While staying at an isolated island resort, James (Alexander Skarsgård) and Em (Cleopatra Coleman) are enjoying a perfect vacation of pristine beaches, exceptional staff, and soaking up the sun. But guided by the seductive and mysterious Gabi (Mia Goth), they venture outside the resort grounds and find themselves in a culture filled with violence, hedonism, and untold horror. A tragic accident leaves them facing a zero tolerance policy for crime: either you’ll be executed, or, if you’re rich enough to afford it, you can watch yourself die instead.
“Blood-churning moments are combined with a depth of characterisation you don’t always get in more conventional horror fare. In its morbid and provocative way, the film is often funny but it’s thought-provoking and very creepy too.” (Independent UK)
“‘Infinity Pool’ is a masterful piece of satirical terror with startling neo-psychedelia sequences you won’t forget. It suggests that Brandon Cronenberg is not his father’s filmmaking clone, even if he enjoys plunging himself into the same grotesque waters.” (LA Weekly / Village Voice)
“Brandon Cronenberg delivers the shivers, and more than a few WTF moments, with a vacation inferno creeper that gnaws at the mind.” (Toronto Star)
