The Midnight Swim is an indie thriller from director Sarah Adina Smith that was a selection at the Fantasia Film Festival 2014. It stars Lindsay Burdge, Jennifer Lafleur, Aleksa Palladino, Ross Partridge, Beth Grant, Michelle Hutchinson and Shirley Venard and arrives in theaters and VOD on June 26th.

The trailer, below, creates a great, ominous atmosphere, though I’m a little concerned that the dialogue sounds stilted.

Here’s the synopsis:

When their mother goes missing in Spirit Lake, three half-sisters travel home to settle her affairs. The youngest sister, June (Lindsay Burge), a documentary filmmaker, captures their bittersweet homecoming. But when the sisters jokingly summon a local ghost, their relationship begins to unravel and they find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the true mystery of the lake. Transporting its audience to a place drenched in the supernatural, THE MIDNIGHT SWIM is an eerie, atmospheric exploration of the inexplicable pull towards the unknown.
