‘Night Swim,’ Universal’s horror thriller, is ready to open at the box office of the new year with an official theatrical release date of January 5, 2023, in the United States. As a horror film from Blumhouse and Universal Pictures, following the recent great records in the genre, there is a buzz surrounding ‘Night Swim,’ and critics and audiences are anticipating the release, whether it’s theatrical or through streaming. The theatrical release date is clear, but let’s find out about streaming options, especially for Netflix users.
Based on the 2014’s same name short film, the horror thriller ‘Night Swim’ is directed and written by Bryce McGuire with Rod Blackhurst and is staers Wyatt Russell, Kerry Condon, Amélie Hoeferle, and Gavin Warren. Produced by James Wan and Jason Blum under the production banners of Atomic Monster and Blumhouse Productions and is set to be distributed by Universal Pictures.
Will Night Swim be on Netflix?
No, It won’t be on Netflix. Blumhouse Productions’ ‘Night Swim’ will not be streaming on Netflix in the USA following its theatrical release, as it’s an official film from Universal Pictures. As a Universal Pictures film, ‘Night Swim’ is subject to Universal’s streaming policy, which ensures it will exclusively stream on Peacock following its theatrical release. Due to the lack of streaming rights and its availability on Peacock, there is no chance ‘Night Swim’ will ever be on Netflix, and Netflix users won’t be able to enjoy it on the platform. Even though Netflix is a major industry streaming platform, there is nothing for Netflix users who are hoping for the streaming of the film.
If you are a Netflix audience, and ‘Night Swim’ is on your watching list, in our opinion, watching it in theaters is an impressive and great experiential option for viewers, as it’s expected to be a great horror film from the production following the records of production in this genre. But if you are looking for streaming, then Peacock is the impressive option after the theatrical release. The remaining choices are based on individual preferences.
