It’s not long until the peculiar and unsettling film The Midnight Swim will be released, and to celebrate we’ve got some exclusive stills from the film and they certainly reflect the unnerving aura seen in the trailer.
The film was one of Fantasia Film Festival’s selections last year and it’s clear to see why from the incredible cinematography and superb acting. Starring in Sarah Adina Smith’s harrowing tale is Lindsay Burdge, Jennifer Lafleur, Aleska Palladino, Ross Partridge, Beth Grant, Michelle Hutchinson and Shirley Venard.
The Midnight Swim will be released through Electric Candy Label in theatres and on VOD on June 26th 2015.
