  • msmichel's rating of the film The Drownsman

    The best horror film shot in Guelph, Ontario in 2013/14. Oh yes, also the only one. Initial premise is Ok in telling a story of a traumatized girl who had a supernatural encounter when she almost drowned in the past giving her a crippling hydrophobia. Those who doubt what she saw...come to regret it. Runs out of steam pretty quick though atmospheric. 02/25/15
