Editorial Reviews

Jesse Bradford (Bring It On, Clockstoppers) and Erika Christensen (Traffic, The Banger Sisters) plunge into a world of desire and deceit in this scary, suspenseful surprise! (Access Hollywood) High School senior Ben Cronin (Bradford) has it all: good friends, a loyal sweetheart, and a great shot at a Stanford University swimming scholarship. But a chance encounter with a sexy new student (Christensen) turns Ben's dream into the ultimate nightmare as her schoolgirl crush quickly escalates to obsession and, ultimately, murder.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spooky, holds your interest, but not for everyone November 13, 2002
Whew! What a trip. This movie is about a stalker, reminiscent of FATAL ATTRACTION, but with some differences - this time the chilling menacing character is a teenager, she doesn't become pregnant that we know of, and she's if anything all the more chilling and menacing. Her name is Madison Bell (not a Wisconsin phone company), and she's played be Erika Christensen. It's a movie and a performance one will never forget (Caution - it could cause nightmares!). Her prey is a guy in a seemingly hunky-dory relationship with a girlfriend. Some reviewers want to make this a morality play about "don't cheat on your girlfriend" but that is really missing the point. Yes, her prey does have a "one-night-stand" with Madison. But that doesn't seem to turn her into a crazed stalker; it seems undoubtably that she was a crazed stalker already! Any attempts to blame the victim just don't wash at all in this case. It reminds me of what I've often heard recently from one news commentator, that there IS such a thing as just plain evil. Madison is evil; we needn't require that we find something that made her that way. If things that happened to her contributed to the way she is, that was all undoubtably before the movie's time frame. She clearly would have been menacing to her prey with or without his succumbing to the "one-night-stand"; that isn't a key plot turn in this case. And heaven help any unattached guy that Madison might have gone after -- this is definitely not mainly about cheating on one's girlfriend! I found this a highly watchable and captivating thriller, but not everybody would. A certain boy friend I know found it entirely "too close for comfort", and quite understandably so, as he's been the victim of a female stalker. By no means can one blame him for not warming up to this as "entertainment"!

4.0 out of 5 stars swimfan =not a bad breastroke September 9, 2002
I had huge hopes for this movie and when it was over not a bad flick.At times it was very predictable and been done before a 100 times over.But i knew that going in ,the acting was very convincing and top notch.My only cheif complaint it needed to be at least another 15 - 20 minutes longer.For me this is more like a guilty pleasure like film.Others will enjoy while some may think its a complete waste .Overall it delivers on most fronts and is very fast paced.I have always been a fan for this type of genre boarding on horror, so my opinion may be a little biased.

Format:DVD
Swimfan is supposed to be a horror movie. The scariest thing is what happened behind the camera. It scares the crap out of me that some executive thought this horrible script was good enough to be greenlit for movie production. Swimfan will give you the chills, aplenty, however they'll be from nausea and vomiting induced by what you see onscreen.

Swimfan revolves around a teenager (can't tell he's eighteen by that thirty-something five o'clock shadow and thinning hairline) who's on the swim team. The top jock at his high school, he meets up with a mysterious girl (always one of these in these type of movies, they all have curly blonde hair just like Glenn Close too) who drops into town. She's a big fan of athletes, and has taken a shine to our hero. Jockboy makes the mistake of saying he loves her to have sex with her. After sleeping with her, he promptly dumps her like most jocks do in these types of movies. This sets the swimfan off Fatal Attraction style like most female characters in these types of movies.

Right now you're probably thinking isn't this part of the plot of the Rage Carrie 2 and about a dozen other better horror movies? Yeah it is. If you're already this smart you've probably ejected the DVD and about to cry in front of the TV lamenting the $15 you lost buying this movie. Purchasing this movie at retail is THAT regrettable a decision.

There isn't an original scene in SwimFan. This movie is so predictable you can set your watch to it. When the barrage of E-mails doesn't capture the swimmer's attention, Crazy lady goes out and starts killing people. First it's the old man he talks to at the hospital with the wrong medicine, then it's his best friend. She runs down a female friend in his truck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictably Entertaining March 8, 2003
Format:DVD
Like the reviewer said Swimfan is Fatal Attraction for the teen set and it's so predictable you know exactly what the movie will entail within the first meeting of Madison Belle, played devilishy sweet by Erika Christenson. The plot goes like this. Boy meets girl,boy and girl have a one night stand, but boy has girlfriend, and girl goes psycho. Thats it in a nutshell, but the movie is a mere 85 minutes long, so things move along quickly and there are no unnescassay scenes. Jesse Bradford gives a convincing performance as Ben Cronin, the swimmer being stalked. While all the performances are good, including Shiri Appleby as Bens loving girlfriend, I would have liked to see the 2 actresses switch places. Shiri has such a sweet face and vulnerablity about her, and I think she could have potrayed the girl next door turned psycho role better. Overall, its a mindless fun. Sit back, laugh at some unintentionally funny dialogue, and enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars It March 12, 2003
Format:DVD
I was thoroughly board with this movie. I kept waiting for some scary, intense moments, and they just never came. The movie was very predictable and was not worth mine or anyone else's time. I recommend this to noone, especially those with ADHD, because there is nothing in it to keep you there.
