Night Swim and Lisa Frankenstein Bring Some Extra Horror to Peacock

If you ended up missing either Night Swim or Lisa Frankenstein during their respective runs, Peacock’s got covered. The two Universal films are landing on NBCUniversal’s streaming platform over the next two weeks—Lisa will drop next Friday, March 29, while Night Swim arrives the following week on April 5.

Of the two, Night Swim came out first on January 5, and is based on a 2014 short film from director Bryce McGuire and Rod Blackhurst. The film centers on a suburban family that’s just moved into its new house, which has a swimming pool in the backard that’s not quite right. The kids are seeing weird things either in the water or when they come up for air, and the dad (played by Wyatt Russell) is acting a bit off. Despite the negative reviews, it did pretty well in the box office, making $53.8 million on a $15 million budget.

Meanwhile, Lisa Frankenstein released February 9, written by Diablo Cody (of Jennifer’s Body fame) and helmed by first-time director Zelda Williams (who voiced Kuvira in Legend of Korra). Set in 1989, Kathryn Newton plays a goth girl who ends up reviving a Victorian-era corpse (played by Cole Sprouse) called the Creature. The two gradually start to fall for each other while also murdering people they don’t like and take those body parts to graft onto Creature so he looks less corpse-y. Unlike Night Swim, it got more mixed reviews, but ultimately fizzled at the box office, making $9.9 million on a $13 million budget. Within weeks of release, it left theaters to hit VOD.

Both of these coming to Peacock over the next two weeks will be especially good for those who don’t feel like seeing Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire or Monkey Man in theaters. If you’ve already seen Night Swim or Lisa, let us know what ou thought of them in the comments below.
