"James and Em Foster are enjoying an all-inclusive beach vacation in the fictional island of La Tolqa, when a fatal accident exposes the resort's perverse subculture of hedonistic tourism, reckless violence and surreal horrors." 


Brandon Croenberg’s Infinity Pool is an absolutely wild experience from start to finish and is not for the faint of heart. Having seen the festival cut of the film, I’ve witnessed the most sinister iteration of the feature and it took some time to digest. Now after a solid week has gone by, my confusion and disgust has sense morphed into admiration for the craft behind the scenes. 


Taking on a political commentary with relative subtlety while focusing on the body horror and psychological aspect of the feature. Surrounded by astounding performances all around; the subdued Alexander Skarsgård whom we watch transition through the most emotions as he begins his friendship with this new group of tourists he’s come across and the easily most prominent newcomer in horror over the past few years, Mia Goth. Goth delivers yet another stunning performance outside of her Ti West trilogy and rivals it here. 


The feature is a bizarre psychological horror that isn’t afraid to be controversial with its wicked sense of humor. A stunning effort from Croenberg and a reason to reflect back at the director’s filmography for some more hidden gems. You’ll feel corrupt, disturbed and dirty after a single viewing, yet the more time separated from the experience, the more willing you'll become to return to this nightmare disguised as a vacation.
