fans of the genre.

The Drownsman is a 2014 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 26 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.1.
