Meet The Drownsman in This Promising Trailer

The Drownsman posterI'm getting some solid Candyman vibes from this trailer for The Drownsman, which debuted online today just in time for Cannes. Chad Archibald's film got us interested with the cool poster that was released a bit ago (pictured here). The trailer itself – or the scenario depicted in the promo – presents a cool '80s/boogeyman vibe.

Archibald co-penned the script with Cody Calahan (Antisocial). Michelle Mylett, Gemma Bird Matheson, Caroline Korycki, Sydney Kondruss, Clare Bastable and Ryan Barrett star.

After almost drowning in a lake, Madison finds herself bound to a life of fear. Unable to describe what happened to her during the moments she was underwater, she begins to develop hydrophobia: an abnormal fear of water. Crippled by her post trauma, Madison attempts to shut out the world but her fear intensifies and she is faced with the vision of a dark figure that haunts her day and night.

After watching her struggle for one year with the phobia and visions, Madison's four friends attempt an unconventional intervention in which they accidentally open a floodgate to a dark place where none of them are safe. As Madison and her friends dive deeper into the dark history of this figure that haunts them, it reaches out and begins dragging them to a horrifying place that they can never come back from.
